If you’ve ever thought, I’d love to take a selfie and not share it with 1000 people but only to the the friends I’m with right now, Fujifilm has a new camera for you. The instax SQUARE SQ40 ($150). Even the lowercase and uppercase product names tell you it’s a hipster thing.
It’s a simple, square black and silver camera that fits in the palm of your hand. Reminiscent of those old-time film cameras.
And it doesn’t stop there. This nifty device is more than just a pretty face. It’s got automatic exposure, so you don’t have to be Ansel Adams to get a good shot. Just point, click, and let the SQ40 do the rest.
For those of you who like to get up close and personal, it’s got a selfie mode. Yes, you heard that right. A selfie mode. Because nothing says ‘I’m living in the moment’ like taking a photo of yourself and then immediately printing it out.
The SQ40 uses instax SQUARE film. It’s like the Polaroid film you remember, but better. Each photo is 2.4 x 2.4 inches of glossy goodness. The best part is that you don’t have to shake it like a Polaroid picture. Just give it a few minutes, and your photo will develop right before your eyes.
Fujifilm has pricedthe SQ40 at a reasonable $150. Totally reasonable considering it’d be a fun thing to keep around at parties. It also comes with a pack of film, so you can start snapping away as soon as you open the box.
If you want to relive the glory days of instant film, the Fujifilm instax SQUARE SQ40 might just be the camera for you. It’s retro, it’s stylish, and it’s a whole lot of fun. Just don’t forget to buy extra film. Trust me, you’re going to need it.
