We look at two cameras that approach the iconic quadrilateral instant photo from new angles.- Advertisement -
Fujifilm Instax Square SQ10
Best for: Instagram natives
Fujifilm’s first square-frame instant camera is an analog-digital hybrid. Capture up to 50 images with the digital sensor, apply Instagram-like effects and tweaks on the dial switch, then commit only the best shots to film. It’s a bit like a miniature printer, using light to expose the Instax Square film. This hybrid approach means no more wasted shots and unlimited reprints for your friends.
Lomography Lomo’Instant Square
Best for: Artsy lo-fi fanatics
Unfold this uniquely styled camera, peer through its optical viewfinder, and capture square analog gold without dwellling over the ones and zeroes. Controls include exposure compensation, a bulb flash mode for long exposures, and a multiple-exposure option. A close-up lens makes for sharp selfies and colored flash filters let you fine-tune the mood of your shot.
