    I own several Polaroid cameras, both old and new, including a Z2300 which uses the same Zink paper the Snap uses. I bought the Snap so that anyone could pick it up and use it - it is a simple camera. You must know how to use a viewfinder as it does not have a LCD screen. Every camera used to have a viewfinder, but if you've never used a camera viewfinder you're gonna need to practice. with the Snap. Get the micro SD card, install it, and shoot several exposures without putting Zink paper in the camera. Then check your results by downloading the saved images to your computer. Once you get comfortable with the viewfinder, put some Zink paper in and shoot away. Oh - the camera does not come with Zink paper nor an SD card so be sure to get those when purchasing the camera. Know that the pictures are not large. Know that this is a fun camera and not a professional model. Know that the directions are online and not included with the camera. Know that there is a software update that you might have to install and that there may be more update installs in the future. (these help your camera to work better). I am very critical of pictures and I am giving this camera a "B+" grade. If you practice, you'll get good results and be able to tell others how to hold it when they use the camera. It's simple and the results are fun. Don't complain about the cost of the Zink paper. If you were to take digital pictures and print them out at home you'd be spending just as much - if not more - for the photo paper and the printer's ink cartridges. Like I said - practice with out the paper in the camera and check out your shots on your computer. So get this camera. Get Zink paper and an SD card. Charge up the camera and start enjoying the world of Polaroid.

    Broke right away

    I bought this camera, and a bunch of film, in December to take on a month long trip to Africa that week, I took two pictures before I left, it worked fine. In Africa I took four shots, the camera stopped working, wouldn't shut off, so I had to leave it running to drain the battery. I powered up the camera again and took four more pictures, once again the camera broke. When I returned home Polaroid tech and supervisors told me that there were a batch of Snap cameras that went out with out the needed upgrades and mine use one of them. I was told I'd have to go get a micro film chip to upgrade my camera to make it work. I suggested to Polaroid that since I bought the camera in good faith that it worked, doesn't it make sense for them to send me the chip? I was told that no chip came with the camera I bought and that it was up to me to go out and get one, but they'd send me some film, I have film, a lot of it. It's not that I can't drive a half an hour away to Target to get the needed chip or have Amazon send me one, as the supervisor suggested, it's the fact that I bought a new camera, I expected it to work, I carried it around the world for a month in hopes of giving out pictures to people who don't have access to printed pictures and Polaroid didn't have the curtesy to stand behind their product and say...let us fix this for you, we'll send you a micro chip to upgrade your camera. I will buy the chip that I was told I need, so I can see if that fixes this camera, but I sure can't recommend anyone buy anything from Polaroid, especially this Snap camera.

    Poorly Designed

    This should be a fun product but is poorly designed. 1. the viewfinder is horrible. Extremely hard to know if you have the thing your trying to photograph correctly lined up in the centre of the photo or not. 2. the colour changing button is in the wrong place. Just where you want to hold the camera so you end up pressing it by mistake or holding the camera awkwardly. 3. there are no instructions and those you get online are horrible, very hard to work out how to change from one photo to several per print. 4. the flash is too small and weak so poor colour reproduction inside. 5. no idea of how many prints are left. 6. I have found on my camera the colour reproduction is very poor. I do love the fact that the pictures can be stuck on things and that is cool and I love the instant nature of it but a big improvement in design needs to happen. Wish I had spent more and gone for the one with the digital screen that I could see the pictures before printing and thus saved money by not printing the images that were not lined up properly. Don't bother with this camera, even for fun. spend a bit more and get one you can review the pictures before printing.

