Turning On
Your On/Off switch is your viewfinder. To
turn on your Snap, gently press the power
icon on the viewfinder. Your viewfinder will
pop up and your camera will turn on.
Turning Off
Use slight pressure to push the viewfinder
back to a closed position. Your camera is
now off.
Taking Photos
Is the lens cap off? Good! Press and release
the shutter button and voila! You’ve taken
a photo.
Your camera will automatically flash and auto
focus for every photo. A lens cap has been
included to keep your lens clean and scratch-
free. Don’t forget to use it!
The Snap camera instantly prints every photo
for you when ZINK Paper™
is loaded.
Using Your Snap Inserting Photo Paper
Slide the latch on the paper tray and open
the door.
Slide the entire pack of ZINK Paper™
into the paper tray.
Make sure the ZINK Smart Sheet™
is placed and loaded with the bar code
face down.
– Shiny side of paper faces up.
3. Close the paper tray door.
The ZINK Smart Sheet™
will eject when you
take a picture, then your photo will print.
For bright, sharp instant photos that come
out dry to the touch and ready to peel and
stick, we recommend Polaroid Premium
ZINK Paper™
Refilling Photo Paper
When the last Zink Paper™
is used, the LED
next to the paper icon on the back of your
Snap will glow red. You can now safely reload
printing paper into your camera.
Paper Do’s & Don’ts
Do not add more paper if the paper
compartment is not completely empty.
Do not fill the paper compartment with

more than one 10-pack of Premium
ZINK Paper™
. Filling over 10 sheets can
damage the printer.
Do avoid bending the ZINK Paper™
Do hold the paper by its edges. Avoid
touching the surface with your fingers.
If there is a paper jam, if you insert the
wrong type of paper, or there is some other
printing/paper related error, all indicators
will blink red. Open your camera and correct
the error (clear jam, replace paper, etc.) then
restart your camera.
Your Snap is built with enough memory to
capture and print one 5MP image at a time.
Inserting an SD Card
Your Snap comes with an SD Card slot for
images that you’d like to save, as well as
print. To insert a memory card, gently guide
the SD card into the slot on the side of
your camera. You’ll feel a slight click when
the card is fully inserted and the SD LED
will glow white. Use cards with up to 32GB
max capacity.
Removing an SD Card
Give a light tap to the top of the card
and the SD card will pop out. Pull to fully
remove from your Snap.
SD Card Memory Indicator
When the memory on your SD card dips
below 1GB the LED on the back of your
Snap will glow red. When the memory
reaches zero, or if there is an error reading
the SD card, the LED will blink red.
Transferring Files
Via USB Cable
Using the included micro USB cable,
connect your Snap to a computer. Double-
click the SD card when it appears on your
computer desktop to view and save your
images to a photo roll or other location.

above then insert the card into your

the battery LED will glow red. At 2% power,
your camera will automatically shut down.
To charge your Snap, plug it into either a
wall outlet or computer, using the included
micro USB cable. The battery LED will blink
red until the battery is fully charged.
