Plenty of us have big, expensive standalone cameras — and folders full of unfulfilled potential to go along with them. Relonch Camera promises to shift this entire paradigm by making the camera a service instead of a large purchase. The camera itself is wrapped in a handsome leather case that covers everything but the lens, shutter button, and viewfinder, removing the need/temptation to fiddle with settings. Your shots are uploaded via a built-in SIM card to their servers, where sophisticated algorithms pick your best shots, automatically adjust/develop them, and send them to the app for review. Pick your favorite photo from each day, and they'll send you a monthly photobook filled with your latest memories. All without the need to go to a camera shop or fire up a filter app.
A true Polaroid reimagined for the digital age, the Polaroid Pop Instant Camera is the spiritual successor to the 600 series. It has a 20 megapixel CMOS sensor, image stabilization, and a dual LED flash for capturing images. It has built-in Wifi and Bluetooth and a big touchscreen, shoots 1080p video, and stores its images to a microSD card. But most importantly, it has a built-in Zink printer that outputs 3x4" images with the iconic border, resulting in 3.5x4.25" prints, the same size as their models sold long ago. It can also serve as a wireless printer for your other gear, and its curvy design is as approachable as the classic OneStep SX-70.
You don't need a trailer to give yourself a sizable shelter on the road. The Alien Buffalo Tent gives you a large interior space yet still fits in your trunk. It's over nine feet tall with over 200 square feet of floor space, or enough to house up to 14 sleeping bodies. Made with a coated 400-denier floor, fire-retardant, water-resistant nylon ripstop exterior, and a carbon fiber composite frame, it's robust, yet weighs under 50 pounds. With excellent ventilation, an oversized door, and enough space for four air mattresses, it has all the room you need.
