- New Analog SQUARE Instant Camera to complement the instax Line Up

New Delhi, 16 September, 2020: Fujifilm India Private Limited, a pioneer in imaging technologies, today announced the launch of its instax SQUARE SQ1 Instant Camera. This new addition is an analog, square camera and creates square format instant prints at 1.5 times the size of its instax mini counterparts. With the Instax SQUARE SQ1, the company has introduced a minimalist, user-friendly square design with key features such as automatic exposure and one-touch selfie mode.

One of the key features of the new addition to this Instax range is its automatic exposure. This function automatically senses the level of ambient light when the shutter button is pressed, and optimizes the shutter speed and flash output according to lighting conditions. It allows even novice instax users to take photos that are automatically properly exposed regardless of conditions, producing clearer and more vibrant instant prints on the spot.

Along with its built-in selfie mirror, instax SQUARE SQ1’s one-touch selfie mode is designed specifically for selfies and close-up shots, setting the best focus and exposure for the shot by changing the position of the lens when activated (by simply twisting the lens after powering the camera on).

Commenting on the launch Mr. Masaki Zenko, Head of Instax division and Senior manager of Photo Imaging division, Fujifilm India said, “At Fujifilm, we believe that capturing moments that invoke nostalgia has become even more imperative in today’s time, as it truly seizes the moment for our consumers and spreads joy to the their daily life. We are thrilled to expand our wide range of Instax cameras with the funkiest and newest Instax SQUARE SQ1. Our latest edition combines everything our users love about the mini’s cool, modern style and functionality with the larger, vibrant output of our square film. We’re confident that instax SQUARE SQ1 will fit right in with our creative, expressive user base and allow them to create compelling new instant prints.”

“The new Instax SQUARE SQ1 is the perfect amalgamation of olden day’s nostalgia with respect to its films and the quirkiness of the new-age times with respect to its sleek design. The compact and durable camera efficiently develops larger square print in just 90 seconds, instantly creating tangible memories for the users. The sharp and suave design of the new model, will certainly make this camera a hit amongst not only the female youth but also the male millennials, making it there go-to accessory when choosing an Instant camera of their choice. With its new twisty selfie mode, users will be able to fit wide captures in excellent color quality that will transit them to the exact moment and help them cherish the memory forever.” – added Mr. Kunal Girotra, National Business Manager Instax Division, Fujifilm India.
