    "A decent fun camera reminiscent of Polaroid days, just not quite as fun and retro. Certainly nice having the instant pictures though, I miss that."

    "Polaroid is nothing like it used to be, with current updates to the print now camera, the polaroid is like no other camera on the market! Not only does it print now so you can have the pictures in hand, but it prints clear precise pictures. That means no more waiting for the printer, waiting for them at the drugstore or just keeping them online. Polaroid has put the power of printing your pictures back in your hands!"

    "TO BE HONEST, I DID NOT FIND THIS CAMERA TO BE THAT GOOD. WHILE THE PRICE IS GREAT, THERE ARE MANY ISSUES. THE PICTURES COME OUT DARK, THE BATTERY DIES WAY TO FAST, AND I KNOW A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD THEIRS STOP WORKING AFTER ONLY A FEW MONTHS. I WOULD STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE. "

    "Polaroid is making a comeback with its instant camera. The Snap Touch lets you take pictures, edit them through the camera, and selectively print the ones you want so you don't waste the paper which can be expensive at $0.50 a print. There is an issue with the battery though. It doesn't always fully charge and is difficult to replace. "
