Turning On

  • Press the power button, located on the top of the camera. Make sure your camera battery is fully charged.

Turning Off

  • Press the power button to turn off the camera. The camera will automatically go into sleep mode after 5 minutes of inactivity.

Taking Photos

  • Press the shutter button on the top right to take a photo. Your camera will automatically focus and activate the flash depending on the lighting conditions for each photo.


  • The KODAK PRINTOMATIC camera uses only KODAK ZINK Photo Paper to instantly and automatically print 2″ x 3″ photos as soon as you snap them. Make sure the camera is loaded with KODAK ZINK Photo Paper.

Inserting Photo Paper

  • Press down and slide the paper compartment door open.
  • Slide the entire pack of KODAK ZINK Photo Paper into the paper tray.
  • Each pack of KODAK ZINK Photo Paper includes a blue Color Calibration Sheet. Make sure the pack is loaded with the blue Color Calibration Sheet with the barcode facing down. The glossy side of the paper should be facing up.
  • Close the paper compartment door.
  • The blue Color Calibration Sheet will eject when you take your first picture, and then your photo will print.


Refilling Photo Paper

  • Only load a single pack of 10 papers and the corresponding blue Color Calibration Sheet in the printer at one time when the printer is empty. The Color Calibration Sheet will be processed automatically at the start of each paper pack, calibrating the printer for that specific paper.

Paper Do’s & Don’ts

  • Do not add more paper until the paper compartment is empty.
  • Do not fill the paper compartment with more than one 10-pack of KODAK ZINK Photo Paper. Filling over 10 sheets can damage the printer.
  • Do not bend the KODAK ZINK Photo Paper.
  • Do hold the paper by its edges. Avoid touching the surface with your fingers.
  • When not in use, store KODAK ZINK Photo Paper at temperatures between 68°F and 77°F (20°C and 25°C).
  • If you inserted the wrong type of paper, if there is a paper jam or some other related error, the LED on top of the camera will blink red. Open your camera and correct the error (clear jam, replace paper, etc.), and then restart your camera.


  • Your KODAK PRINTOMATIC is designed to capture and print immediately and can hold up to 3 images at a time. To save your pictures use an external microSD* card to extend its memory capacity.

Inserting a microSD™ Card

  • Your KODAK PRINTOMATIC accommodates a 32GB microSD™ card. Gently slide the card into the slot at the bottom of your camera. You will feel a slight click when the card is fully inserted.

Removing a microSD™ Card

  • Push on the top of the card to release it. Gently pull to fully remove the card from the camera.

MicroSD™ Card Error Indication

  • When the memory on your microSD* card reaches zero, or if there is an error reading the card, the LED on top of the camera will blink red.

Transferring Files to Your Computer

  • Via USB Cable: Using a micro USB cable (not included), connect your KODAK PRINTOMATIC to a computer. Double-click the memory card image when it appears on your computer desktop to view and save your images.
  • Via microSD™ Card: Remove the microSD™ card from the camera as indicated above. Insert the card into your card reader.
