Polaroid recently piqued our interest with its instant-print Zink camera (pictured), due any time from July. While we wait impatiently for that gem to arrive, the company has also let slip some tantalising details on a possible big brother.

Senior vice president Philippe Kalmbach has been saying that they're ready to start looking at a bridge camera version with a "very high" zoom and better features.

The debut Zink camera has a mere seven megapixels, 2in screen and prints diddy 2x3in shots, so this is good news indeed.

Meanwhile if you can't wait to get your hands on Zink's mini printing technology, we're now told the Bluetooth Zink printer will be here in June.
