    I love instant photography, so I was delighted when I received this as a gift. I snapped a few photos and, after selecting the ones I wanted for my photo album, printed them. I like that, by default, the photos come out borderless. It is fairly simple to add borders, just a few button clicks. Actually, this camera is all-around a very easy thing to manipulate. The photos come out in less than a minute, clear and vibrant, but not flawless. If you want perfection, do not get this camera! I was surprised how actions such as my daughter splashing water were caught so nicely. The only downside to this camera is the price of film, but twenty dollars for thirty sheets seems like a small price to pay for the convenience of snap and print photography.

    Polaroid is back with a BANG! The new Polaroid Z340 Instant Camera is now available and it's big, cute, packed with features, and it's expensive.I was truly excited to get the new Polaroid Z340 camera because I love photography and I always wanted to print my images on location and on the spot.What I like about Polaroid Z340 is the fact it will take pictures in low light and it won't hunt for the subject or whatever you are shooting. I like the size and the style of the camera. It's not heavy with the battery and paper installed. Another cool feature is it has a slot for an SD card which you can load onto your computer and transmit all the images to Facebook or to any social network sites. You don't have to print the images after taking a picture. You can load all the images to the SD and then send all the images to [@]. You can get 100 (4x6) print out of all of your images for only $15. Yippee! This camera is very cool and it might be for those who need to take pictures and print them on the spot like the insurance company, a police officer, or any blogger that love to take quick photos of things.HOWEVER, the Polaroid is back with a bang and a BANG on your wallet. The price for this camera is [$]. I know this camera is not for everyone and personally at first, I really wanted to like it. However, it fell short with the "toy-like" feel and poor menu selections for this price point. It's totally overpriced and I will only pay $ 99 to $ 149 for this camera. What I don't like about the Polaroid Z340 Instant Digital Camera is that you have to put it around your neck to balance it with two hands. If you use the hand strap, you have to avoid hitting the shutter buttons or other switches. There isn't any place to rest your hands but against the buttons which will change the camera settings. The battery life is REALLY, REALLY, and REALLY bad. You can only take 75 pictures or print 25 photos before the battery goes dead. UCK! If you had a point and shoot or a smart-phone, you can take pictures all night, never miss a shot, hide it in your pocket, make a phone call, text a friend or two, and you won't have to recharge until the event is over. If you need to print with the point and shoot, these days, there are wireless printers you can run all night and have the images printout automatically. If you use the Polaroid Z340 at events or at parties, you will need to buy a backup rechargeable batteries ($25 each. If you are printing all night, you would need at least 2 packs of the Zink "3x4" paper which is also expensive ($ 20 for 30 sheets). This is totally disappointing since [@]and other stores sell 100 sheets of 4x6 for about $ 13 bucks or if you go to your local [@], each 4x6 is only $.15 for 100 print outs. Most ink jet photo printers start at $40 and $150 (with ink) and you can print other things beside pictures. The printing feature on the Polaroid Z340 won't replace your original printer and I am quite sure we all know that. You have to be very wise on what you are printing on the Polaroid Z340. The quality of the print is not to my liking (BAD hue and saturation) and that's probably because I am a photographer. I think many of the pocket point and shoot camera and Smart-phones does a better job capturing and printing than this Polaroid Z340 at 14 mega pixel in natural or low light.As much as I like and don't like this Polaroid Z340, it's a cute camera for those who are in dire need of a print out. This camera is not worth [$] maybe $99 to $149. You can get a nice point and shoot and inkjet printer for less than[$] and won't regret it. Trust me. I didn't mention anything about the DSLR camera because it won't be a fair review. The DSLR are made for events, parties, or just taking pictures for the fun-of-it! They are big and small DSLR with less megapixel and the printout is 100% good. If you already purchased this camera, please note, after Christmas the price will drop dramatically. Please hold on to your receipt. You will get reimburse about $50 to $100 (to buy more expensive Zink no Ink "3x4" sheets). As for me, I will return the Polaroid Z340 because I feel it's not there yet for this price. We are now going into 2012 and Polaroid have to be more creative (speed, quality of image, and features) at this price point.

