When the Polaroid Land Camera hit the scene in 1972, they instantly (pun intended) revolutionized the way we thought about photography. No longer did film take hours to develop in a darkroom—the age of instant imaging gratification had dawned. Today, with digital cameras, far more images are produced instantly than on analog film. But there’s something to be said for having tangible photos in an album, and luckily you don’t need a darkroom to do it. Here are our top five best photo printers on the market today.
