Polaroid PoGo Camera and Mobile Printer: instant print, everywhere you are, anytime!

People are still lamenting the passing of Polaroid Instant Film into history, but thanks to technology featured in its tiny Polaroid PoGo Instant Mobile Printer launched in 2008, the company is offering a new shoot-and-print option: the Polaroid CZA-05300B PoGo Instant Digital Camera.

The camera, which has a certain retro boxiness to it, is pretty big in comparison to most point-and-shoots with its camera specs. The 7-megapixel camera/printer measures 4.7 inches wide by 3 inches high by 1.3 inches deep and weighs 10 ounces–without paper, battery, or SD card. Keep in mind though: the original instant-print cameras didn’t fit in a coat pocket, but this one does!
There’s a 3-inch LCD on back and controls are simple; there’s even a 4X digital zoom that overcomes the lack of an optical zoom, due to space constraints.

The Polaroid CZA-05300B PoGo Instant Digital Camera uses Polaroid’s Zink (zero ink) 2-by-3-inch paper.

ZINK stands for Zero Ink – a new and simpler approach to printing where high quality, colorful, durable and affordable prints are magically created — all without a drop of ink. The ZINK Technology, invented by ZINK Imaging, encompasses both the ZINK Paper and the intelligence embedded in every ZINK-enabled device. Over 100 patents and patents pending were generated in the development of this breakthrough technology.

The heart of this new “ZINK” category of printing is the ZINK Paper. The patented ZINK Paper is an advanced composite material with embedded yellow, magenta and cyan dye crystals, activated with 200 million heat pulses, in 30 seconds, in a single pass. With 100 billion crystals in a 2 x 3-inch print, the paper is 100-percent inkless. A ZINK-enabled printer uses heat to activate and colorize these crystals. Because there is no ink, every ZINK-enabled device has the unique benefits of being small, simple, elegant, and eco-friendly.

Polaroid is leveraging the ZINK Technology to bring a new family of digital instant products to the marketplace. The Polaroid Digital Instant Mobile Photo Printer is the first ZINK-enabled device available.

The LCD simply pops up, you insert a deck of 10 sheets, and you’re ready to go.

Shoot something you want to print & share? Hit the Print button on back, pick the photo, and press OK.

In less than a minute you have a print, it’s that simple!
