Fujifilm North American Corp. has added a new model to its growing line-up of instant cameras – the Instax Square SQ1 – an analog instant print camera that can create Instax Square format instant prints that are 1.5 times larger than prints that come from the Instax Mini cameras.
The Instax Square SQ1 uses Instax Square instant film and includes features like automatic exposure and one-touch selfie mode. With the automatic exposure function, the camera will sense the level of ambient light when the shutter button is pressed and optimize the shutter speed and flash output according to lighting conditions. This, says Manny Almeida, President of the Imaging Division, allows even novice users to take properly exposed photos, despite the conditions, resulting in “clear and vibrant instant prints.”
Meanwhile, with one-touch selfie mode and the built-in selfie mirror, you can get selfies and other close-up shots. Just set the best focus and exposure by rotating the lens from “On” to “Selfie” mode.
The Fujifilm Instax Square SQ1 will be available in Canada in Terracotta Orange, Glacier Blue, and Chalk White in late September, at an MSRP of $160. The new Instax Square instant film comes in both Rainbow and Monochrome and will come in 10-sheet packs. They’ll be available in late October for MSRP $15 for a pack of the Rainbow film and $16 for a pack of monochrome.
