Polaroid Snap Instant Digital Camera

The Polaroid Snap instant digital camera is the newest addition to the brand's expanding instant digital camera line. Combining digital imaging with ZINK® Zero Ink® Printing platform, the Polaroid Snap enables users to easily print and share physical photos at the push of a button, while saving their image for easy uploading to a computer and any social media platform. With a pocket-sized form factor and affordable price point, the Polaroid Snap delivers the instant simplicity and spontaneity that represents the Polaroid brand DNA.

Polaroid Zip Instant Photoprinter

Polaroid is enabling consumers to instantly print and share images anywhere using their mobile device and the Polaroid Zip instant photoprinter. Approximately the size of a smartphone, the Polaroid Zip is one of the smallest and lightest portable printers in today's market. The device used the revolutionary ink-free Zero Ink® Printing technology developed by ZINK. The Polaroid Zip instant photoprinter features a free app available for iOS and Android devices, giving users the ability to express their creativity and enhance their prints.

Polaroid Cube+ Lifestyle Action Camera

The Polaroid Cube+ is a fun, easy-to-use and affordable lifestyle action camera. With a unique, square form factor, exciting colors and accessories, competitive feature set and reasonable price-point, the first generation Polaroid Cube broke the mold and opened the action camera market to everyday consumers and families who want to capture their memories. The Polaroid Cube+ is Wi-Fi enabled and more mobile friendly than its predecessor. With the free Polaroid Cube+ app for iOS or Android devices, users can utilize their mobile device as a viewfinder, control the camera and save images and videos directly to their tablet or phone, making capturing life's best moments easier than ever.

ZINK Zero Ink® Printing

The Polaroid Snap instant digital camera and the Polaroid Zip instant photoprinter use the revolutionary ink-free Zero Ink® Printing technology developed by ZINK. The ZINK-enabled printer uses heat to activate and colorize cyan, yellow and magenta dye crystals embedded in the paper. The result is full-color, high quality, long-lasting and smudge-proof images without ink cartridges, ribbons or toner.

The 2x3" photo prints in just under a minute so consumers can instantly share the photo with their friends and family. Additionally, because ZINK Paper® is adhesive backed, the photo can be used as a sticker as well.
