Polaroid’s new digital instant camera

November 9, 2011

Polaroid has announced the Z340, a 14-megapixel digital version of its classic Polaroid Land Camera introduced in 1948.

Priced at $299.99, the z340 uses ZINK (zero ink) Paper to deliver a 3×4” print — the same size as the classic Polaroid photos. ZINK Paper is an advanced composite material with cyan, yellow, and magenta dye crystals embedded inside. The camera uses heat to activate and colorize these crystals.  A 2.7” color LCD allows for viewing images before printing.
