IN­STAX SQ6

Your Family - - Live Smart -

Fujifilm has man­aged to keep a lot of old and new fans happy with the amount of in­stant cam­eras re­leased over the years. The SQ6 is the lat­est and it’s the first ana­logue in­stant cam­era that takes pho­tos in the for­mat pop­u­larised by In­sta­gram – a square. The 1:1 ra­tio al­lows you to fit more into the frame than the pre­vi­ously avail­able credit card-sized pho­tos. The cam­era in­cludes three fil­ters – green, pur­ple and pink – as well as the nat­u­ral op­tion. There are var­i­ous modes: in­doors, out­doors, lighten, darken, a 10-sec­ond self-timer, and dou­ble ex­po­sure. If you love tak­ing self­ies, there’s even a lit­tle mir­ror on the front to guide you.

VER­DICT: A fun gad­get to own or gift, but keep in mind the cost of film, which is slightly higher than for pre­vi­ous mod­els, mean­ing mis­takes and un­in­ten­tional shots can be­come ex­pen­sive. Avail­able in black with ac­cents of pink, white or grey. Price: R1 989; film avail­able sep­a­rately at R189 for 10 im­ages.
