Fans of instant film will be happy to know Fujifilm will be adding a new addition to their Instax line this May. The Instax Square SQ10 not only features square film a-la-Poloroid (or Instagram for you young folk), but it also features a screen and lets you decide which shots you actually want to print. The SQ10 also takes a queue from the Lomo Instant by adding options for double exposures along with some Instagram-esque filters.
The film purist in me is a bit irked at the lack of authenticity in digitally altering the prints before they’re actually printed, but the broke photographer in me is also pumped about the prospect of saving film for the perfect shots.
The last print-on-demand instant camera I was hyped about was the Polaroid Z2300 back in 2012, but I heard nothing but terrible reviews due to the image quality and how quickly the film fades. I love my Fuji Instax Wide, but I’ll remain skeptical on this one.
The Fujifilm Instax Square SQ10 drops May 8, 2017 and will set you back $279. Pre-orders are currently up on Amazon.
