    Polaroid will refuse to fix

    I bought ut my boyfriend the Snap Touch for his birthday in January 2018. He uses this camera on occasion but, when it’s not in use, it’s carefully put away in our dresser. We brought it out to our family get together just before Christmas and suddenly it won’t respond. It won’t charge, it is pretty much a paper weight. I look online and see this is a common problem and it’s most likely the battery malfunctioning. I get in contact with Polaroid and they tell me just what google did and said it’s most likely the battery malfunctioning. They absolutely cannot do anything for me unless I have my receipt. Considering I bought this when it came out, almost a year ago, I do not have the receipt. Still, there is nothing to be done without proof of purchase. I think this is ridiculous and a slap in the face to their customers. Obviously this is a common problem and they will do nothing about it? I wish I would have known this was the way they dealt with faulty products before I purchased my Onestep plus for Christmas. 0/10 do not recommend. Will never shop with Polaroid again.

    Great Instant Picture Camera, But still needs work

    I brought this camera for my girlfriend, I first saw the $99 one and then caught eye on this touch one for a little more and decided to go with this option instead. My girlfriend loved it when she first received it. For a couple of days all she did was take pictures with it and then out of nowhere all of that stopped. Me being who I am, was curious as to why she stopped using it so I secretly messed around with it while she was at work. Here are my complaints.....it takes to long to shut on and off, it can be triggered on, if thrown in a bag and as a consequence will drain the battery's life fast. And speaking of battery life, it dies rather earlier than I would expect a camera to, besides those faults, as all electronics do have some, its a great product but improvements are needed. The Pros are its small form factor, the fact that you can print pictures within seconds is also a great option for keeping those memories with you forever in the physical, but sorry to say it doesn't really offer much else.

    The quality is so-so, outwear looks cheap, the material is plastic tactile feel not good, feels like it might be broken any time so I'm very careful using it. must buy a case because even your nail can make a scratch on it. about the monitor resolution is pretty bad barely see. The touchscreen is useless, responding speed is slow. The Bluetooth function is very impressed easy to connect with my iPhone x. I like the picture's size, it perfectly fit my wallet (size same as the regular card) so I put my family's picture, every time when I open it I'll know I have family don't spend too much. Battery life is not bad. Overall this product is only good for someone who doesn't have a high pixel camera or cell phone if you do have one you should get the higher resolution picture printer because you won't be getting used to it. for me this product just a picture printer (never use camera function) so I very regret and stupid, why'd I spend over $290 to buy it, I definitely could buy a better quality picture printer on this price -.-

    A Fun Camera

    I like this camera for what it is, a fun device that prints pictures instantly. It has lots of other cool features, including a touch screen, different borders, takes videos and has lots of editing features. It's really a fun device! The pictures may be small, but it's really neat that they double as stickers if you want. It also acts as a printer for photos that you have on your smartphone or tablet. If you are a professional photographer, or want super-duper high quality photos, opt for an expensive 35mm digital. But if you're looking for a fun camera that is easy to use with good quality pics, give this one a try. It's small enough to fit in your pocket and comes in a variety of colors. You will be the life of the party with this camera! Instantly print pics and give them to guests. Film is fairly inexpensive, especially in multi-packs.

    Fun camera for quick pics

    I was looking at the Fuji instax camera as a fun way for my 8 year old and her friends to take pictures and actually, physically share them/have keepsakes to look back on in a few years (all are too young for their own social media etc). Found this and the ability to keep a digital copy and print multiples sold me. Are the pictures anything that’ll blow you away, no, did they fit what I was looking for, absolutely! I had trouble figuring out which way to load the “paper” the first time (the image instructions on the calibration sheet are not intuitive) but after that they had lots of fun with it. I loved that unlike the old school Polaroid where you had to fight over who got the picture, you can print as many copies of the same pic as you want! (One for each kid in the pic in group shots etc)

    Awful Images

    I am so disappointed (not with Best Buy but with POLAROID)! I have the previous version of this camera <1yr old; stopped charging. Reached out to Polaroid... got nothing. So I bought a new one on Best Buy website. Easy purchase, fast delivery. I was so excited to see new features on camera! Like the power button! I use my previous SD card. Images came across pixelated. Used it for my birthday, new photos... TERRIBLE! BLURRY! Tried it a second round Valentine's week. Same. When printing the image color comes out awful! Also, the original Polaroid border comes out super thin and skinny. Does not print out like an actual mini Polaroid photo. So disappointed. Returning it today!

    Best Overall Instant Camera

    Blows the competition away. Three words, LCD, digital, size. Small enough to pop in my shirt pocket, can't do that with the rest. Others have viewfinders, viewfinder error, with LCD what you see is what you get. Since it's digital, you won't waste $$ on bad shots, print only the good shots, with others, every shot is $$ out of your wallet. If you have one good shot, can come up with many prints at a party. Can easily print enlargements by plugging directly into HP printer. 8.5 x 11s good detail. Better than most cell phones. Snap Touch worth the extra $$ over regular Touch. $$ saved on not printing bad prints makes up the difference quickly.

