FUJIFILM Instant Analog Camera – Instax Square SQ6 Review

Instax Square SQ6, the first square format analog Instax camera, in the Fujifilm Instax instant camera line. The new Instax Square SQ6 produces real life, beautifully square images measuring 62 x 62mm (2.4 x 2.4 inches) on 86 x 72mm Fujifilm’s Instax Square film. The square format film provides a wider photo range with 1:1 aspect ratio which means it allows more room to set the scene, no need to waste a precious moment to decide whether to capture it in portrait or landscape. The SQ6 is available in three stylish colors, Blush Gold, Graphite Gray, and White.

The SQ6 is Fujifilm’s second square camera after the SQ10, but with the older model launching as a digital-film hybrid uses a digital camera to print directly on the Instax analog film, the SQ6 takes the title for the first analog camera that exposes the film directly. There’re no filters and other controls of the digital hybrid version, but you do get a proper old-school instant camera. The SQ6 is designed as an affordable analog option for shooting 1:1 film with fairly basic features, but typical for instant cameras, optimized for selfies.

Instax Square pictures are much larger when compare to the regular Instax Mini prints, and closer in appearance and feel to traditional Polaroid prints. As we know, instant prints are a lot more expensive than shooting digitally but provide immediacy and uniqueness, that’s why the Instax series is so popular for event and party.

The body of the camera designed to matches the square format of the film. The body also houses an optical viewfinder placed off to one side. You will find a mirror on the front help you get your selfie face ready when shooting selfies. An LED display displays the current shooting mode (Auto, Selfie, Macro, Landscape, Double exposure), brightness adjustment, flash suppressing and self-timer mode. The camera uses two CR2/DL CR2 lithium batteries, which should be enough to see you through 30 Instax Square 10-pack film packs.

The new SQ6 is equipped with various features that enable to crank up your creativity. There’s a direct-vision viewfinder (no through-the-lens), automatic exposure control and autofocus. With automatic exposure control, the high-performance built-in flash automatically calculates the surrounding brightness and adjusts shutter speed to capture both the subject and background with clarity, even when shooting in low light conditions, such as indoors or at a party.

Three color filters that fit over the flash in orange, purple and green are included to add a pop of color to the images. Additionally, the camera can be set to a selfie mode which automatically adjusts focus and brightness. For added usability when taking selfies, a small mirror is located next to the lens to ensure accurate capture. Group photos are made easy with the built-in timer and the added tripod socket located at the bottom of the camera.

The SQ6 offers three unique modes. The double exposure mode is capable of superimposing two images onto a single film when the shutter button is pressed twice. The macro mode allows users to capture beautiful close-up images of subjects within a range of 30cm – 50cm. And the landscape mode can be used to capture impressive scenic photos, ideal for capturing subjects in the distance.
