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, face recognition, and auto-focus.
2. Creative photographic expression with various image editing features
A dynamic range of photographic expression is made possible by combining three main functions of ten striking filters with different effects, the dramatic vignette control which can adjust the light intensity at the periphery of the image (19 steps), and brightness adjustment (19 steps). 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 buttons on the back of the camera and the graphic interface which directly displays the image editing status in the LCD monitor enable the simple and intuitive operability through editing/processing and printing.
