Why you can trust Digital Camera World Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out how we test.

Polaroid really started something with the launch of its first instant camera, all the way back in 1948. Naturally, the business of instant, analogue printing has been comprehensively overtaken in the digital age but there are times when you can’t beat a paper print for sharing around, or for putting somewhere you can actually see it without resorting to using a gadget. 

The Polaroid Hi–Print 2x3 Pocket Photo Printer teams up with your smartphone via Bluetooth pairing, while its Polaroid Hi·Print companion app for iOS and Android enables you to quickly and easily create a photo print in one minute flat.
