PROS

  • With built-in filters and photos that print onto stickers within seconds, the Snap generates excitement that is contagious.
  • You will never have to replace the ink; it is embedded in the paper.
  • The 3x5-inch camera fits in most pockets.

CONS

  • The digital photos are low quality and the instant-printed photos sometimes have visible streaks.
  • There is no zoom or screen of any kind.
  • The viewfinder is tiny.
The 3x5-inch Polaroid Snap fits in most pockets. To save space, there is no zooming lens or screen for viewing pictures. The flashy '80s-style camera contains a printer that creates 2x3-inch photos in color, black and white, and vintage style. Each photo prints in 30 to 60 seconds onto sticker sheets with embedded ink. There is a microSD slot for saving photos. Both the printed and saved photos are low quality but fun and convenient.

I wouldn't want it as my only camera, and it could easily fall into that category of gadgets you use a couple times and then stick in a drawer, especially if you don't keep a supply of paper on hand. But if you frequently find yourself wanting to decorate your home or office or belongings with pictures, it's worth the investment.

There’s quite a few things that we’d like to change about the Polaroid Snap. The ability to turn the flash off, the ability to not print if you don’t want to, or the ability to print something again, would all be great additions.

Image quality is disappointing though, with the camera producing images that are worse than most smartphones.

Everyone I showed the camera to turned into a giddy little kid waiting for the pics to print out. You just can't help but get excited because it's such a rarity these days to have a photo you can hold in your hands, let alone stick on something.
