Polaroid PoGo(TM) Instant Digital Camera

If you miss the Polaroid of yesteryear where the picture you took was instantly printed out, you are back in luck. Polaroid's new digital camera, the PoGo Instant Digital Camera. It is the first digital camera-printer combination in the United States and Europe, portable enough to take anywhere according to Polaroid's press release. The printer uses ZINK technology which stands for Zero Ink. The printer works by heating special paper which activates the heat sensitive crystals in the paper. That means you do not have to worry about running out of ink in the printer nor deal with the hassle of refills. The pictures printed will be two inches by three inches. The camera itself weights ten ounces and measures 4.7 inches by three inches. No mention of other camera specifics such as the megapixel count, focal lengths, or zoom. Though, you do not need many megapixels to print a clear 2x3 inch photo. The suggested retail price is $199.

"Polaroid announces the launch of the Polaroid PoGo(TM) Instant Digital Camera, the first digital camera and instant printer combination available in the U.S. and Europe that is portable enough to take anywhere. With the push of a button, consumers can select from among the digital photos on the camera, crop or edit them and in less than 60 seconds, print full-color, 2x3-inch prints -- all with a single device.
ZINK(TM) Zero Ink(TM) is an ink-free printing technology which replaces ink cartridges or ribbons with ZINK Photo Paper(TM) -- a composite material that has embedded, heat-activated dye crystals. Before printing, ZINK Photo Paper(TM) appears white like regular photo paper. Once the pictures are printed, they are immediately dry to the touch, durable and smudge and water resistant.

The Polaroid PoGo(TM) Instant Digital Camera offers a full-feature digital camera with 100 percent inkless printing, 2x3-inch sticky-backed photos with or without fun borders and the advantage of reviewing the captured photos on a three-inch color LCD screen before printing. The instant digital camera measures 4.7-inches wide by 3-inches tall and weighs only 10 ounces.
