    I got this as I am always on the go. I love the built in kitschy effects which actually has come in hand multiple times. You can easily print multiple copies and the effects are a nice option to have at hand for simple artistic fun.

    My favorite thing is that I can take pictures on another camera and just pop in the memory card into this Polaroid and BOOM! Now I have the ability to preview, add effects if I want and print. Portable printing studio ;)

    When I go on trips I constantly meet new people and it is nice to be able to keep digital files of everything and print out copies. Nothing like having the picture in your hand and it being a sticker is the cherry on top :)

    Negatives are mainly the latch is very easy to hit to open the door to the printer paper other than that the delay on focusing and taking the picture, but even using this at times as just a preview and print machine I am one happy customer.

    I purchased this camera as a gift for a friend, and was pretty satisfied. The camera does everything it's supposed to; however it could be better. The quality of the photos taken with the polaroid are fuzzy and not great, on the other hand the printing is great for such a small device. My friend and I started to take images on a canon T3 and simply put the sd card into the polaroid in order to print the photos. This technique resulted in great quality prints and led us to be very satisfied.

            I bought this camera through Photojojo and thought it would be a great addition to my camera collection because it's a wonderful idea to mix polaroid and digital. Within a month, the door that holds the polaroid film no longer stays shut, therefore the camera is useless. It's such a bummer because I really love the idea of this camera, however, I feel like it could've been executed much better.

            Maybe in future models it won't be made so cheaply?

              I wanted a fun camera that would give me an instant print and I don't like the fujifilm cameras so I went with this one. The camera is okay, I can't contron the white balance though. The manual says I can, and the option is there, however it is not adjustable. Lame. Also the screen is terrible. All of this would be forgivable if the prints actually came out like the ads say they do. The prints are ugly and green. I will try a second pack of paper, but I'm not hopefull.

                Overall, this is a specific purpose camera. It will not provide the best quality photos and the color / white balance isn't always ideal. Don't get me wrong, it s not a toy. But like its Ancestors, it is more about the ability to get an instant, tangible photo to share.

                I bought it for my 8 year old. She loves the fact that she can print photos and give them to her friends. And it is easy to use - and fun.

                  I love it cause I can take as many pics as I want, I can see them cause its a digital camera and I can print whichever I want, whenever I want.
                  Its big… but not that much, its great. Easy to use, fast to print, prints are stickers too… Im very happy with it.

                  If you want decent quality print...DO NOT buy this camera.
                  The camera is thicker than I expected, snap button just snaps..not hold for focusing...
                  Its just for kids....Its a TOY..

                  I gave the fun level of this camera a 5. When I bought this camera, I read all the honest reviews about its poor image quality. However, I had great fun with it. I had enjoyed making picture stickers of my newborn. Now I used it as an alternative label printer. I am an toy collector and text-base lebal is not good enough for me. With this camera I can make picture stickers that shows the content of each sorting box, that experience was very satisfying and awesome.

                      I was really happy with my new camera...When it came there was a scratch on the main screen but it was alright. I like how easy it is to print pics and add them to my Smash Book(like a scrapbook)....seriously...why haven't you bought it yet?

                        It's so cool to have digital pictures ready in a flash! (no pun intended) I'm waiting to give this camera as a gift for Christmas. I think it will be lots of fun!

                          I got this as I am always on the go. I love the built in kitschy effects which actually has come in hand multiple times. You can easily print multiple copies and the effects are a nice option to have at hand for simple artistic fun.

                          My favorite thing is that I can take pictures on another camera and just pop in the memory card into this Polaroid and BOOM! Now I have the ability to preview, add effects if I want and print. Portable printing studio ;)

                          When I go on trips I constantly meet new people and it is nice to be able to keep digital files of everything and print out copies. Nothing like having the picture in your hand and it being a sticker is the cherry on top :)

                          Negatives are mainly the latch is very easy to hit to open the door to the printer paper other than that the delay on focusing and taking the picture, but even using this at times as just a preview and print machine I am one happy customer.

                          I use it as secondary fun camera. I own dslr already. It is great when you are with friends or visit some one. This is cheap equipment, so do not expect great results. This is price you pay for great fun using it! Be careful with macro focus button, if it is accidentaly on, pics are really bad (out of focus).

                          What I love about this camera that it's relativly big in size, kinda like the cell phones
                          From the 80s, it is very basic, and the fact you can take a pic and print on the spot is super.... Specially if you are surrounded by kids...
                          The camera has many problems, such as: the metal ring around the lens fell before I even started to use it ( I love imperfections, so I don't care, but if you concider the price paid, it's not soo cool it's falling apart so fast ). a day later the rainbow Polaroid sticker started peeling off, I added a bit of tape on the edge to prevent it from disappearing... Trying to use the zoom in and zoon out buttons, didn't really function, I found myself pressing very hard to get it to zoom and it wouldn't go back, so I had to shut the camera on and off.... And all this has happened in less then a week of owning this new item... Also the battery dies very fast, so I highly recommend to get an extra one ( I didn't get, because the store did not have them in stock )...
                          with all the cosmetic and some mechanic problems that this camera has, I love it's simplicity, the random light reading , and the surprises make for very interesting pictures... I have tried using the flash, I hated it, and since then I only use available lighting, even low light somas out super...
                          I have been shooting also video, i have not yet transfers it to a big screen, but while shooting it seems very old school, like an old high 8 camera, very cool....
                          So if you are into low tec, and things that fall apart but still are super cool, this is a camera for you...

                            I bought this camera just in time for my birthday bash and, overall, it increased the night's fun by the 2nd power! The picture quality was above my expectations and my only complaint is; if it so happens a drink or any other object bumps the picture while it is printing it will cause some smearage or an inconvenient black spot or two. I recommend it for anyone susceptible to mysterious blackouts.
