Polaroid Brings Back Instant Prints With The Z2300
In the age of digital photography, we hardly ever print our photos since we can view and share them instantly. Back in the time of film, the most instant type of camera was the Polaroid, which spat out little 3.5 x 4.5 inch prints on the spot. The company hopes to bring that back with the Z2300 compact digital camera, which has a built-in photo printer that uses their proprietary ZINK technology. The point-and-shoot takes 10-megapixel-sized images, which you can edit in-camera and either keep on the SD card as a soft file or you can choose to print it out, which takes about 30 seconds (no shaking required). Each print measures 2 by 3 inches and you can pack 10 of them in the camera. The paper comes in packs of 30 and 50, costing US$14.99 (PhP 634) and US$24.99 (PhP 1,056) respectively. The camera itself costs US$159.99 (PhP 6,762) and will come out in the US in August, making its way here soon after.
