Polaroid unveils Z2300 Instant Digital Camera

I think anyone that grew up in the 80s will remember the Polaroid instant cameras that spit the picture out of the front. I know when I was growing up we always thought watching those pictures develop was the coolest thing ever. Polaroid has a new instant camera called the Z2300 Instant Digital Camera that is a modern version of that 80s instant camera.

The Z2300 has an integrated ZINK Technology printer inside the digital camera that allows you to take digital photos, and then print a 2 x 3-inch hard copy immediately. The digital camera can also upload images to social media sites such as Facebook. The camera comes in two colors, including black and white.

The camera resolution is 10-megapixels and has a three-inch LCD on the back so you can preview the image before you print. The printer integrated into the camera uses no ink. The paper the ZINK printer uses is a composite material that has cyan, yellow, and magenta dye crystals embedded in paper. The printer uses heat to activate and colorize the crystals to deliver a clear and vibrant print in less than a minute. The Z2300 camera is priced at $159.99. The 2 x 3" ZINK paper sells for $24.99 for 50 sheets, and a 30-sheet pack is available for $14.99.
