I have used this printer in the field at 4 seperate charity functions and it has performed 150%. Color is spot on, print quality is fantastic, and a big topper kids love to watch it work. In fact a few adults got quite a kick out of it too. I've had no problems finding carts for it in fact, I've gone through 7 so far. Even in the field, the ability to give the customer a hard copy on the spot can seal the gig. Brings me back to the old Polaroid days. Yes I used them for the same purpose but, the quality of today's DSLR lenses comes out in the prints and blows away the old way. I'll be looking for an upgrade with a battery power source. My truck has an inverter that works fine but I'd like to know I can get away without it.

good product/no cartridge
Found the product great for 4x6 pictures. Very good quality and prints fast. I wouldn't recommend this product to friends or family for the fact that I cannot buy the replacement cartridges anywhere but online. When I need the cartridge, I'd like to just run out and buy a couple and not pay for shipping.

Just received this vial mail just a few days ago. I love it, love it! It's fairly compact in size compared to a regular home printer. The setup is easy and quick. 5min about. The prints are sharp and detailed. Definitely as good as CVS etc.
I wanted something I could take everywhere which I can with this. As far as finding film for this, if you are reading this, then you most likely have internet access. Just order film online and you won't have to worry where to find the film. Only disappointment is that this doesn't come with any film. I'm still giving this a 5star rating because it's fast and convenient and it prints great qualilty pics. Also you don't have to let the pics dry before handling them. Plus this accepts a variety of camera cards.
Just get this and you won't be disappointed. At least I wasn't