    This is a super fun camera. Getting the pictures printed out on stickers is great if you are into scrapbooking. The filters are very limited and most don't look very good, at least in my testing, but it's neat that they're there. I think a lot of people will complain about the photos being small, but I didn't expect huge photos, and for the affordable price I think you get a great product, especially considering that they double as stickers. If you want to have some fun taking photos, and absolutely if you like scrapbooking, grab one of these. The quality isn't top of the line, but I definitely think the quality is great for what you're getting and paying.

    Gift for daughter

    Bought this as a Christmas gift for my 16 year old daughter. She was wanting a Polaroid camera. The reviews online were pretty good. Personally I thought the pictures weren’t the greatest and the color was off. We tried different settings, but nothing helped much. The pics were a little better if taken outside in the sunlight. With that being said, my daughter really seemed to like it. She enjoyed the fun “Polaroid” aspect of it. Maybe I just got a “bad” one, since the reviews said it took good pictures. But I probably wouldn’t recommend this to someone else considering the price.

    So first of all this was a gift for my 13 y/o so don't expect anything spectacular out of the camera or the prints, but has a great fun factor. So, I decided on this model due to the well balanced price of the paper, and the optional monitor. The monitor helps figure out which pictures should be printed and what to delete. Yes it is an extra $79, but given the amount of parer you are going to save it's all worth the difference. I gave it 4 starts because the first one we purchase had an issue with the battery (would not charge anymore after about 1 week of use). No issues with the second one, so I am am happy with the purchase.

    There are so many reasons why i dont like it. The on/off switch is on the flash, it doesnt open all the way when i press to turn it on so you have to push it back first so you can properly turn it off. Connecting it to your phone is horrible!! It is very hard to pair it and when I successfully did, it wont print the image!!! I left it on overnight to see if that will still go through but it just drained the battery! The print outcome doesnt look good! The ink just doesnt look right! It is fading like as if you run out if ink. The touch screen seems that it will not last very long..

    Great Instant Camera

    This little camera is great for an instant camera. It's built well and functions like a regular point and shoot camera, allowing you to save photos to the memory and move them to your PC or other devices relatively easily. Unlike other instant cameras out there today you can also choose weather or not you want to print a photo, saving you on the instant photo papers. The main complaint is that the view finder is not very good and has occasionally stuck.

    I was looking for a Polaroid camera but let's face it. In this digital age we are used to having a ton of photos but unless we send out to print photos they are only available social media wise. But I didn't want to get a camera to just print 1 photo and never be able to print again. What I love about this camera. Is that it's small. It's digital so not only can you save all your photos you can print only the ones you want. Even better it has blue tooth and wireless capabilities so I can print photos I've taken on my iPhone so it also serves as a portable printer. Love it!!

    Worst piece of tech I have ever purchased.

    As a photographer and a tech junkie, just don't buy it. Trust me. I didn't listen to the negative things I read and I paid the price. This paperweight is full of bugs. It has a hard time focusing and letting you take the picture. The iOS app is also full of bugs. Printing from your phone is a horrible experience. It pulls all of your photos up super blurry and low-res and prints them just like that. Full of pixels. Another fun fact: it is not compatible with iOS 11. I feel like they just aren't even trying anymore.

    This camera is pretty great. We used it for a photo booth at a party. The thing that sets this Polaroid apart from others is the digital touch screen. You only print the pictures you want and have the option to have a SD memory card. It will save only about 10 pictures without the cars. You can add different frames to the pictures which is fun. What makes it great for the photo booth is you can purchase film with adhesive back 60 prints for about $20. Much more affordable than the film for my daughters older Polaroid.

    the second generation polaroid snap touch is pretty awesome. the screen is way bigger, you have the option of whether or not you want to print the photo that you just took (super helpful if you took an ugly one & it saves paper if you think about it) and you can put an sd chip in it to save a high volume a pictures. i wish that the quality of the photos the camera takes was a tad bit better, but other than that I would definitely recommend this!

    Picture Quality is disappointing

    Anna

    The concept of the camera is awesome but theres so much that needs improvement. It's great that I can print photos instantly, but the quality is really bad. It looks very faded, faces become distorted, the color isn't true to the original photo, the shadows become even darker on the printed image. Very sad.

    Bought this camera because I have young kids and family members never have enough pictures and this is the greatest thing for little stuff like that! The app allows you to edit and print pictures previously taken, which is nice. The camera itself is decent in my opinion. It works great for what I needed it for! Just make sure you have good lighting is my only tip :)

    The camera comes on a little too easily, with the touch of the top middle section (which is how it is turned on and off .... but it is just sensitive and poorly positioned in my experience). Short battery life. Appears to be broken when the battery is empty .... need to fully charge and then it works fine. Simple pictures, a little over-rated. Would be great if the pictures could meet passport requirements. Nice service saving time and money.

    Buy the camera as a Christmas present for my daughter. When we opened it, it did not work and I read that it was an old model that only turned on when you opened the flash, returned to the store and it was changed without inconvenience by the newer model that included a simple on / off button that apparently is the solution . My happy daughter taking pictures