          This is a fantastic product from Polaroid! I use the camera as a Point & Shoot and usually print the photographs on site for my clients and loved ones.
          A dozen professional photographers have approached me (since early November 2012) and all have looked it over and purchased the camera and Zink paper for prints!
          Please be patient when it prints on the colorless paper. It is a beautiful print.
          There is no light for the status of the battery while it charges but it does fully charge quite quickly.

          Comments about Polaroid Z340 Instant Digital Camera:

          I took my new camera to a third world country where children had never seen their photo. It was so fun to be able to give the kids and families pictures of themselves in under 60 seconds (though that can be a long time when one is anxious!) Yes, the battery is short-lived but I knew that ahead of time from reading reviews and went prepared with extras. Now I use the camera when I'm with my own young grandchildren and they love it too!
          This digital polaroid is so advanced compared to the old style that printed every picture taken, so I can't complain about any part of it. :)

            Comments about Polaroid Z340 Instant Digital Camera:

            This isn't a serious camera and I don't think Polaroid designed it as such......it's a great throwback to the time of instant film and it does it's job well. The camera actually takes decent stills but the prints aren't the best in colors.....colors are always off a small bit, but nothing horrific. This is best suited for the shooter who wants instant photos and doesn't mind the lower image quality. It does shoot to SD cards and you don;t have to print every shot, so you can use it as a traditional digital camera and only print those shots you wish to. It also takes video which was a surprise.My daughter loves it but I use DSLR's and I can see the lower IQ but if that's not an issue this camera can be perfect.The camera uses no ink but instead uses the paper which must have some built-in ink system that comes thru when processed....so I guess Zink means ZeroInk which makes sense.My daughter's unit stopped printing and the images were coming out white.....we figured the batteries might be running low and after a full charge it started printing again- so keep a full charge when printing.I recommend it to someone who is looking for just this sort of device- but if you're looking for great image quality- pass on this and get a traditional digital camera.

Some say that the paper jams after a few photos and that the menu's are horrible to navigate etc. I have not experienced any issues with paper jams and, while the menus are a touch clunky, I haven't had any issue navigating through the options or finding them later. This may be due to the fact that I use a Canon 5D Mark II as my primary camera and I'm used to scrolling through many options, but I don't think anyone will have too much trouble figuring things out.

              The performance in low light isn't the greatest and you'll need to use the flash most of the time. I find that the delay between pushing the trigger and the time of capture is a bit long but one really must manage their expectations when purchasing this camera. If you're looking for a touch of nostalgia with a dash of novelty, this camera is great. Being able to choose what pictures you print gives it that modern touch we can all appreciate as well. No money wasted on unwanted prints or shots that failed to come out as expected. My one qualm is the occasional lines that show up in the prints. Not sure if this is due to the age/quality of the ZINC paper or the printer itself...

              If you come at this camera hoping for crisp edges and perfect color, you'll be somewhat disappointed. If you are looking to have fun and take some photos that will have a bit of a vintage feel and get the immediate gratification of a print in your hand, then you'll be happy with the Z340.

              Get it, enjoy it, take it to parties and family gatherings. Everyone will be smiling and thrilled to take home a little token photo to remember the evening.

                Wanted to use this camera for tradeshow and capture moments of attendees visiting our booth and winning prizes ... an instant gratification kind of thing.

                The Polaroid Z340 is pretty easy to use ... however inkless paper that prints within the camera takes a while to print ... maybe 45 - 60 seconds. Secondly, the color is old school ... looking faded like the original Polaroid produced two decades ago.

                Pros: Great for some applications, instant gratification.

                Cons: A little pricey if you are expecting something more ... and certainly not what you might expect from a digital camera of similar cost.

                Advice? Get it if you can afford a second/third camera for certain applications. Not for everyday use.

                We generally used for traditional shoot and print type scenarios but it's digital camera and video camera functions are all great to have in one spot. It's a little bulky, so not recommended for day to day / travel usage, but GREAT for events, parties, etc.

                      Lots of fun at parties. You can do some basic photo editing on the digital screen before printing out the picture. The kids love to see the instant results. You can also print using the traditional method so you don't waste any of the Polaroid film paper.

                            I love instant photography, so I was delighted when I received this as a gift. I snapped a few photos and, after selecting the ones I wanted for my photo album, printed them. I like that, by default, the photos come out borderless. It is fairly simple to add borders, just a few button clicks. Actually, this camera is all-around a very easy thing to manipulate. The photos come out in less than a minute, clear and vibrant, but not flawless. If you want perfection, do not get this camera! I was surprised how actions such as my daughter splashing water were caught so nicely. The only downside to this camera is the price of film, but twenty dollars for thirty sheets seems like a small price to pay for the convenience of snap and print photography.

