The Fujifilm Instax SQ1 has landed to offer a new, enticingly affordable new option for those who like the charm of its Instax Square movie.
The best instant camera for beginners looking to get into retro photography has long been the Fujfilm Instax Mini 11, which is also a great choice as a camera for kids.

In our full Fujifilm Instax SQ1 review, we said, “The Fujifilm Instax SQ1 is hard to beat, bridging a price gap between the base Instax Mini 11 and the more advanced Instax SQ6 without too many compromises.”
We added, “It’s undoubtedly simple, which the more creative photographers might dislike, but still delivers punchy photos with the trademark charm we’ve come to expect.”
One of the main advantages of the new Instax SQ1 is that it combines the simplicity of Fuji’s simpler Instax models with the ability to shoot on Instant Square film, which offers a more authentic retro experience than the cheaper Instax Mini format.
As our review found, “By providing large format instant film for those who want to start out in the medium, the Instax SQ1 gives beginners more choices when choosing their first camera.”
The Fujifilm Instax SQ1 will be available on September 30th for £ 119.99 (approximately $ 155 / AU $ 210). This makes him a possible contender for the Christmas stocking obligation, if you can bear to think that far ahead. It will also be available in three colors: Glacier Blue, Terracotta Orange and Chalk White.
