Product description

A compact and durable point-and-shoot, the red iS048 Digital Camera from Polaroid features a 16MP image sensor along with a tough construction that renders it water, dust, shock, and freezeproof. The image sensor allows you to shoot high-resolution stills as well as HD 720p video, and an integrated 2.4" LCD monitor is used for image review and composition. The fixed lens utilizes 4x digital zoom to cover wide-angle to short telephoto perspectives, and digital anti-shake image stabilization also helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. A built-in flash provides additional illumination when working in low-light conditions and the camera runs on two AAA batteries.
    • 16MP image sensor is used for recording both still photos and HD 720p video
    • Fixed lens employs 4x digital zoom to cover wide-angle to short telephoto perspectives

    • Durable construction renders this camera waterproof to depths up to 10', as well as resistant to drops, freezing temperatures, and dust
    • 2.4" rear LCD monitor for composing and reviewing images
    • Uses two AAA batteries as its power source

    All I want is to get a copy of the full camera manual for my Polaroid ISO49 (NOT a '48' model) camera instead of the very incomplete "Quick Start Guide" so how can I ACTUALLY get one?? The online sites are of NO help whatsoever......I'm starting to regret buying this camera! And what's with the USB port being in the battery compartment?? in order to use it, you must open the compartment door which allows the batteries to fall out, rendering the camera inoperable. Any suggestions or is that just how it goes??
