Fujifilm has just taken the curtains off a new instant camera – the instax Square SQ10. The instax Square SQ10 is a hybrid camera that lets you capture pictures in digital or instant format. Like its name suggests, it prints square photos with an aspect ratio of 1:1.
First of all, the SQ10 is a digital camera, so you can say goodbye to those moments where you wasted your precious instax films because your subject was out of frame, or the lighting wasn’t optimum. You can also print your photos as many times as you want and share it with your friends. Take pictures with the instax Square SQ10, save them to the internal memory or storage media, review the picture on the display on board, edit them from the camera itself, and print out the pictures you want. There are 10 filters, brightness control and vignette control.
Specifications wise, Fujifilm says that the SQ10 uses a new system with CMOS sensor, and an image processor. Together, they can produce better shots than any previous instax cameras, especially in low-light conditions.
Of course, with the launch of this new square instax camera, Fujifilm is also introducing a new instax Square film. The films are measured at 86 x 72mm, while the picture size is 62 x 62mm. In comparison, the regular instax mini film measures at 54 x 86mm, with a picture size of 46x62mm.
The Fujifilm Instax Square SQ10 will be available starting next month for US$279.95 (about RM1,235), while the square films costs US$16.99 (RM75) for a pack of 10.
