Snapchat pics disappear in a day. These cameras print photos you can hold forever.
1. Leica Sofort
BEST FOR: Impatient art directors
The retro-chunky Sofort doesn’t match the features of a real-deal Leica, but it does push past the basics. It gives you solid control over camera settings, offers modes for macro and “party” shots, and includes a front-facing mirror for, yes, insta-selfies. Load it with industry-standard Fuji Instax Mini film or two Leica-branded varieties. | $300
2. Polaroid Pop
BEST FOR: Nostalgic digerati
While it inherits Polaroid’s analog legacy, the Pop knows a few digital tricks. Its LCD touchscreen serves up a bevy of filters and stickers, and its 20-megapixel sensor and hi-def video are on par with your phone. When you’re ready to print, the Pop spits out inkless photos the same size as those iconic Polaroids of yore. | $200
