New, smaller instant printing camera from Polaroid

Boot Camp feature for Friday, July 13, 2012

A smaller instant printing camera from Polaroid.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   You can’t really call it small, but the new Z2300 digital camera from Polaroid is a lot more pocket sized than the company’s previous model.   It’s a 10 megapixel camera with a digital only zoom.  The fun, is in the camera’s ability to deliver 2 by 3 inch prints on the spot.   Polaroid President Scott Hardy…

“It holds basically a ten pack of paper.  The paper is a technology called Zink, which stands for zero ink.  And it’s put out by a company called Zero Imaging which was born inside of Polaroid many years ago.  With no ribbons, no cables, no ink cartridges, all of the magic is embedded in the paper so you can print these images on the go.  If you want more shots, you just load in more paper.”

The prints cost about fifty cents.  The Z2300 is due to arrive next month for about 160 dollars.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
