A few years ago, Wallpaper remixed "Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell" to give us the ultimate party jam. Now Polaroid's combined point & shoot size with instant print magic to create the ultimate party camera.
What we've got here is the Polaroid Z2300, a digital camera that makes sticky-backed instant prints at the push of a button.
The Polaroid Z2300 is the smallest digital camera we've seen that delivers instant prints. It uses Premium ZINK paper that can't be accidentally exposed, costs less per shot than Polaroid film and has a peel-off sticky back . Print your favorite shots and save everything directly to the camera or your SD card.
Customize your 10-megapixel images: crop, add borders, or use the color filters for some serious par-tay. The Z2300 takes video too! All this comes in a sleek package the size of a point & shoot complete with the iconic Polaroid rainbow.
This tripod-mountable marvel is small enough to bring with you anywhere: wear it around your neck or toss it your tote bag and your party prep is complete. Just met a camera-loving cutie? Leave a photo to remember you by, and keep a digital one for yourself. Hide a LOL-worthy sticker in an unexpected place. Bring it with you to the dance floor to capture the ultimate party video.
The next time you're reviewing your party photos mid-shindig and someone says "That would make a great print," you can tell them "Just wait about thirty seconds."
How long does it take to print?
Get beautiful, full-color prints in approximately 30 seconds.
How much editing can I do?
Lots! Crop, add preset filters (sepia, black and white, and more), or add custom or preset borders, including the iconic Polaroid border. You can also print passport photos if you need them.
What paper can I use with this camera?
The Polaroid Z2300 only takes 2x3" Premium ZINK photo paper, which you can buy from this page, up on the right.
What's this ZINK paper all about?
It's inkless! That means the print is dry when it comes out, and you don't have to mess with ink refills. Embedded in the paper are cyan, yellow, and magenta crystals that activate when just the right amount of heat hits it (which is what the camera does!). The paper's also water and tear-proof, can't be exposed by accident, and has a peel-off sticky back for extra fun.
Where can I buy more 2x3" Premium ZINK paper?
You can find it right on this page, up on the right. Each pack comes with 50 exposures.
Can I save my photos to a memory card?
Yes! There's an onboard internal memory, but you can save your photos to an external SD card up to 32GB (sadly, you'll have to supply your own). After that, you can do whatever you want with them!
Do the prints fade? How long do they last?
The prints will stay vibrant for years and years -- the same amount of time a print from the photo lab will last (that's about 16+ years).
