Kodak Smile Instant Print Digital Camera full review

Kodak’s Smile Instant Print Digital Camera is half instant printer, half instant camera. It can (in theory) print photos you’ve already taken using a different camera and then transferred onto a Micro SD card, but it also has a built-in camera that means you can use it to capture photos on the device itself and print those too. 


This may sound great, but the downside is that we found it does neither thing particularly well. Its camera isn’t fantastic, and it’s very slow so taking photos of kids or animals is almost impossible. You are able to choose not to print bad photos, which can’t be said for all instant cameras, but those you do print are likely to suffer with strange exposure and less than great quality.


We’ve always found Zink printers like this one to be less than satisfactory when it comes to their quality. They tend to lose warmth, clarity and contrast, so you might not love the photos it produces.


The benefit of this kind of printer is that you don’t have to wait for photos to develop, but that’s also part of the appeal of your more traditional instant camera that uses film. As mentioned, you can also choose not to print bad photographs and you can edit them as we explain more about below, as well as exporting them to other devices should you wish to.


When taking photos with the Smile Instant Print Digital Camera, or after you’ve captured one, you can add a border to make the print look more like a traditional instant camera photo, or add monochrome, vintage or aqua filters. These can create some nice effects and we often preferred these edited results to a straightforward print.



There’s also a photobooth option that lets you take two photos to print side by side on one sheet, a timer, and a surprisingly effective flash should you need one.

You can store three photos within the internal memory of the device, but it’s recommended that you add a MicroSD card into the dedicated slot for more storage (up to 256GB). You should also be able to print any photos on the MicroSD card that come from other devices, but during our testing we could not get this to work. All of the photos we added to the MicroSD card, whether in a folder or not, were not recognised as data by the printer and therefore unable to print. 


When it comes to the design and build of the Kodak Smile, we found it to be sturdy and compact, which is handy for popping into a bag to take out and about. It has a lanyard attachment available too. The shutter button is easily accessible and the viewing screen isn’t amazing, but does the job and is more than you’ll get from some similarly priced rivals. We found that the battery life was good, with a handy indicator at the bottom of the screen to help you avoid it running out mid print. 


It’s easy to load the paper into the camera - it uses 2x3 Zink paper (which means Zero Ink so no need to worry about new cartridges) which is widely available to buy from Amazon and isn’t massively expensive. The paper has a peel-off back to allow you to stick prints wherever you fancy. 


It’s a shame the design is more printer-like than camera-like. Some of the charm of an instant camera is taken away by the slightly clunky, boxy design. There are several fun colour options available, though, including black, pink, blue, green and yellow. 


You can buy the Kodak Smile Instant Print Digital Camera from Amazon. It’s priced at £99.99/$99.99, which is in line with rivals of this quality such as the Polaroid Snap, which can be picked up for under £100/$100.


Right now it’s quite difficult to get hold of, because it’s only just been released. In the UK you can either order it from Amazon’s global store at a slightly higher price, or order it from the UK store with a dispatch estimate of 1 to 3 months.


In the US it's available now for the regular price with short shipping times from Amazon.
