Making an Instagram camera makes perfect sense due to its popularity. The app which has been purchased by Facebook had a minor setback recently due to privacy concerns but that hasn’t stopped it from growing its number of users.
Socialmatic is a new Italian design company that made an agreement with Polaroid to produce Instagram cameras. Included in this deal is the manufacture of accessories such as camera bag, lenses and filters.
While no specific date has been set as to when this device will be released an announcement was made that it will definitely be available at the first quarter of 2014.
