Polaroid GL10 Instant 3X4 Mobile Printer for Digital Cameras and Smart Camera Phones – Review:
A COOL GADGET, EXPENSIVE… BUT USEFUL!
I bought this printer yesterday. I gotta say it’s actually quite good… for what it is. Definitely it’s superior to the Pogo printer in terms of quality… though it would be nice if the the 3×4 prints were also sticky backs. The color accuracy is actually quite reasonable. Unless you use very strong contrasting hues, then they tend to vibrate next to eachother. The images do not have a perfect polaroid feel… more it’s like a dye sub system from 10 years ago. That said, as a pinter to roll in my camera bag with me, it’s perfect.
A couple of notes, the black and white images have a cyan cast natively. If you use the polaroid app, downloaded directly from polaroid you will have the option of color adjusting to sorta help subdue the cast, but it didn’t seem to really fix the issue. You will want to download the app… it will pair over bluetooth like the pogo and print in the same fashion as the pogo… with decent results, but the transfer is slow. From the app on my macbookpro the prints have a little bit (not a whole lot, but there is a difference) better color management. Plus it allows you to use a USB cable to transfer images and that dramatically speeds up the process per print.
All in all, if you were a pogo fan, you’ll really like the prints from the GL10.
The GL10 is better than the pogo. It’s not as good as the Epson pictuemate, but it’s far more portable.
