Polaroid Zip Photoprinter

 

The Polaroid Zip Photoprinter can be a highly convenient companion for a camera phone, ready to print wallet-size photos in less than 45 seconds each.

Simple setup. Easy wireless printing from Apple and Android mobile devices. Supports NFC and Bluetooth.

Colors are a little dark in terms of a hue-saturation-brightness color model.

If you want a portable photo printer to use with your phone or tablet, be sure to take a look at the Fujifilm SP-1 and the VuPoint IPWF-P01-VP, as well as the Polaroid Zip Photoprinter. The VuPoint Solutions and Fujifilm models both deliver better...

Polaroid Zip Mobile Printer White

 

Similar to the Fujifilm Instax Share SP-1 , the Zip mobile printer, which sells for $129.99 (about £110 or AU$170), connects to your iOS or Android device via Bluetooth and, using a free app, turns photos from your phone or tablet into small, 2x3-inch...

The Polaroid Zip printer is an inexpensive pocketable wireless photo printer that turns your smartphone pictures into full-color 2x3-inch prints. Simple to set up and use, it doesn't require any consumables beyond Polaroid's Zink paper.

Prints are small and cost about 25 cents each (£0.15, AU$1). The print quality is OK all things considered, but don't expect inkjet or dye-sub printer quality. Built-in rechargeable battery lasts for just 25 prints.

​Simple and fun to use, the Polaroid Zip is a great little accessory for freeing your photos from your smartphone.

Polaroid Zip Review: Portable Photo Printer Produces Blah Prints

 

Get the Polaroid Zip if you absolutely need a compact photo printer that you can carry around with you. Otherwise, consider Canon's Selphy CP1200, which produces better-looking prints.

Extremely portable ; No need to buy ink cartridges ; Rechargeable battery

Mediocre prints ; Clunky and buggy app

The Polaroid Zip is a very portable photo printer that lets you print out photos when you're on the go, but the resulting prints won't wow you.

Review: Polaroid Zip portable printer

 

Earlier this year, Polaroid unveiled its pocket-sized Zip (Zink Instant Photoprinter) designed for linking to a smartphone to crank out full-color images on demand. Gizmag recently had a chance to put one through its paces as Polaroid goes back to its...

The rise of the small digital camera has changed all that. Look around an average room and it isn't unusual to pick out at least half a dozen cameras set in computer monitors, mobile phones, and other devices. In addition, the lack of film means that...

Polaroid Zip Instant Photoprinter prints stickers from your phone [REVIEW]

 

Polaroid's $130 Zip Instant Photoprinter prints up your smartphone pics in 2- x 3-inch stickers.

Sleek, lightweight design ; Cheap ZINK sticker paper ; Works with iOS and Android ; Lots of funky frames, emoji and images to overlay on pics

Occasional connectivity issues ; Weak battery

The Polaroid Zip Instant Photoprinter is a little pricey at $130, but damn it if it's not a whole lot of fun to print your smartphone pics.
