FujiFilm instax SQUARE SQ20

FujiFilm instax SQUARE SQ20 instant film camera

Instax SQUARE SQ20 is the new addition to the instax “SQUARE” format product range of instant cameras. The SQ20 is a hybrid between analogue and digital.

The SQ20 sports a wide variety of useful features that allows you to enjoy both taking and printing photos. In addition to shooting still images, a new function called “Motion Mode” allows you to shoot a video of a moving subject (up to 15 seconds), select a frame and easily print the best moment—something that has been difficult to achieve before.

The “Time Shift Collage” feature brings a new photo shooting experience by taking four images in a different time-frame, with one click. The special filter “Sequence” can take dynamic photos by adding sequence effects to the image. The camera is also the first in the instax product range to receive a digital zoom.

In addition, there is also a selfie mirror located to the side of the lens — for perfectly framed selfies.

Another bonus for a hybrid instant camera equipped with a digital image sensor and digital image processing technology is the built-in photo editor — edit your favorite images before printing, providing the opportunity for a wide variety of creative photographic expression.

The Instax SQUARE SQ20 comes in two color variations with matte black to suit any scene and style, and glossy beige for an elegant and fashionable feel. The design of the lens ring—and around the ring—is reminiscent of a water ripple. It not only makes the camera easy to hold but demonstrates a contemporary new design.
