What I've not seen yet is:
- Any detailed comments from someone who's had one to play with for long enough to find out what's annoying about it.
- Scans of photos printed by said Pogo. I just spent several moments squinting at a still from The Gadget Show, and I can't tell a thing from it. Ditto with the youtube videos. --oh, I've already checked flickr, and all it has is the same old product shots or conventional Polaroids of people (or dogs) called Pogo.
- Which is kind of odd, given that everyone who has tested it has obviously taken some photos. Are they being scooped up and confiscated after the reviews?
I got more excited by the back-pocket photo printer than by mini-tanks (which featured on the same show, and are objects of pure joy!) but now I'm mildly frustrated because I want to see the photos. Not two minute videos of frothing gadget bloggers giving non-expert opinion to a background of tinny copyright free beats. That's no use to me at at all.
I want to see what the quirks of the printing process are. Does Zink print look warm or cool, deep or soft? How's the contrast? What are the blacks like? Not because I expect it to be bad (it's sure to compare favourably both with polaroid and earlier mini-printing systems) but because I expect it to be interesting, different, and have an individual quality. It's a new printing process! Brilliant! Now Can anyone tell me what it looks like?
Just no more links to v-bloggers, please. I may cry.
