One of the first things I noticed about the Socialmatic is that it’s nowhere near pocket-sized.  This camera is large, square, bulky and not easy to hold. To do some initial tests, I brought it to meet some friends at the pub and took some shots.  Sadly the photos were rather dark on their own.  Adding the flash helped, but gave the photos a bleached out overly-bright look.

That said, the convienience of being able to print photos on the spot is appealing.  I’ll post a full review after further testing.
