Polaroid launches Z2300 'instant' digital camera with built-in printer
A licensee of the Polaroid brand name has created the Z2300 Instant Digital Camera - a compact camera with built-in Zink printer. The Z2300 produces 2x3" prints using the Zink 'zero ink' system that uses heat to control the development of full-colored images from layers of dye encapsulated in specially prepared paper. No details of sensor size or lens are available for the Z2300 but it appears not to offer a zoom, so it might be best thought of as a Zink printer with 10MP phone camera built in.
The Z2300 is distinguished from the existing, larger Z340 model by its use of the smaller 2x3" format, rather than 3x4". Like the Z340, the Z2300 can leave white borders around the image to imitate a classic Polaroid print. The 2x3" Zink paper in the Z2300 will be available at a cost of around $15/£10 for 30 sheets. Adhesive-backed paper is also available.

Ever since the introduction of the Polaroid Land Camera in1948, people around the world have enjoyed the magic of Polaroid instant photography. Polaroid continues instant sharing in the 21st century with the Polaroid Z2300 camera which allows the user to take and instantly share pictures digitally and in print.
“Polaroid invented instant photography, and for the past 75 years the brand has been synonymous with instant gratification, ease-of-use and fun,” said Graeme Chapman, MD of Polaroid’s sole UK imaging licensee C&A Marketing. “The Z2300 represents the next step in the evolution of that proud tradition and it was designed to fully integrate the classic Polaroid instant photography experience into today’s digital, social world. Portability, creative expression and the ability to share your most memorable moments in digital or print form all come standard in the Polaroid Z2300 camera’s compact body.”
The Polaroid Z2300 instant digital camera has a suggested retail price of £129.99 and will be available in August from Dixons, ASDA, Harrods, Selfridges, Digital Depot and all good photographic stores. The camera can be pre-ordered from www.polaroid.co.uk until the end of July.
