Photo Printing With Polaroid Printer
You should not expect studio-quality image printing. The color representation and details can be printed with it accurately but the quality is not that high. Last year, the company made some technical improvements that have significantly increased the image quality also.
The ZINK sheet that the Polaroid printer uses embed cyan, magenta, yellow dye crystal. Initially, you will see the colorless paper, when you start printing, those crystals get heat activation and adjust the required colors in place. The final printed paper comes out dry and smudge-proof because there is no ink involved in the whole printing process.
Printing Speed & Battery
What can you expect from a printer that is even smaller than your smartphone! But the thing that impressed me the most is the speed with which it prints photos. On average it takes only 40 minutes to print a photo. Here it has beaten its competitors badly.
Talking about its battery, you can enjoy its longer battery life. The company advertises that it can print 25 photos per charge, but I have managed to get 30 prints per charge. It requires almost 90 minutes to fully charge and allows you to take print while charging.
