Highlights of the instax SQUARE SQ10

1. Improved image quality that transforms the everyday into a work of art
The SQ10 is the first instax camera to be equipped with a digital image sensor and image processing technology. These technologies enhance the camera’s ability to take brighter photos in low-light conditions (e.g. indoor and night scenes) and close-up shots from a distance of up to 10 cm with new functions such as automatic exposure control, human detection, and auto-focus.

2. Creative photographic expression with various image editing features
A dynamic range of photographic expression is made possible by combining the three main functions of the ten striking filters with different effects, the dramatic vignette control which can adjust the light intensity at the periphery of the image, and brightness adjustment. Users can either set the functions to be used in advance or after shooting.

3. Easy-to-use and intuitive user interface
The integrated operation dial and buttons on the back of the camera, and the graphic interface which directly displays the image editing status in the LCD monitor enable the SQ10 to realize simple and intuitive operability throughout editing, processing and printing.

Since instax cameras were originally launched in 1998, they have proved extremely popular with users all over the world, with cumulative shipment volumes reaching over 25 million units. This has made instax the leader of the world’s instant photography market over the past several years.

Fujifilm is committed to offering new products and services that meet various consumer needs by leveraging innovative technological advancements. The company is also dedicated to enhancing the enjoyment of photography worldwide, and encouraging users to experience the value of shooting, preserving, displaying and gifting photo images that deliver the message of ''enrich your life with photographs.''
