Polaroid Z2300 Instant Digital Camera

Polaroid Z2300

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.

Frankly, I find these Polaroid cameras and printers a lot of fun – even if they do get a little pricey on the printing side of things.  I’ve used the Polaroid GL10 printer quite a bit and really like it for fun projects.  As a casual camera, the Z2300 looks like it could strike the right chords.

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.
