As mentioned earlier, this portable photo printer does not require ink in printing. The Sprocket uses a technology called Zink technology which is actually originally develped by Polaroid.

What are the best features of this portable printer?

Those who take lots of photos from their smartphones will be most useful for this photo printer. The photos are printed out in less than a minute – approximately 50 seconds. Zink technology mentioned earlier is a printing system that uses a paper that is layered with multiple transparent dyes. These dyes are activated with heat impulses of varrying leng and intensity coming from a thermal print head.

A great feature of this app is that it can be easily linked to social media accounts like Facebook, Instagram or Flickr. From then on, it will be easy to access more photos and instantly print them. The app also features editing tools that allows the users to use stickers, captions, borders or filters before printing.

It takes about 90 minutes to get a full charge on the printer and a single charge is able to print up to 30 2×3 prints. The printer can only hold 10 papers sheets inside. Although the portability and size is a big advantage of this device, the print quality is not much impressive as it is reliant on the photo’s subject. On a closer range it can show images vividly and detailed but on a farther range, the colors seems to blend too much and some colors are lost. Color resolution is 313 x 400 dpi.

  • Printing is limited only to one size which is 2×3 inches

The print paper can be expensive as it is small and the print quality is not at optimal quality. This printer’s portability is probably the best feature of this device where the user can have fun in the instant print out of photos from smartphones.

What are the best features of Polaroid POP 3×4″ Instant Print Digital Camera?

The Polaroid Pop is not just an ordinary instant camera. Its design is quite neat, thin and slick. But apart from the chic look, it has a whoping 20MP CMOS sensor. This camera not just takes photos but is also capable of recording 1080p full HD videos. The videos and pictures can then be stored in a micro SD card of up to 128GB. This is quite an impressive difference as compared to the 3.4MP camera from Fujifilm Instax Square Hybrid.

Just like its predecessors (The Polaroid Snap and Polaroid Snap Touch), the core of feature of these polaroid cameras is its printing ability. The device’s integrated printer uses ZINK Zero Ink Printing Technology. The old polaroid cameras have used fluid compound enclosed in a thin plastic sheet to form the image. With this Polaroid’s new trademark technology, implanted crystals that are tinted as well as heat are used to create stunning 3.5- by 4.25-inch print-outs that of course features the all-time favorite Polaroid Classic Boarder Logo.

Another cool add-on features of this device is the WiFi and Bluetooth capability of the camera which enables it to connect to a Smartphone (iOS or Android) and transforms it into an instant photo printer via the Polaroid App. Extra features in the App include its ability to add stickers and effects as well as and filters to enhance the image, plus the images takes less than a minute to print.

PROS

  • Small and slick design with choices of different colors
  • 20MP photos
  • 1080p HD video
  • Built in dual LED flash and Microphone
  • Digital Zoom enabled
  • 3.97″ LCD Viewfinder touchscreen
  • 3.5×4.25″ Border Prints in vibrant colors
  • Polaroid POP App to edit, filter, add extras and print the pictures from your smartphone or tablet
  • WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity
  • Micro SD Card enables saving capacity up to 128GB
  • Ink-free Zero Ink Printing technology
  • ZINK Paper has an adhesive back  so the photo can be used as a sticker as well

CONS

  • The material is made up of plastic and can easily get scratches – providing a case might be necessary to protect it.
  • The App is glitchy and hopefully Polaroid updates this problem soon.
  • For a 20MP camera, the print outs seem less than its quality but then it is much better than the 3.4MP from Fujifilm’s Square.

In comparison to other digital polaroid cameras in the market, this products seemed to have the better quality for a much cheaper price. For those who are just looking for a polaroid printer, the Polaroid ZIP is also a good option to directly print from Smartphones or Tablets.
