Prior to the age of digital cameras, there was the Polaroid. A camera that was by no means portable, but it had the novelty and the convenience of being able to print photos out on the spot as opposed to having to take it to be developed. Perhaps looking to remain relevant in today’s day and age of digital cameras, Polaroid has revealed the Z2300 digital camera. Shaped and designed to look like today’s digital cameras, the Z2300 still retains the signature feature of its predecessors, which is its ability to print photos on the fly. However instead of printing photos that requires the photographer to shake it to let it develop (Polaroid users back in the day know what I’m talking about), it will instead be printed via an integrated printer.
It is capable of producing 2×3” prints using Zero Ink printing technology which allows the images printed to be both moisture and UV resistant, smudge proof and is also expected to be longer lasting (although well-kept Polaroid photos back in the day still retain some of the color and quality). The camera itself features a 10MP sensor and a 3” LCD display on its rear. It will also come with 32GB of internal storage and will be bundled with 4GB of external storage and will support SD cards of up to 32GB. It also has the ability to capture HD video. Priced at $159.99, the camera is up for pre-order and will begin shipping this August. The Zero Ink paper can also be bought in either 50-sheet packs or 30-sheet packs and are priced at $24.99 and $14.99 respectively.
