If prolific and reliable camera news leaker Nokishita is correct – and the Japanese outlet often is – we could be seeing another one of Fujifilm’s excellent Instax instant cameras on cabinets quickly.
Nokishita says the camera will likely be referred to as the Instax Square SQ1 and, if true, it will likely be the first SQ collection instant camera to be launched since the Instax Square SQ6 and SQ20 approach again in 2018. In the meantime, Fujifilm has been expanding its Instax Mini vary, with the Instax Mini 11 joining the ranks in March 2020.
No technical specs of the rumored SQ1 have been revealed as yet, however Nokishita has unearthed some product pictures of the new camera.
Squaring it up
All we all know for now are that the Instax Square SQ1 will are available (a minimum of) three different colors – Chalk White, Terracotta Orange and Glacier Blue – and can have a design that is a little bit completely different to the older Sq. fashions.
The place the Instax Square SQ10 had very rounded edges, the SQ6 and SQ20 took a much less curvy route. However, the SQ1 will seemingly have sharp corners, and enjoyable colors we’re used to seeing in the Mini line-up.
The ‘Square’ in the identify of the SQ collection comes from the size of the image space. The place the Mini prompt cameras produce small-format pictures measuring 46mm × 62mm (or 54mm × 86mm for those who embrace the white border), the Square movies are wider with a picture space of 62mm x 62mm (86mm x 72mm with the border).
Both Mini and Square cameras (and movies) produce comparable image qualities and price about the identical as effectively, so which instant camera you choose will rely in your choice for picture dimension.
There’s no indication of when we can anticipate the SQ1, and neither do we’ve any clue as to how a lot it is going to value, however we’ll keep our ear to the bottom and allow you to know as quickly as we’ve official phrase.
