The Polaroid iM1836 is the first non-Panasonic and non- Olympus camera that will also be compatible with MFT lenses. And here are some more facts about the camera:
1) The US company Sakar actually makes the camera. It borrowed the Polaroid name and (although not official) it also seems to have borrowed the Nikon J1 design.
2) The camera is modular. It means it has no sensor built into the camera itself. It’s built into the lens in case of the original Polaroid lenses (with 1 inch sensor). And while they didn’t say much about it I suspect there will be a MFT adapter with built-in sensor. You should be able to use all MFT lenses attached on that adapter.
3) Just to avoid any mistake. There is also a second model called “iM1030″ that doesn’t run Android OS (while the iM1836 is based on Android).
4) There is no production version of the camera yet and price will be close to $400.
All in all this is an attempt to build an “universal camera” a la Ricoh GXR. A camera with support for all possible system lenses and based on an open source platform. Will it work out? My answer is …no
