Conclusion: Ultimately the product is about printing photographs, and it simply doesn’t do that very well. I’m a little apprehensive now regarding the upcoming camera. If the quality is the same, then it’s not going to be worth buying no matter how cool it looks. If you want a fun, cool way to make instant pictures, there are a few cameras like the Lomo Diana F+ I reviewed last year that use Fujifilm Instax film, which ends up costing a little more but is much more fun to use.
Pros: Handsome, fairly compact design, Negligible setup, Photos really do print more or less instantly
Cons: Prints have smeary, desaturated color and poor resolution, Around a dollar per shot means it ain’t cheap either
Conclusion: If all you want to do is print photos the GL10 is a reasonable option. The printing quality is good and fast. We thought colours looked a little washed out, but as a printer you can comfortably keep in your bag the GL10 is a pretty impressive unit.
