Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6 launches in South Africa for R1999

Fujifilm has this week launched its new Instax camera in South Africa.

Dubbed the Square SQ6, the little unit can snap photos and then print them in square film format within three minutes.

Getting geeky for a minute, the SQ6 features automatic exposure control, which adjusts flash level and shutter speed based on the available light. Fujifilm notes that this is perfect for capturing moments indoors, or “at a party”.

Other modes are also included.

“The Selfie mode should be popular, since it automatically adjusts brightness and focal length to the ideal setting, while the selfie mirror allows one to check the capture area in a mirror next to the lens,” the company adds in a press release.

“A Macro mode allows users to capture beautiful close-up images of subjects as close as 30cm, and the Landscape mode can be used to capture impressive scenic photos. Group photos are made easy with the built-in timer and the added tripod socket located at the bottom of the camera.”

But with that said, it’s clear Fujifilm’s marketing the Square SQ6 as a cutesy fashion item too. The camera is available in three colours, notably Blush Gold, Graphite Grey and Pearl White.

As for the price? Its RRP is set at R1999, while the Square film can be bought in packs of ten or 20.