    Disappointing for a former Polaroid fan

    Hopefully my opinion will change once I have a properly functioning unit, but for now I am very disappointed in this Polaroid product. Even after reading reviews, downloading manuals and Firmware updates and watching YouTube videos, I can not get my camera to work correctly. The few pictures that did make their way out of the camera were very poor quality, nothing like the pics that are displayed on advertising media. I keep getting all flashing red lights on the back of the camera, and no picture or film comes out. I will be returning this item for replacement, hoping that this is a defective unit. Buyers should be advised that there are NO real instructions in the box with the camera, so you need to go to the website to download and read the manual to know what all the lights mean, how to properly load the paper, and how the features like photo color and border options work. All that was in the box I purchased was a card with a few pictures. When trying to download Firmware updates and following the instructions, the file is unable to be unzipped as the file extension is not recognized. This was also frustrating. As someone who grew up with the original Polaroid cameras, I was expecting a much better product and product support. I would be willing to revise my review if a new camera actually works, but the lack of instructions should be noted by potential buyers. That being said, the online manual, once you find it, is informative, as well as the nice folks on YouTube that bothered to help out confused consumers like myself!

    I bought this camera (at a different store) to take pictures of Trick of Treaters at a outside display on Halloween night 2016. Because the Polaroid film was half the cost of the 'other' instant film, we went with it. It comes with no instructions except a little card with a couple of images of how to load the film. The trial run of the first pack of film went fine. The blue 'starter' card printed and we then printed 10 pictures. . However, when we began to take actual pictures with our display, the blue card printed out and then only one picture would print out. I had to reload the blue card for each and every picture.that we took. Extremely time consuming to wait for the blue card to print each time and then the actual picture. Many people left without getting their picture taken or collecting their complimentary mini-print. The only saving grace was that it captures the pictures digitally on an sd card (not included), so we were able to post the pictures on Facebook for them to download. Based on my one experience, I do not recommend this camera.

    How Awful, Just Awful!

    First of all, Let me start of saying that I was happy and excited to get this camera, and looked forward to taking shots with it, Unfortunately, it turned out to be the worst camera I have ever bought! One, I used the usb cord that came with it and hooked it up to the camera, which was hard to stick in, and take out! I had to wiggle the wire to get it to come out of the camera when I wanted to unplug it! That shouldn't be! When I hooked the camera to my Lenovo laptop computer it said DRIVE UNAVAILABLE! WHAT???? I checked all drives did updates but everything was up to date! I called polaroid support and they couldn't help just said check firmware?? I can't even view my pictures or know if the shot was taken of my dog. It was just horrible! Don't buy this! Customer Service sucks of the Polaroid Company and do not help!!! So go buy a better camera!!! Honestly, I bought a different camera and am much happier with it the Polaroid One Step 2!! Only one was in stock left at the store and I bought it, and love it! But I won't be contacting Polaroid for help I will just ask online and watch YouTube videos because they are way helpful than the company!

    Good camera for fun not great quality

    Upon the reviews of many polaroids i thought this one would be the best... but its not all that great. The color quality is super grainy and not accurate when it prints. Know that if there is not good lighting you will not have a good picture and the flash is automatic so you cant turn it on. I had seen other colors I know its supposed to print and look vintage but other cameras nail it and this one not at all. Black and white will pretty much be almost gray in dominance, the color is too much saturation and reds, the greens and yellows is pretty much a yellow hue dominance. Not a balance really. Second there wasn’t a color variety in store pretty much only the white one was available. Third last but not list doesn’t include film and film itself is expensive. You will go thru a box of 100 in like a day depending and 50% of those will not come out as you expect them.

    I shouldn’t have purchased this. I wanted the Fuji instant camera and Best Buy was sold out (clearly for a reason), so I purchased this (which costs more). It strives to have more capabilities like able to take a micro sd and different color filters but they don’t make up for the picture quality. Although the look of the picture is going for vintage, The tones are very dark and unpredictable when the flash will activate. It does have a timer which came in handy a few times. Selecting the border option on the camera is pretty sucky because your actual picture gets smaller on an already small photo paper along with the border not looking very authentic. I just use it during my birthday party and created a collage which came out to be pretty cool, but I prefer the Fiji instant print cameras much more.
