Little snapshot prints to dye-sub for
Polaroid’s Hi-Print 2×3 Pocket Photo Printer churns out excellent-looking wallet-size photos. Opt for the Starter Set version, though; it comes with enough paper and ink to print 40 snapshots.
Polaroid’s Hi-Print 2×3 Pocket Photo Printer ($99.99) is the instant camera vendor’s latest push into the market for mini photo printers that work with mobile devices. Given formidable competition from Canon, Fujifilm, HP, Kodak, and others, the Hi-Print stands apart for using dye-sublimation printing technology, which produces more vibrant images than what we see from the Zero Ink (ZINK) imaging method that many such pocket printers use. The Hi-Print output looks great, but the consumables are more cumbersome and leave behind a lot more packaging waste, and the cost per photo is very high, especially for this model’s small 2.1-by-3.4-inch format. Also, our test model lacks even a small sample of paper and ink to get you started. The Hi-Print is all about the high, indeed: high-quality prints, at a high cost.
