We’ve snuck into CES a little early, before the doors open proper, and what do we find? Polaroid’s fabled next-gen film camera. It looks a peach, and works with re-engineered Polaroid film cartridges.

Dubbed the PIC-1000, the new Polaroid film camera is a return to the instant film maker’s roots, yet still looks modern. Clad in metallic plastic or wood-effect, it’s curvy enough to look modern, while retro enough to make our nostalgic hearts skip a beat.

There’s no firm release date yet, and we hear the two we saw are the only ones currently in existence.

Polaroid says the new PIC-1000 film camera will shoot as close as 2ft or 0.6 meters, has a self timer, flash and red-eye reduction built in. The real kicker though, is that the PIC-1000 camera will work with Polaroid 1000 instant film, currently being re-engineered for the 21st century as part of the Impossible Project.

Feast your eyes on the new Polaroid film camera in our gallery above. It stopped us in our tracks with its retro-futurism. Do you agree? Give us a shout in the comments section.

    That is ugly as hell. I’ll stick to my SLR 680 from before Polaroid imploded. Polaroid couldn’t force one of those into my hands if it was stuffed with $1,000,000 (okay maybe they could, but the camera would end up in the dumpster right after i got the money out)
