The following review will give you a brief overview of what it'll mean to use the Polaroid Zip Instant Photoprinter.

Not really, says GoPro, this is a new camera with new abilities - it just... maybe looks... similar.

Polaroid iZone camera: a companion for Android and iOS handsets

Among Polaroid's CES 2015 wares is the iZone camera, a square-shaped compact point-and-shoot camera with optical zoom and the ability to work with your Android or iOS mobile device. The maker refers to iZone as a companion device for your smartphone or tablet, the latter of which works as a remote view finder and a storage base for taking/saving images with the Polaroid camera. The idea behind such a device is that the companion camera will (likely) be of a somewhat higher quality than your smartphone, but without the same sharing features and power as your handset.
