What you GET in the box:
—> Snap camera
—> Wrist strap
—> Micro USB charging cable
—> Small illustration for paper placement and powering on.
What you NEED before you can use this:*
—> micro SD card (up to 32 GB) - it will format your card so don't use one with other files on it.
—> Polaroid 2x3 inch Premium ZINK Photo Paper (30 Sheets) - Compatible With Polaroid Snap, Z2300, SocialMatic Instant Cameras & Zip Instant Printer (premium) or 2x3 Inch ZINK Photo Paper for Pogo Cameras and Printers (Pack of 100!) (basic). The premium paper prints much better!
* You CAN take pictures without the SD card but you must have paper. OR you can take pictures without the paper but you must have an SD card.
The quick rundown: This is a 10MP camera that takes photos and saves them to the SD card AND prints them out onto 2x3 mini prints (optional as stickers) without the addition of ink or anything else. It is compact and will fit in a pocket. It includes a flash and a removable MAGNETIC lens cap. The pictures are good and are better when printed on the premium paper. But you also have the image on the SD card as long as it is loaded.
The rest of the story:
==> A few years ago, I purchased a Polaroid camera for my daughter. It ran about $65. I also bought a POGO Instant Printer (that uses the same ZINK paper) for about $40. Between the two, it was the same price as this camera and the Snap is more convenient to carry.
==> There are no instructions with the camera other than how to push the viewfinder up to power on and how to load the paper. It took some trial and error although it would seem like it would be intuitive to operate.
==> Some of my prints have streaks through them when using the basic paper.
==> The premium paper is running about 50¢ per piece. The basic paper is about 30¢ a piece - pricing depends on the volume as well.
==> You are looking at your shot through a small viewfinder on top of the camera. There is no LCD display and no way to review photos after taking them other than the prints or putting the SD card in your computer.
==> The digital photos are good for up to about a 9x12 print at 300 dpi.
==> The camera lens cap is magnetic - very cool - but you won't know it is on when looking through the viewfinder. It may be easy to lose if you don't keep it in a pocket and remember to put it back on.
==> You can take color or black and white and a vintage style to mimic the old Polaroid prints.
==> There is no way to stop it from printing a picture as long as there is paper in the camera. If you don't want a print, take the paper out.
==> There is no zoom or wide angle, you get what you get and the viewfinder is not an exact image of the picture - it might be off a bit.
==> There is a tripod mount and a 10 second timer (which you can also activate by holding down the shutter.
==> The battery charges quickly and has lasted well so far.
==> You don't get the same shutter sound as other digital cameras so sometimes it can be difficult to know if you took the picture. The sound you hear is subtle.
==> The paper goes in the camera with the glossy (print) side facing OUT, it holds 10 sheets at a time.
==> There is a cute feature, next to the color selections, that allows you to print with the familiar white border of the old Polaroid snaps. You can turn this feature on and off.
Our local camp also uses a Polaroid camera and POGO printer to takes pics of their campers for a "Passport." This kind of camera eliminates the additional steps and could make the process quicker and more fun for the campers.
The bottom line: This snappy little camera is best in good light situations. It will not replace a good digital camera for quality of photos and features but it will provide a fun way to capture and print on the spot photos. It is great for parties, identification photos, or just for fun with friends. The paper can be costly and the prints are small. But the instant gratification and fun of watching the photo print on the spot is worth it.
A unit was provided for evaluation and review.
-No batteries (that I saw were needed in other cameras), this might be something not so bothersome but its 2016 and a camera shouldnt need AA batteries.
-Memory Card, you can store your pics, have them on your computer, share them, whatever. I recently used this to take a picture with a foreign friend and was able to give her the picture, knowing that I would have a copy of it. Really cool.
-Doesn't look like a toy, I know this might not be an issue for everyone but I am seriously not into any of the designs of the Fuji ones, and believe me, before I made my choice between cameras I saw all of them in person in Urban Outfitters and Best Buy,
-Paper can be a little cheaper, its not that big of a difference, but its a plus
-Filters, this comes in b&w, regular colors and vintage colors, its cool they come out even more cool (hipster for some people I guess). Also the advantage of being able to have it with or withour border or having the photobooth option.
What I was worried about:
-Filters, I read some reviews about it coming out wrong, light, etc, I do have to say that color and b&w are perfectly fine, the vintage one is the only one I've had issues with, can't seem to make it work in a way that looks amazing like the other two.
- I read about the framing of the picture, how what you see through the eyehole was not what came out in the picture, and its true, but It's not as bad as I read. In reality what gets printed is a cropped version from what you see through the eyehole, so if you're trying to make a lot of people fit into a picture you should try to leave extra space on the sides.
-Quality, but as I said before, they come out fine, at least i think so, I had fuji pictures (taken with friends' cameras) and my pictures and they really do seem great to me.
-You need to look up the user guide on the internet, its on the polaroid web page, but everything is there
-The lens cover, don't forget to take it off!!
- The eyehole/on button is very sensitive and can open at any moment, I bought a case so it wouldn't be a problem anymore.
All in all I really thing its a great choice, great price, but I get why people would prefer other cameras. I hope this review was helpful, and sorry for any mistakes, english is not my first language.
