      Comments about Polaroid Grey Label GL10 Instant Mobile Printer:

      I purchased this printer and almost 300 sheets of paper to take on a mission trip to a children's home in Honduras. The look on a child's face when the little 3x4 print comes out, just after you've taken it, is alone worth the price. One day the power was out, so I was glad to have battery power. Out of those prints, I only had issues with one piece of paper not loading properly, and it may have been my fault. Otherwise, it worked flawlessly. I actually think the battery will print more than the capacity listed in the specs. I am sure I printed more than 35 sheets on the battery, but didn't count. Now, don't expect color corrected prints. There is a slight red hue to the prints, but it is not a big deal. Also, don't go putting the prints in your pocket. I did that to one and the colors all faded and the protective coating started coming off. Nevertheless, it can do something that no other printer can do!

      Comments about Polaroid Grey Label GL10 Instant Mobile Printer:

      I purchased this printer for a small project and did not know what to expect as the information on the polaroid site as well as on many other review sites is rather vague.

      The printer itself has a decent build quality and a good feel to it, near the same feel as the rubber grip on a DSLR camera. As for the picture quality it is fairly good though do not expect the same quality as you would get from printing a picture out at your local photo store as this is truely more of a gadget then anything, its something that you will find entertaining and something that will possibly bring people closer as it catchs the curiosity of people around you or people that see it in action.

      to elaborate a bit on the reason I said the photo quality was fair is that the zink paper is fairly limited in what it can do or the colors it can produce. Any black and white image will not come out black but rather a purplish tint.

      Over all its interesting, if you have the money to spend on it and some paper go for it, if you want low cost printing then I suggest you keep printing your prints at a store.

      *** polaroid needs to make a manual for this ***

      Comments about Polaroid Grey Label GL10 Instant Mobile Printer:

      I wanted to print pictures from my iPhone/camera/computer, without having to go somewhere and get it done. So I ordered this thing. First of all, it took me FOREVER to find the application to download. Everything kept saying it was on the Polaroid site. So finally on some random guys blog he told where it was. It was on Polaroid's site but it was hidden very well. So I got that downloaded, then the thing wouldn't connect. My computer said it was connected but the application I downloaded said that it wasn't. I sent this thing I spend $150 for back, and spent $50 on a printer at [@]that prints any size/kind of paper, scans, is wireless, can print wirelessly straight from iPhone, for $100 less. I still fail to see the point in this thing.

        It is light weight and soildly built. It has the option of template or no border. The template border is like the old polaroid style, but you loose that part of the image. The full image has no border. It accepts only JPG's, so shoot Raw and JPG's both if your camera has the option. Print images direct from your camera via BridgePix or thru an PC app.I had to email Polaroid to find it on their site. Great for events or parties when people want instant gratification. Prints are good quality snaps, not for competition. :)

        Comments about Polaroid Grey Label GL10 Instant Mobile Printer:

        I purchased this product as I have been a compulsive polaroid consumer for almost 30 years and I figured this could give similar stimulation and satisfaction for those quick print needs. I was correct. A bit disappointed the unit is not compatible with a iPhone, but, I have had no problem using the new GL10 app for Mac which makes the unit a DREAM. I am going to give this as a gift in the future to various age groups. It is TERRIFIC.

        Comments about Polaroid Grey Label GL10 Instant Mobile Printer:

        I bought this printer because I wanted a small compact printer for a rotating snapshot wall in my studio office. Worked great, prints are just small enough. Don't expect professional studio quality prints, but it's Instant Polaroid and that's part of the appeal! Use it all the time. I give it four stars because the nice bluetooth feature doesn't work with my mac. I have to use a USB cable that wasn't included. Could be a nice update!

        Comments about Polaroid Grey Label GL10 Instant Mobile Printer:

        The products is great to print pictures. I love that I do not have to spend a fortune on ink and I only have to purchase the paper, which is not expensive. I also love that it just prints via bluetooth through my MacBookPro. It prints quickly and its very simple to use. It is a great product. It does not print big pictures but they are a decent size.
        The thing that I do not like about this product is that I specifically bought it because it works throughout bluetooth connection on a mobile device but it does not have compatibility with iPhone (no matter what generation). It has an android app but that about about it. If it didn't sync with my computer I would have returned it for a full refund. I am hoping they will change this.
