Social media has made it easier than ever to share snaps of friends, gorgeous landscapes, and whatever you’re having for lunch. But years back, such sharing wasn’t done online – you gave someone an actual physical photograph.
The Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6 ($US130) harks back to that halcyon age with its resolutely analogue stance. This instant snapper has no truck with Wi-Fi and digital, instead shooting to square-format film, and after about 90 seconds spitting out a dinky 62mm square photo. The camera has additional smarts, too: colour filters, macro and double exposure modes, a ten-second timer for group selfies, auto-exposure, and a high-performance flash that automatically adjusts the shutter speed to ensure your image isn’t a gloomy mess.
Given that the pics work out at about $2 each, that last one’s probably just as well.
