Polaroid Pop Shoots, Print In 3×4” Format, Print For Other Devices Too

Polaroid has a new instant digital camera and it is called Pop. So what’s makes Pop pops? First and obviously, it makes instant print, courtesy of an integrated printer that uses ZINK Zero Ink Printing Technology and second, it prints in the iconic 3×4” format with the Polaroid Classic Border Logo, giving you the familiar 3.5×4.25” print. Now, that’s freaking awesome! Unfortunately, it does not get the classic look; instead, it gets a contemporary form factor in a fun two tone color with a contrasting iconic red shutter button (designed with renowned design studio Ammunition).

The Impossible Project’s First Instant Camera Can Be Controlled With An App

Good news, fans of instant photography. The Impossible Project’s first instant camera is official. The I-1, as it is called, brings together best of two worlds: the world of good’ol analog instant camera and the world of digital controls.

Prynt Case Wants to Turn Your Smartphone into an Instant Camera

Instant photography is all the rage now and when you think of instant prints, you probably think of three things: Polaroid, Fuji Instax and last but not the least, portable photo printers.

The product, simply dubbed Prynt Case, connects with your mobile device via physical connector built into the case, so all you have to do is plug your device into the case, take a photo, and voila! instant print, anytime, anywhere. There is no doubt that Prynt Case is essentially a photo printer stuck to back of your phone, but though so, you’re not limited to freshly captured images; you can also print images on your Facebook or Instagram, for examples.
