Polaroid Launches Snap: the snap-shot camera without ink

 The past takes on the future and becomes something completely new. As in the case of the new Polaroid camera, Snap, a contemporary reinterpretation of the classic instant camera, which was announced last fall.

Snap, with an essential and futuristic design, is equipped with a 10 megapixel sensor and uses the 'Zero Ink' (ZINK) technology to print from 5.08 x 7.62 cm images with no ink but thanks to yellow, magenta and cyan crystals. Initially the crystals are colorless, but when it starts printing the heat activates the crystals, coloring the appropriate shades.

Of course, the print size is quite small, but still is quite an achievement when you consider that you do not use ink: it is the heat to activate the crystals contained in the color card.

The camera does not have a screen, but it has a retractable viewfinder on top, and there are three shooting modes - color, black and white and vintage Polaroid filter - in addition to a passport photo mode that takes six pictures in ten seconds, with or without the classic edge that distinguishes the old Polaroid photos.

Complete the panoramic one microSDHC slot to store pictures in digital format and a 10-second timer; essential in this era dominated by self-portraits and selfies. The photos are large 2 x 3-inch borderless, and the printing is virtually immediate.
