Instant Prints with Your Digital Camera

Can’t wait for Polaroid to make its grand comeback this year? You can use your current camera like a digital Polaroid camera with the Portable Photo Printer by Pandigital, announced at the end of last year. It uses Zero Ink (ZINK) technology for ink-less, instant 4×6 printing, and is the first ZINK printer at this print size. The ZINK paper used by the printer has dye crystals embedded inside the paper itself, and is activated by the printer using heat.

You won’t need a computer to use the printer, as the memory card slots, LCD screen, USB ports, and controls are all located on the printer itself. The printer has an MSRP of $149.99, but is usually found online bundled with paper packs for less.

    Brilliance! I'll be buying one as soon as I can. I love my current portable HP for 4×6 prints but ZINK is one of the most promising technologies to arrive for many years.

    Polariad already made a comeback? The 'Pogo' printer, which came out earlier last year and also uses Zink technology… I recently purchases one and it pretty decent, quality prints but battery life could be better. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Polaroid-Digital-Photo-
