The Polaroid Lab uses a 3-lens system that essentially acts as a desktop darkroom in order to turn your digital photos into instant Polaroid pictures. No printing, no scanning, just 100% real film chemistry. The 3 lens system projects the screen image from your phone and exposes it onto Polaroid film. Then, Polaroid's unique chemical process develops the image into a Polaroid picture. The Polaroid Lab is compatible with both 600 and i-Type film.
In order to print your photos with the Lab, you are required to download the Polaroid Originals app. This is compatible with iOS 11.4 or higher, and Android 7 or higher. Through the app, you can then access two notable creative features: collages and augmented reality. The collage feature allows you to create collages of up to 9 frames, composed however you like. The augmented reality feature brings your memories back to life, and allows you to layer your still images with video. Simply open up the app and set up, then hold your phone over the Polaroid and the image will be brought to life in the form of a video.
iPhone 6, 6S, 6S+, 7, 7+, 8, 8+, X, XS, XR, XS Max, 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max with IOS 11.4 or higher are compatible with the Polaroid Lab.
The augmented reality feature is available with iPhone 6S and newer.
The Polaroid Lab works with most Android phones, such as Samsung, Google Pixel, Huawei, OnePlus and LG with a screen width higher than 330 DP and Android 7 or higher.
