Back

Controls are pretty standard for a digital camera. The 3-inch LCD seemed to be pretty low-quality, but this was a preproduction camera so here's hoping it'll be a bit better when it ships in August.

Next to the LCD is a switch for opening the camera to load the Zink printer paper.

Zero ink paper

Polaroid's been using the Zero Ink paper technology for several years now. There are dye crystals in the paper that when heated go from clear to color. The camera creates a 2x3-inch print in less than a minute.
