The Polaroid Z2300 features an integrated printer with ZINK Technology, enabling users to instantly capture, edit and in less than a minute print full color, 2x3” prints. Along with the ability to easily upload images to any social media platform, the Z2300 combines a compact form factor with a host of fun, easy-to-use features to create the ultimate social media machine.
Imagine a camera that lets you choose any of five picture qualities, gives you a 6-power zoom lens, an external LCD color monitor, 32MB of internal and 4GB of external storage, three choices of compression quality, a 5-mode flash strobe, three choices of picture metering, seven methods of white balancing, smile detection, time stamping, and then, when all those parameters come together for an exposure, the camera prints you a 2X3-inch hardcopy delivering it out of the side of the camera.
Well, not really. After all, this is what people have come to expect from a Polaroid camera; isn’t it? All that said, Polaroid wanted to give this camera even more of a “Wow” factor. They added high definition video recording capability. You now have three photographic miracles in one phenomenal package, a digital still-image camera, an HD video camera and a color printer. The Z2300 from Polaroid. Now, that’s amazing!

After some research of this and the Fuji Instax instant camera line, I settled on this one because of a couple of things.
1) The Polaroid Z2300 has the throwback design that ultimately made it more portable than the Fuji Instax cameras. Yes, it is bigger than many purely digital cameras but you have to take into consideration that it has the printer inside. I have no issue with their being actual buttons, at times it is easier for me than having a touchscreen.
2)User friendly memory. I got a 16gb sd card as a promotion and it serves me to be able to selectively print pictures than to just have them print immediately after taking them. I am not the world's best photographer and I wasted many an instant camera in high school due to my lack of skills. Nothing sucked more than finally getting everyone together in the perfect pose at the dance than to press the shutter and find my last picture was already taken :( I have been able to successfully transfer photos from my computer to the sd card to print from Facebook and other cameras, and have also used my phone's micro sd with an adapter to make prints directly using this camera.
Some photos do not show up because they are too high resolution (12MP is where I maxed out.) The Polaroid Z2300 only likes landscape, otherwise you get an error message and cannot print. I set my Polaroid Z2300 at 8MP and the pictures come out nice, very little gets cropped in the printing process. My new phone (HTC ONE 32GB)takes true landscape pics and I found that it will fit the entire picture in the print, but the pictures come out "letter boxed" at the top and bottom with white bars (see customer pics for mine.)
The ability to take video was another selling point as I do not always have enough battery or memory available on my phone to take HD videos. The format is .avi and to my amateur pov looks good, definitely HD quality. Be warned that the video takes up A LOT of memory and the camera only takes up to 32GB SD cards.
3) INSTANT MEMORIES! I love that I can just print out a picture and touch it, use it, rub it and none of those things will mess it up after it's done. The fact that it is also a sticker makes making albums and Smashbooks easier. I have given them out as gifts to friends, use it to make going away presents for coworkers and it has been handy to use as "wallets" like back in the day. My little cousins personalized backpacks and for an avid Disneyland visitor like me, having prints of those memories is priceless.
1) Picture quality is not always the best, you have to learn what setting works for what scene. This may be a hassle for some people but since I choose what pictures to print and save, not so much of a dealbreaker, just wanted to point it out to others. Colors are either brilliant and spot on, or slightly orangey. They look better on the computer than the camera's LCD screen. Printouts also can come out washed out but it depends on the picture taken in my pov.
2) Battery life not so good when printing multiples. It tends to run out faster when I am just in a printing session and unfortunately taking out the camera battery deletes the date/time setting, which you have to set before being able to take pictures. The battery is removable though but it does charge through ac adapter only. I have yet tried to charge it through usb. Mine came with all these plug adapters for different countries, which may be useful for those that travel, but I just stored them in the junk drawer. I do plan on getting a new battery for just in case.
3)You will not find ZINK Premium photo papers Polaroid 2x3" Premium ZINK Photo paper - 50-Pack in stores. I have been able to order some off Amazon but if I run out, I cannot just go to the store and get more. Keep that in mind if you are wanting this camera for crafting purposes or events. The paper itself is cheap and I haven't wasted more than a handful in the past year. I believe around $0.50 a print.
If you want a fun camera that helps you shares memories in a unique way, I recommend this camera. This is a gadget in all the sense of the word, not something professional photographers or nitpickers should get, because you will be disappointed. Figure out if your needs are what this camera can give you, because I am thoroughly happy with mine and will be giving one to my cousin now that the price has gone down.
After almost a year of owning this camera, I can clearly write about the pros and cons of owning this camera:
-First of all, the fact that you can decide which photos you print is so underrated. You can not even imagine the number of times people appear with their eyes closed on the photograph.
-The design is really nice, it is a combination of the old-school, classic design and a modern, contemporary design. It is thicker than a normal digital camera but it is slick enough to put it in your pocket.
-You can edit your photos before you print them. It is really fun to take a photo and apply a black and white filter, or to accentuate the colors, for example.
-It has a lot of different modes, some more common than others (night, fisheye, fireworks, water, kids, party, among many others).
-The film is really cheap, in comparison to the Impossible Project. It is in the same price range as the whole Fuji Instax line but the film the Z2300 uses can also be used as a sticker.
-The build quality is good, it is completely made out of plastic. There is a wide variety of colors to choose from, I bought the white one, and despite all of the use, it is as clean as the first day I got it.
-The print quality is great, despite being a little grainy at times, but it depends on the photo you took. The film is just as Polaroid promotes it: you can touch it right after you printed it and the colors will not move, it resists a little water and it is said to be almost unbreakeable (I did not try this one myself because I did not want to risk losing a photo).
-Despite the fact that the camera’s quality is 10mp, the photographs seem to be of less quality.
-I also bought the Neoprene Pouch and sometimes when I put the camera in it, the On/Off button turns on, so I have to put it in very gently.
-Since the film is also a sticker (as I mentioned earlier), after a few months the film starts to curve itself because of the glue it has, so that is one of the biggest letdowns in my opinion. The Fuji Instax does not have this problem because it is a little sturdier and more rigid.
-It does not have a counter to let you know how many papers you have left (like the old Polaroid cameras used to), so from time to time I have to open it (without letting the sun or any kind of light hit it directly so as to not ruin it) and check how many I have left.
Overall, it is a great camera and I recommend it, in spite of the film bending after a few months but it is just a minor setback. If you want to take photos and you are looking for an instant camera, it does not get much better than this.
