Polaroid has just announced the new Z2300, the latest offering in the company’s instant digital camera lineup. The 10-megapixel Z2300 features a 3-inch LCD screen and an integrated printer with Zero Ink (“ZINK”) Technology that lets you capture, edit and print full color, 2×3-inch prints in under a minute. Here’s how the ZINK Technology works: “The patented ZINK Paper® is an advanced composite material with cyan, yellow, and magenta dye crystals embedded inside. Before printing, the embedded dye crystals are clear, so the ZINK Paper looks like regular white photo paper. The Z2300 uses heat to activate and colorize these crystals, delivering clear, vibrant prints in less than a minute…The ZINK prints emerge fully developed and protected by a smudge-proof, water-resistant coating.” Neat. And there are a couple of printing style choices, including the iconic Polaroid Classic Border Logo or full bleed and contemporary 2×3-inch photos with a sticky back.
The Polaroid Z2300 camera is available for pre-order now for $159.99, with 50-packs of 2×3 premium ZINK Paper retailing for $24.99 and 30-sheet packs retailing for $14.99. Polaroid is also hosting a giveaway to allow fans the chance to get a free Z2300 before they hit shelves. Check out the sweepstakes rules at www.facebook.com/Polaroid.
