Impossible Project has launched a Kickstarter campaign to build an instant Polaroid printer for your iPhone that prints images directly from your iPhone’s screen.
The design is rather straightforward. Pull up an image on your iPhone. Place the iPhone face down on the Impossible Instant Lab and press the shutter button on the Instant Lab. Then, your print ejects from the Instant Lab.
Check out the overview in the Kickstarter project video below. [click to continue…]
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.

The Polaroid SC1630 is a new Android-based camera that was unveiled at CES 2012. I had a chance to check it out up close and get a little taste of its performance.
I found it more than a little ironic that Polaroid would produce a camera that looks and feels like a phone while other manufacturers are fighting to differentiate the point and shoot camera from smart phones.
Even more intriguing is the fact that the Polaroid SC1630 offers a SIM-card slot, along with a speaker and mic that make it possible to use it as a phone. [click to continue…]
