Prints without ink using ZINK Zero Ink Printing Technology from ZINK Imaging.
Camera Phone The Polaroid PoGo Digital Instant Mobile Photo Printer is the easiest way to print photos from a camera phone. Wirelessly transfer images from a Bluetooth-enabled camera phone to the Mobile Printer and print instantly. Using the built-in OBEX (object exchange profile) Bluetooth in the phone and the printer, connecting and printing becomes instant.
Digital Camera Instantly printing images from a digital camera is as easy as connecting the USB cable to the PictBridge-enabled camera and printer. Once connected, follow the PictBridge screen on the camera display. Simply select what image to send to the printer and within 60 seconds, the print is ready to be shared.
ZINK stands for Zero Ink - a new and simpler approach to printing where high quality, colorful, durable and affordable prints are magically created -- all without a drop of ink. The ZINK Technology, invented by ZINK Imaging, encompasses both the ZINK Paper and the intelligence embedded in every ZINK-enabled device. Over 100 patents and patents pending were generated in the development of this breakthrough technology.
The heart of this new "ZINK" category of printing is the ZINK Paper. The patented ZINK Paper is an advanced composite material with embedded yellow, magenta and cyan dye crystals, activated with 200 million heat pulses, in 30 seconds, in a single pass. With 100 billion crystals in a 2 x 3-inch print, the paper is 100-percent inkless. A ZINK-enabled printer uses heat to activate and colorize these crystals. Because there is no ink, every ZINK-enabled device has the unique benefits of being small, simple and elegant.
Polaroid is leveraging the ZINK Technology to bring a new family of digital instant products to the marketplace. The Polaroid Digital Instant Mobile Photo Printer is the first ZINK-enabled device available.

When this originally came out I remember it retailing for over $150. The picture quality was pretty awful then too. But $150 is a high price to pay for awful pictures.
Now that it is around $30 for a used one I can say that I'm happier with my purchase. This bluetooth model would have been great for printing pictures on the go from my Motorola Droid Razr as well as my Nikon D5100 DSLR with Pictbridge. Unfortunately the bluetooth was a huge disappointment. For some reason the picture would not transmit to the printer via bluetooth even though the printer and my phone were paired successfully and recognized. Apparently it was enough of a problem that Polaroid introduced an app to solve this problem. (Just fyi from what I understand it won't print from iPhones either).
Well, long story short the app is terrible. It works, don't get me wrong! But why oh why did Polaroid have to butcher the app by not allowing the user to print one, very simple picture, onto the 2"x3" paper? No, the app forces users to squeeze 2+ more photos into a 2"x3" template. What you get are super tiny, squished versions of your photos on the wallet sized paper. It's bad enough that you cannot print wallet sized photos, but worse that even the templates they make you use DISTORT the heck out of your photos to the point where it's just not usable. (Read the reviews on the Pogo Android app). The thing that really bums me out is not being able to use the many creativity apps on my phone to spruce up pictures and then print them out. And wouldn't you know it? Polaroid doesn't care! There's very little support for anything and despite the complaints in the Google Play Store they have largely ignored the problem. Did I mention the sheet of paper they call a "user manual" that comes with the printer?
There are other apps for bluetooth printers in the Google store but they are more for full sized home/office printers equipped with bluetooth (as they require printer drivers). Therefore the bluetooth function/convenience is completely useless for the majority of us with smart phones.
On the other hand the printer works great with my Nikon D5100. I simply plugged my Nikon usb cable into camera and printer and voila! Pictbridge instantly came up, prompting me to simply select my photo and print. I got pretty cool wallet sized prints from my camera. The quality was mediocre at best with the streaks (everyone has problems with the streaking!) and popart-like color of my photos. I even printed a portrait of my dog playing in the grass...though my dog came out a little dark and grass looked neon green. It's still fun, and when you put a bunch of these popart-like prints together you get a pretty neat Instagram-ish album. It's like making Lo-fi and Hi-fi pics without the effort.
My recommendation is to buy this printer dirt cheap. It's not worth paying big bucks for but makes a great toy for the photo enthusiast.
This isn't going to create archive quality photos - but I didn't buy it expecting that it would. I think I read someone's review said the quality is most similar to what you'd get from a photo booth filmstrip, which is a pretty good comparison, maybe not quite as good as that. Basically, it's a more modern version of a polariod instant camera - without the camera.
It synched up to my Canon Powershot (Elph) no problem. It does take a good 10 to 15 seconds to send the image, but it's no slower than most photo printers. I'd like to be able to print directly from the computer; I know it's not the original intent of the printer, but hopefully once I find the right cable to connect them that will be an option.
I also tried it with my cell phone, a Samsung A737; the phone found the device quickly and printed the image with no trouble. I then immediately tried printing from my Motorola Razr V3, and again, no problem.
I have a few ideas for how I'll use this, but it's perfect for my first project - taking pictures of each pair of shoes and sticking it to the outside of the plastic shoe storage box so I don't have to open all of the lids trying to find that one pair of shoes :). So, for the price I paid, it's a pretty cool label maker, lol. And I love that the film paper comes with removable backing; it sticks well.
It's a fun and very compact little printer; at the price I paid on sale, I would definitely recommend this. I don't think I would have paid more for it, definitely not what is shown as the list price. And I would recommend buying the larger packs of paper for better value.
The item works as described and makes a great print-on-the-go solution. It's fun at parties and really handy whenever you need a quick "credit card" sized print or wallet sized photo print. The paper is a little cost prohibitive, but if you only use it occasionally, it's not too bad. The printer prints fairly slow, but the wow factor makes up for it when you show someone a picture you just took pop out the slot completely wireless.
The battery life is fairly short, so be prepared to plug it in if you want to run off more than 10 prints at a time, but it is nice not to have to buy alkalines all the time!
All in all, this is a great little printer that does more than you'd think considering its novel size and weight.
