Fujifilm has expanded the range of its square format instant camera lineup by releasing the stunning Instax SQ6. Instax Square SQ6 is an instant camera which allows users to enjoy on-the-spot photo printing. The Instax SQ6 is compatible with square format films. The various shooting functions, simple stylish design, and the square format prints make the SQ6 the absolute style statement. The very lightweight and the compact body design makes it easy to carry wherever you go.
The Instax Square SQ6 has a variety of functions that will curate a unique experience for the users. Automatic exposure adjustment feature is one of them that gets activated when the shutter button is pressed. The camera detects the ambient brightness and adjusts to provide the optimum shutter speed and flash light intensity; using its flash you can also take vivid photos in the low or dark light conditions.
This is not just all, for the selfie lovers, the Instax SQ6 comes with a selfie mode that automatically adjusts brightness and focal length to the ideal level for capturing best selfie images for you. You can check the shooting range with the help of self-shot mirror attached to the side of the lens.
The SQ6 can also be mounted on the tripod, it has holes at the bottom of the camera which can be used to mount it on the tripod and using its timer feature you can easily take the group photos by choosing the pre-defined up to 10 seconds time delay.
Furthermore, to add appropriate drama to the picture, this camera has three modes. The “Double Exposure Mode” allows two photos to be overlapped on a single film when the shutter button is pressed twice, the “Macro Mode” can take short-range photos up to a minimum of 30cm, and the “Landscape Mode” can be used to take long-range landscape photos. It also includes three flash colour filters (orange/purple/green) that once placed over the flash will change the colour of the overall photo, allowing the user to achieve a more unique and textured photo.
