    Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6 Announcement


    It may seem ironic that the camera which resembles the logo of one of the most popular social media is in fact one of very few devices from which we will not be able to post any photographs on social media (maybe apart from the scans). Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6, as this is the camera that we're talking about, is a fully analog camera for instant photography. 


    SQ6 records images in the 1:1 format, with the dimensions of 61mm x 61mm, using Instax inserts, which we got to know last year, along with the presentation of Fujifilm Instax Square SQ10 - a digital predecessor of  SQ6. Instax inserts with black rims are a novelty.

    In the automatic exposure adjustment mode,  SQ6 will do all the work for us. The camera will examine the conditions in which we would like to take a photograph and it will, on the basis of the obtained information,  adjust proper shutter speed within the range of 1.6 s to 1/400 s. It will also decide about the necessity of using flash and its power.

    The camera is equipped with 7 photography modes. One of them is the self-portrait mode, which will enter optimal focus and brightness settings. A small mirror placed near the camera's lens will be very helpful in better framing of selfies.

    In the Macro mode, we will be able to take photographs from the distance of 30cm and in the landscape mode - from the distance of more than 2m.  The double exposure mode will help in placing 2 photographs on one another, the D (dark) mode will darken and the L (light) mode will brighten the photographs. The camera is equipped with the buttons which enable turning off the flash. On the rear wall, we will find a self-timer button.

    There are also some curiosities: 3 colorful filters placed on the flash - purple, orange and green, with the use of which we will be able to obtain an artistic atmosphere of the "old polaroid" photographs. 



    5). Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6


    Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6 is almost square, its dimensions are 118.7 x 128.1 x 58.1mm and it weighs 393g. The camera can be mounted on a tripod. SQ6 will be available in 3 color versions: white pearl, poppy red gold and graphite. It will appear on sale on May 25, 2018.

      Fujifilm released firmware update version 4.01 for the Fujifilm X-T2 camera that basically rolled back the previous firmware 4.0 due to several "malfunctions". Additional information on the reported issues can be found at FujiAddict:
      Fujifilm has just presented a long-awaited medium-format lens - GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR. Apart from the lens, the GF 1.4X TC WR teleconverter and the MCEX-18G WR 18mm and MCEX-45G WR 45mm macro rings have also had their premieres.

      Fujinon GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR is a construction consisting of 16 elements placed in 11 groups. Among them we can find two lenses made of ED glass and one made of Super ED glass. The lens has a 9-blade aperture with the maximum light of f/4. With the focal length of 250mm, which is the equivalent of 200mm for full-frame frame, we can expect perfect background blurring. 

      The new lens has been equipped with a quiet and quick autofocus and a new mechanism for adjusting the position of the linear motor.  Its minimum focus distance is 1.4 metres. Apart from that, the lens is equipped with the image stabilization with the 5-grade vibration reducing.
