Back in the 20th century, Polaroid was a legendary brand of camera that still elicits nostalgia from anyone old enough to have used one. As far as I know, this is the first ever Polaroid-branded digital camera, so they have a huge opportunity to corner a sizable market share with a well-made, well-marketed product. So probably the easiest thing they had to do was come up with a suitable name. And lo and behold, the marketing geniuses at Sakar (never heard of them) came up with the brilliant moniker of...iM1836...the hell is that??? A meaningless mashup of letters and numbers, uppercase, lowercase, how utterly stupid would anyone have to be to approve such an outrageously unmemorable name for a just-revived brand's new flagship digital camera? I mean, they didn't even put any ZEROES in the model number! iM1836 must have come from the same bigshots who thought they were so clever to come up with the movie name "jOBS", obtuse capitalization and all.

As for the question I posed in the title, given the context of this event and the seemingly entropic nature of the name, I cannot think of a single serious camera (as opposed to some toy for kids) with a worse name, or even as bad a name, as this. Please discuss any contenders for this ignominious distinction.

Sakar makes this one too:
