Just have in mind polaroid isn’t the same company who used to make the cameras, the trademark was bought by another company.

Keep in mind that if you are on the same network (or on a VPN connecting to the network that the printer is on), you can print from your mobile phone, to any network enabled printer, thus probably 99.9% of the people watching this video already have what they need to print directly from their smartphone.

PS there is rarely ever a need to print directly from your phone, you need to edit the pictures first, and either use a spectrometer to generate a color profile for your printer, to match its output to your calibrated monitor, or generate tiled a gradient proof focusing on contrast, saturation, black level, and a tonal response curve, boosting the tones in the shadow area.

After that examine the images, then figure out where in each tile does the image look closest to your monitor. (I recommend examining them under a 5500-6500k lamp). once you know that, then you can then turn your gradient proof adjustments into a macro which you can use in photoshop before printing other photos.

If you print without calibration, then you will almost always end up with a printed image that looks different than how it looked on the screen.

PS, full sized printers, also consistently give better quality, have cheaper ink, and print faster for their given quality.

Thermal paper also ends up with color shifts over time, and give spectrometers a really hard time because of the lack of a smooth tonal response.
