    Nice!

    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.

    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.

    Cheaply Made

    Camera froze after I started it up. Blinked, beeped, wouldn't let me shut it off. Called Polaroid CS and they were useless. Taking this back for a refund. Also, camera does not come with a wall charger, only a USB cord. View finder was distorted and blurry. Dumbed down version of its original predecessor.

    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.

    Good Idea , But

    Bought this camera not for it's ability for great pictures or instant photos but rather for it's simple idea of digital storage and cool little picture. Bought for my elder parents which after four pictures , stopped working. Power stays on and no way to shut off. Just beeps. As mentioned there are no instructions. I will try for new one providing they replace paper as well. Great idea , no support.

    Pictures turn out pretty good on this polariod camera, and it is nice to be able to save photos to a mico sd card so you can also share or save the photo for later.

    Cool, basic little camera

    This is quite an amazing little camera, it takes great pictures, which are about 10 megapixels when saved to the optional sd card. The pictures that come out of the printer are actually 5 or so mp, but they look great and a lot more clear than you'd expect, albeit a bit washed out, but that's the point of this camera, to give the Polaroid look to the images that print. The viewfinder is a bit odd to look through because it does look a bit fuzzy. All in all, as long as you know what this camera is for and what you'll get from the prints, I'd say buy it. If you're looking for an instant print camera with extremem clarity, well I don't know what go tell you.
