The Instax Square SQ6 follows the SQ10 digital-analog hybrid camera and uses 1:1 format instant film.

(CCM) — Fujifilm North America has unveiled its first fully analog camera for its square format instant film.

The Instax Square SQ6 offers five program modes: an auto mode for flash photography which balances the shutter speed with the ambient light and flash; a selfie mode which adjusts the focus and flash for taking photographs at arms' length; a macro mode for taking close-ups of plants and other subjects as close as 11.8 inches from the camera; a double exposure mode; and a landscape mode for taking pictures at a distance. An LED on the rear of the camera displays the current shooting mode.

The camera is targeted at casual photographers and is available in a choice of pearl white, blush gold, and graphite grey. A front mounted mirror is designed to help users compose selfies, and the flash is supplied with orange, purple, and green gels to color the scenes it illuminates.

The Instax Square SQ6 captures 2.4-inch square images, which can be captured using a shutter speed ranging from 1.6 seconds to 1/400th of a second and a 65.75mm lens. It is powered by two CR2/DL lithium batteries and will be on sale from May 25, 2018 in the U.S. and Canada, priced at $129.95 and $159.99 respectively. .
