Kodak unveils the Printomatic: A point-and-shoot 'instant print' camera
There's a new instant camera in town. Revealed by Kodak earlier today, the Printomatic is a point-and-shoot 'instant print' digital camera: meaning the photos it captures with its 10MP sensor are instantly printed out of the side of the camera Polaroid-style while you go on shooting.
Kodak is calling it "the ideal all-in-one solution for capturing and sharing vibrant prints instantly."
To call the Printomatic a 'no-frills' camera is almost an understatement. Available in Gray or Yellow for just $70, the 10MP shooter comes with a built-in Li-ion battery, flash, low-battery indicator, print indicator, microSD card slot, and two pictures modes: vibrant color or black & white. In other words, it's as close to fully automatic as you're going to get.
The appeal of the camera, at least according to Kodak, is in its simplicity.
“The KODAK PRINTOMATIC is a contemporary camera with a wonderful balance of digital and analog technology,” Steven Overman, Kodak’s Chief Marketing Officer, said in a statement. “It’s an accessible device for anybody who wants to create a lasting memory in a tangible, colorful way.”
Each photo is printed at 2x3-inches on Kodak's ZINK (stands for "Zero Ink") Photo Paper, which means it comes out of the camera water-resistant, tear resistant and adhesive-backed.
The camera will be available online and in stores starting "late September" for $70, and comes with a 10-pack of ZINK Photo Paper included. ZINK refills are available online in 20 and 50 packs for $9 and $20, respectively. To learn more about the Printomatic, head over to the Kodak website.
