Polaroid P-500 review: Polaroid P-500


The Polaroid P-500 Digital Photo Printer merges both old and new technology to deliver the type of instant prints we all know and love. Although it doesn't have the sophistication, range of controls, or image size of some other standalone digital...

Fast print-to-print time; simple operation; powered by the film pack's internal battery.

The small, 2-by-3-inch print size may be a bit too tiny for some; indexing prints is not always easy.

Lightweight and always juiced up, this portable printer is a take-me-along, must-have accessory that's fun and easy to use.

Product Specifications

Polaroid P-500 printer is the simplest way ever to create prints directly from your digital camera. It is the first truly mobile photo printer! The P-500 allows you to print photographs anywhere, anytime without a computer. Simply insert a CompactFlash or SmartMedia card (with included adapter) directly into the printer, choose only the image or images you want to print, and push a button for instant full color prints in about 20 seconds. The new Polaroid P-500 printer uses Polaroid Type 500 instant film - therefore there is no need to buy batteries or use an external power cord. The P-500 automatically resizes JPEG files from any brand of digital camera to create great prints. The P-500 even supports DPOF image file formats.
