Fujifilm brings the new Instax SQUARE SQ20 to Photokina 2018, an instant hybrid camera that allows you to print immediately – in a 62x62mm square format.
Among the new features, Motion Mode is definitely worth mentioning, where it is possible to print “dynamic photos” of moving subjects taken in videos of up to 15 seconds saved on the microSD. In practice, you can select your favorite video frames by printing them quickly.
Fujifilm SQUARE SQ10 was launched in 2017, the SQ20 incorporates the main technical features and enriches with additional features: Motion Mode, for example, also includes the Sequence filter to add dynamic effects to photos. The other filters in Motion Mode are Film Frame (to reproduce the effects of a scene from a film) and Retro, which adds the “noise” of the old films. Time Shift Collage uses four images taken in sequence by pressing the shutter once.
Shooting modes are different: Standard (with auto flash), Bulb (for low light images), Double Exposure (two images in the same photo), Split (divides the frame into a regular pattern by taking several pictures), Collage (splits the frame irregularly), Time Shift Collage (4 images sequentially shot every 0.2-2 seconds).
Instax SQUARE SQ20 is also the first instant camera in the Instax series to be equipped with 4x zoom, and there is even a selfie mirror positioned to the right of the lens. The cam will be available in black and beige matte colors starting from October at a price not yet revealed.
It measures 119x127x50mm and weighs 450 grams. It has a 2.7-inch LCD screen and takes 12 seconds to print a 62x62mm photo. The image is taken by a 1920×1920 pixel CMOS sensor with f2.4 aperture and fixed focal length (35mm equivalent).
