Polaroid Cube+ review

 

Polaroid got a lot of attention last year for its Cube camera , a $100 (£90, AU$170) tiny square weatherproof camera that is little more than a lens with a power/record button on top and a magnet on the bottom for popping it onto a metal surface for...

The Polaroid Cube+ has the same supersmall lightweight design and ease of use as the original Cube, but with its wireless capabilities you can actually see what you're shooting by connecting to a smartphone or tablet. Video and photo features improve...

Video and photo quality, though better than the original Cube, is still just OK, best suited for viewing at small sizes, such as on a smartphone. Integrated battery means you'll have to recharge or connect to a power source to keep shooting.

The Polaroid Cube+ keeps all the good stuff from the original Cube -- namely its design, simple operation and reasonable price -- but the added wireless definitely makes it a better camera worthy of the extra cost.

Polaroid Cube

 

One button operation makes the camera incredibly easy to use. Video image quality is very good for an affordable action camera. Very simple to change camera settings.

One button operation makes the camera incredibly easy to use ; Video image quality is very good for an affordable action camera ; Very simple to change camera settings ; Tough and splashproof ; Great selections of mounts for the camera ; MSRP of $99.99...

No HDMI output ; Some of the camera mounts are not very secure, the camera could be knocked from with a simple bump ; Still image capture is sub-par ; No wireless capabilities ; Very Difficult to compose shots

The Polaroid Cube is an affordable action camera with good video quality. Its compact size makes it easy to carry at all times, just in case it would be needed. A great selection of camera mounts improves its versatility. With a MSRP of under $100,...

Polaroid Cube+ review

  (Rating Hidden)

An update to the original Cube (released in 2014), the Polaroid Cube+ is a compact action camera that is simple to operate, has built-in wi-fi and is available for a reasonable price. Polaroid gained a lot of attention when it first released the Cube,...

Polaroid Cube + Review

 

We take a look at the Polaroid Cube+ action cam that also takes 8mp stills.

Great looking compact design ; 8 megapixel stills ability ; App allows remote controlling of camera ; Magnet is useful for sticking camera to a surface

Image quality isn't great ; Video often underexposes and blows out the sky ; No mount included in box ; Short battery life ; Rubber casing makes camera point to floor when worn around neck

Some may look at the Polaroid Cube+ and wonder where it fits into the action camera market, as no real usable mount is included in the box. The built in magnet is handy for sticking the cube at a set point for stills images and capturing things going...

Review: Polaroid Cube

 

When someone mentions action cams, most people think of expensive pieces of equipment loaded with features designed for people who spend the weekend snowboarding off Mount Everest into a pool full of sharks. The Polaroid Cube action cam is also billed...

The case is rubberized, splash resistant, shockproof and has a small screw-open access port on the rear. Open this with a coin and inside is a mini USB port and a slot that takes a micro SD of up to 32 GB. Next to this is a switch to adjust between...

Polaroid Cube+

 

Avec la Cube+, Polaroid fait évoluer son Action Cam en la dotant d'une connexion Wi-Fi. Il est désormais possible de voir ce que l'on filme. Pour le reste, on retrouve les qualités du premier modèle : taille, poids et simplicité d'usage.

taille, poids, encombrement, Wi-Fi, 8 Go de mémoire interne, prix

qualité d'image légèrement en dessous de ce que propose ses concurrentes, batterie inamovible et autonomie limitée

La Polaroid Cube+ conserve tous les bons côtés de la première version à savoir son design, sa simplicité d'usage et son prix abordable, en lui ajoutant une connexion Wi-Fi. Le tout forme un ensemble nettement meilleur qui vaut la dépense supplémentaire.

Polaroid Cube+ im Test: Die günstige GoPro-Alternative?

 

Polaroid hat mit dem Cube+ die zweite Generation seiner günstigen Action-Cam vorgestellt. Der Cube+ kommt mit WiFi und besserer Auflösung als der Vorgänger. Mehr im ausführlichen Test.

klein und handlich ; einfach zu bedienen ; Zubehör zu erschwinglichen Preis ; robust und Outdoor-tauglich

Preis-Leistungsverhältnis mit Zubehör nicht ausreichend ; lange Auslöseverzögerung (> 1sec) ; Bildqualität könnte besser sein ; Farben verwaschen
