Fu­ji­film re­veals first ana­logue square cam­era

Amateur Photographer - - 7days -

FU­JI­FILM has now launched the In­stax Square SQ6. Al­though the square-for­mat film has been used pre­vi­ously in the SQ10 – a ba­sic dig­i­tal cam­era with an in-built In­stax printer – the SQ6 is com­pletely ana­logue. The square In­stax film has also been used by Fu­ji­film for its In­stax Share SP-3 printer.

While the SQ6 may be the first In­stax-branded ana­logue cam­era to use its square-for­mat film, it’s not the first time that the square film has been used in an ana­logue- only cam­era. The Lo­mog­ra­phy Lomo’In­stant Square sup­ports both the square and mini In­stax for­mats.

A few dif­fer­ent shoot­ing modes can be used with the SQ6. There’s dou­ble ex­po­sure, which can com­bine two ex­po­sures on the same piece of film, and a macro mode that can be used to cap­ture self­ies and close-ups as near as 30cm, while the land­scape mode al­lows long-range shoot­ing from a min­i­mum of two me­tres.

Other fea­tures in­clude a 10-se­cond timer de­lay, an LED light dis­play, a selfie mir­ror and a tri­pod socket. The SQ6 uses two CR2/ DL CR2 lithium batteries, and the bat­tery life is said to last for ap­prox­i­mately 30 of the 10-shot packs. A pack of In­stax Square film will usu­ally set you back around £9.

The In­stax SQ6 will be avail­able in three colours: Pearl White, Blush Gold and Graphite Gray. To cel­e­brate the launch, In­stax is also re­leas­ing black in­stant film, which will fea­ture a new black frame. Sev­eral users have called for Fu­ji­film to in­tro­duce a monochrome vari­ant of its square-for­mat film.

Avail­able to buy now, the SQ6 is priced at £124.99.