                            Polaroid is back with a BANG! The new Polaroid Z340 Instant Camera is now available and it's big, cute, packed with features, and it's expensive.I was truly excited to get the new Polaroid Z340 camera because I love photography and I always wanted to print my images on location and on the spot.What I like about Polaroid Z340 is the fact it will take pictures in low light and it won't hunt for the subject or whatever you are shooting. I like the size and the style of the camera. It's not heavy with the battery and paper installed. Another cool feature is it has a slot for an SD card which you can load onto your computer and transmit all the images to Facebook or to any social network sites. You don't have to print the images after taking a picture. You can load all the images to the SD and then send all the images to [@]. You can get 100 (4x6) print out of all of your images for only $15. Yippee! This camera is very cool and it might be for those who need to take pictures and print them on the spot like the insurance company, a police officer, or any blogger that love to take quick photos of things.HOWEVER, the Polaroid is back with a bang and a BANG on your wallet. The price for this camera is [$]. I know this camera is not for everyone and personally at first, I really wanted to like it. However, it fell short with the "toy-like" feel and poor menu selections for this price point. It's totally overpriced and I will only pay $ 99 to $ 149 for this camera. What I don't like about the Polaroid Z340 Instant Digital Camera is that you have to put it around your neck to balance it with two hands. If you use the hand strap, you have to avoid hitting the shutter buttons or other switches. There isn't any place to rest your hands but against the buttons which will change the camera settings. The battery life is REALLY, REALLY, and REALLY bad. You can only take 75 pictures or print 25 photos before the battery goes dead. UCK! If you had a point and shoot or a smart-phone, you can take pictures all night, never miss a shot, hide it in your pocket, make a phone call, text a friend or two, and you won't have to recharge until the event is over. If you need to print with the point and shoot, these days, there are wireless printers you can run all night and have the images printout automatically. If you use the Polaroid Z340 at events or at parties, you will need to buy a backup rechargeable batteries ($25 each. If you are printing all night, you would need at least 2 packs of the Zink "3x4" paper which is also expensive ($ 20 for 30 sheets). This is totally disappointing since [@]and other stores sell 100 sheets of 4x6 for about $ 13 bucks or if you go to your local [@], each 4x6 is only $.15 for 100 print outs. Most ink jet photo printers start at $40 and $150 (with ink) and you can print other things beside pictures. The printing feature on the Polaroid Z340 won't replace your original printer and I am quite sure we all know that. You have to be very wise on what you are printing on the Polaroid Z340. The quality of the print is not to my liking (BAD hue and saturation) and that's probably because I am a photographer. I think many of the pocket point and shoot camera and Smart-phones does a better job capturing and printing than this Polaroid Z340 at 14 mega pixel in natural or low light.As much as I like and don't like this Polaroid Z340, it's a cute camera for those who are in dire need of a print out. This camera is not worth [$] maybe $99 to $149. You can get a nice point and shoot and inkjet printer for less than[$] and won't regret it. Trust me. I didn't mention anything about the DSLR camera because it won't be a fair review. The DSLR are made for events, parties, or just taking pictures for the fun-of-it! They are big and small DSLR with less megapixel and the printout is 100% good. If you already purchased this camera, please note, after Christmas the price will drop dramatically. Please hold on to your receipt. You will get reimburse about $50 to $100 (to buy more expensive Zink no Ink "3x4" sheets). As for me, I will return the Polaroid Z340 because I feel it's not there yet for this price. We are now going into 2012 and Polaroid have to be more creative (speed, quality of image, and features) at this price point.

                              Comments about Polaroid Z340 Instant Digital Camera:

                              I love the new polaroid camera I bought, it is excellent! The greatest thing about receiving my camera was the speedy delivery. I had ordered this product in a shop in Australia but a month later no camera. I cancelled my order and ordered through B&H, I could not believe how quick it was delivered and all in perfect condition. The camera takes perfect photos and I can't wait to wrap it for my daughter's Christmas present. In the mean time I am sneaking around taking instant pics!!!! I will order through B&H everytime and I have told many people about this company. ♥
