Description

We've always associated the Polaroid brand with sunglasses and instant piccies that plop straight out of the camera. You know, the sort of shots taken by mischievous snappers eager to bypass the local processing store.

But that was before we came across the totally ingenious Polaroid iZone 550. Taking a leaf from the apple tree in terms of design, this über-stylish 5 megapixel digital camera is a beautifully-engineered piece of kit that puts many a no-name camera to shame.

Polaroid iZone 550 If you're new to the wonderful world of digital photography you're going to love the iZone 550, because operating this chic white gizmo is easier than saying cheese. But don't be fooled by the idiot-proof functionality and sub-ton price tag; the 550 is rammed full of features. As well as crystal clear 5.1 megapixel resolution, this fashionable little snapper boasts a 2" TFT LCD display, 16MB internal flash memory (upgradeable via SD Card), 4x digital zoom and video clip capability. It can even play MP3 files, so you could, in theory, mime the harmonica solo from Karma Chameleon as you happily snap away - although we wouldn't recommend it; a spittle covered camera is really rather yucky.

Despite this impressive feature list we thought we'd save the real revelation till last. No, the iZone 550 doesn't double up as a mouth organ (although that would be good); it lets you print your piccies without a PC. That's right, in classic Polaroid-cuts-out-the-middleman-fashion, the 550 is PictBridge compatible. This means you simply connect the iZone to any PictBridge compatible printer and let the photos flow. It's easy peasy no PCeasy!

Of course, despite its PictBridge-friendly functionality, Polaroid know that most of you will also be using the iZone 550 in conjunction with your computer, so they've been good enough to throw in a super sleek docking station for charging and downloading purposes. Quite honestly, looking at the supreme build-quality of the 550 we can't work out why it isn't triple the price. But we're not complaining - and neither will you be once you start snapping away with this chic box of tricks. Clever? It's totally iGenius!

      • Please refer to the “Print Settings” section of the full user manual for guidance in using PictBridge. Please note your camera may be supplied with an Addendum Sheet referring to the use of PictBridge. Please keep this safe after reading it. Do not connect your camera to the printer until you have selected the PictBridge option from the Review Menu and can see the message “Please Connect To Device” Some printers may not support all the PictBridge features offered by your camera. You will see the following message “Printer Setting Not Supported” Please refer to your printerÂ’s user manual and start your printing again. PictBridge printing can be slightly slower than printing from a PC. This is due to the processing power available. Please be patient. If you have any further problems please contact our customer service team.
