I traveled around Europe and Northern Africa for more than nine months, through three seasons and over that time, I had come to accumulate too much gear; from hot to warm to cold weather. When you live out of your pack, every piece of clothing, computer, camera and outdoor gear weighs down on you. Believe me, the quality and comfort of your shoulders and back will never be the same. Every ounce counts, and I learned that the hard way. Nowadays, I use a keen eye when choosing equipment for my travels, and today I'm here to talk about the new and exciting industry of portable mini cameras.
The Cube is similar in someways to its competitor, the GoPro, but it is much smaller, cheaper, and easier to implement in those tight and hard to mount spaces. Polaroid made sure the Cube was relevant in a world obsessed with quality and technological advancement. It's a HD Action camera that shoots Full HD video at 1080p and 720p, and it has a microphone. The camera handles still pictures at 6MP, providing dynamic wide angle images at a lens angle of 124° wide. The Polaroid Cube is weatherproof and splash proof, and it takes Micro SD cards up to 32GB. All of that packed in a 1.38" x 1.38" square. I found the Cube to be perfect for backpacking; it's small, light and powerful. GoPro may be the standard right now, but perhaps not for long... The GoPro is great for certain situations, but for me, for my life and travels, I would choose the Cube for its size and price.
