The Polaroid name is a blast from the past. Some of us remember waiting for a photo to develop after it popped out of the camera, giving us the only “instant” photos of the film era. Now Polaroid has their ZIP mobile printer. The ZIP is in the same realm as Fuji’s Instax SP-2 Printer. First, I’ll give you the rundown of the Polaroid offering. And at the bottom of this article, I’ve got a quick comparison between
Polaroid Instant Print
Now you can get the functionality of Polaroid instant print cameras for your camera phone or any other device. This standalone mobile printer is designed to print color photos from a variety of sources. It features its own rechargeable 500mAh lithium polymer battery. After just 1.5 hours of charging time, it is ready to print 25 sheets before needing another charge. A standard micro-USB port – and included USB to micro-USB cable – means no special (read: expensive) adapters or cables needed. Simply plug it into your computer or a wall outlet (with optional adapter).
ZINK Zero Ink Paper
Forget messy ink cartridges and ribbons. This mobile printer is smart enough to understand that you’ll be taking it on the most outrageous adventures around the globe! That’s why it prints your photos onto ZINK photo paper, which, when subjected to heat from the printer, activates unique color-forming molecules embedded in the paper’s layers. The resulting prints measure 2×3″, feature deep, vibrant colors, are completely smudge-proof, and sport a peel-back sticky paper for even more fun. Your Polaroid ZIP mobile printer ships with 10 premium ZINK sheets; refills can be purchased on Amazon.com.
iOS & Android. Bluetooth & NFC. And more.
Sending your photos to the mobile printer is super easy. Simply connect your iOS or Android smartphones, tablets and other devices over Bluetooth or NFC, and print wirelessly from anywhere within range. Your purchase of the Polaroid ZIP mobile printer also includes a FREE download of the Polaroid ZIP app for iOS and Android devices. With a few finger taps, you can edit your photos before printing. Add emojis, voice recordings, general text, links and a lot more.
