Both the manufacturer and the buyers were overwhelmed lately by problems they had with digital cameras from Polaroid. An example is the Polaroid a520M which they shouldn’t have released at all if they knew what was going to follow. If you didn’t use the flash when you took photos you had a good chance of getting them underexposed. And if you did use the flash, you would get them overexposed. Either way, the photos didn’t come out well. You also couldn’t see the viewing screen well if the room didn’t have good light. When you put the focus on the subject, the background was not focused. And this is only a small part of the issues that come with this particular digital camera. Some positives did exist with this camera, but not really enough to justify keeping it in production.
Another problem that Polaroid had was with the x530 digital camera. This model was made by a company from Hong Kong, using the name of Polaroid. The result was a low quality digital camera that took horrible photos. This was noticed really fast by the buyers and the reviews weren’t pretty. While it’s not easy to make digital cameras, if you don’t make them by using the latest technology, the end result will be bad reviews and customers that are annoyed. The Polaroid x530 was another of their digital cameras that was withdrawn from the stores. If you bought this camera, then you got a full refund. After this model, Polaroid launched a new model, called PDC-3000. It was another failure, looking awkward and giving poor looking photos.
When you want to buy a digital camera in today’s market, you should compare a lot of cameras, see their specifications and reviews, and find out which one is the better fit for you. Yes, certain manufacturers have a great reputation and almost all of their cameras are great. The key word here is “almost all”. Everyone launches a weak model once in a while, so looking for reviews is a must if you want to buy a new digital camera.
