Polaroid PoGo Instant Printer

Can the PoGo Take the Place of My Polaroid Instant Camera?

Since we last spoke about the Polaroid Instant Camera, I was buying up an obscene amount of film in preparation for the Polaroid apocalypse. As you know, after January 2009, there won't be any more instant film produced — and I couldn't be more depressed about it. But in an attempt to appease the instant-film lovers out there, Polaroid has taken things to the next level and has produced the PoGo — a portable printer that lets you print photos wirelessly from your cellphone (via Bluetooth) or from your digital camera (via USB).

As much as I appreciate the effort, I am still skeptical that the PoGo can fully live up to the love for the Instant Camera. However, I'm willing to give it a try. I recently came across the PoGo at Target (as you can see I spend way too much time there). To see my first impressions of the PoGo, just


Although I wasn't able to test it out myself, the PoGo is amazingly small. It's about the size of a deck of cards, and could easily be tossed in my bag when I'm on the go. The PoGo prints out borderless 2-x-3-inch photos in a matter of seconds, and as far as I can tell from recent reviews, seems to have pretty good print quality for a device of its size. Although at $150, I could buy a new laptop bag, or a great desktop printer for the same price. And even though the PoGo is not compatible with my iPhone, I could still print wirelessly from my Blackberry. The jury is still out for me, but would you consider picking up a PoGo?

nope, not the same. I like to take the polariods apart and mess with the emulsion some.

Take the place of your Polaroid!? Are you serious? Of course not! That's photographic blasphemy.

I got one at the new, lower price and I love it! I rarely print out pictures because it seems like a pain, but the pogo is really fun. I can't wait to use it at a get-together - I think it will be a real hit.

They dropped the price to 99 recently, which isn't to bad. Plus I work at Target so I get an extra 10 percent off : )
