Fujifilm launches new Hybrid Instant Camera “instax SQUARE SQ20”giant
- Catch and print the best moment and enjoy dynamic photos in a stylish square format
FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) is pleased to announce that it will launch “instax SQUARE SQ20” (SQ20) compatible with square format film as a new addition to the instax series of instant camera line, which allows users to enjoy on-the-spot photo printing. The SQ20 will be available on October 20, 2018. The SQ20 has added a new feature of “Motion Mode” which can print the best moment of moving subjects easily for enjoying dynamic photos, in addition to the characteristic features of image editing and processing. The stylish and easy-to-hold design allows you to take it anywhere, ensuring you never miss a precious moment.
Fujifilm introduced the instax SQUARE SQ10 in May 2017, the first model equipped with a digital image sensor and digital image processing technology. Its diverse image-editing and processing capabilities and its high image quality have made the SQ10 very popular among people around the world, as a square-format instant camera for creative photography.
The SQ20 inherits the basic functions of SQ10 and offers a wide variety of additional functions that allow you to enjoy both taking and printing photos. A new function called the “Motion Mode” allows you to take a video (max 15 seconds) of children or pets, and then easily pick and print your favorite moment of them. The new filter “Sequence” of the Motion Mode can take dynamic and dreamy photos adding sequence effect to the image.
The “Time Shift Collage” can take 4 images with a time lag by pushing a shutter button only once. It allows you to enjoy the new photo shooting experience of taking photos looking at 4 frames having a time lag. The “Collage” shooting mode also stimulates your creativity, in which one frame is divided irregularly and you can shoot different images for each divided frame to make one complete photograph.
The camera has the first zooming function (4.0 x) within the instax series. There is also a self-shot mirror attached to the side of the lens allowing you to check the shooting range.
The camera is stylish, easy-to-hold and easy-to-shoot by placing shutter buttons in both sides of the camera allowing you to shoot with your right or left hand. There are two color variations with matte black to suit any scene and style, and beige for an elegant and fashionable feel.
Since 1998, the instax series product line has been used all over the world and has been particularly embraced by a young demographic. Cumulative shipments have exceeded 30 million units worldwide. Fujifilm will continue to spread the instant photo system “instax,” which allows people across the globe to “enjoy printing photos as they take them.”
