The Polaroid Z2300 is a new instant digital cameras that spits out 2″ x 3″ prints directly from the camera using Polaroid’s ZINK paper. The Z2300 features a 10MP sensor and a 3-inch LCD.

Even the paper has come down in price with 50 packs at $24.99 and 30 packs at $14.99. The camera itself retails for $159.99 and is expected to ship August 15, 2012. Check availability in the Polaroid store and B&H Photo.
