Kodak’s authorized brand licensee, C+A Global’s Kodak Smile Instant Print Digital Camera and Kodak Smile Instant Print Digital Printer announced earlier this year are now officially available. For someone who are not keen in printing anything, I am skeptical about the reception of such products. But who am I to judge? I am very likely a minority in this aspect, so don’t mind me. Having said that, in case you are down for it, continue reading to find a refresher on what these two hardware can do for you.
The KODAK SMILE Instant Print Digital Camera: Print in an Instant
The 10 mega-pixel KODAK SMILE Instant Print Digital Camera is a stylish camera that combines the nostalgia of instant analog photography with ZINK Zero Ink Printing Technology. Equipped with a delightful slide-open design and convenient LCD viewfinder, it’s now even easier to point, shoot and print 2”x3” ZINK adhesive-backed photos. The camera comes with a 10-second timer, automatic flash and a MicroSD card slot. With the built-in preview feature, photos can be reviewed and edited with filters and borders or transformed into a collage before printing for more fun and customization.
The KODAK SMILE Instant Digital Printer: Print Fun Memories On-The-Go
The KODAK SMILE Instant Digital Printer offers a quick and easy way to print photos with its intuitive design. Easily load 2”x3” adhesive-backed ZINK photo paper with a quick slide insert that makes loading paper one fluid motion. Photos can be sent to the printer via BLUETOOTH connection using the free companion app, compatible with iOS and Android devices, Pictures can be edited and decorated right within the app, then printed or seamlessly shared on social media for everyone in your network to enjoy.
In addition, there’s, of course, the new Kodak Smile app that will spice up the fun further. With the app, you can use augmented reality to enhance the fun of instantly printing photos like attaching any video from your media library, including sound, up to 30 seconds.
Photos printed using the Smile Instant Digital Printer, you can use the app to view the corresponding video just by holding the smartphone over the photo, much like how the Fujifilm Instax Mini LiPlay Instant Camera does with audio. The idea is to expand beyond still image by leveraging on your smartphone. Kodak Smile app is available as a free download on App Store and Google Play Store.
