Fujifilm's new Instax Square SQ1 instant camera will do social distancing very fun and interesting.
Instead of adding more technology like the monitor and Bluetooth he added to Instax Mini LiPlay last year, Fujifilm made SQ1 as simple as possible.
There are only three settings that you can control with a ring around the lens. The first step allows you to turn on the camera. The second rotation activates the function Selfie, while if you rotate it to the top it closes. There is not even an option to turn off the flash, as it is always on and on with each shot. At the back, a small window at the bottom right lets you know how many shots are left.
Using Instax SQ1 is like using a game, since it does not require any thought. Point the camera at an object, press the large shutter button on the front, and a square image with the melody of a high-frequency hum will immediately unfold.
The simple appearance and ease of use of the SQ1 are what make a camera an Instax camera, and it seems that Fujifilm has managed to balance advanced technology with a classic design, without displays and unnecessary functions.
Of course, as is often the case with any device, it has its drawbacks, and in this case it is the price of $ 119,95. Since every photo you take with this camera will cost extra money, such a high price is a bit excessive.
If simplicity and minimalism are what expresses you, the Instax Square SQ1 will be available in October starting at $ 119,95 and will be available in 3 colors: terracotta orange, glacier blue and chalk white.
