Photo: Post your Instax Square photos

Not sure how many members are using the SQ10 right now, but how about a dedicated thread for Instax Square photos?

To kick it off...









First two were scanned with Google PhotoScan app. All of them were shot with SQ10.

Try again.

Can't say that the camera itself appeals, but the film is interesting. I wonder how hard it would be to bodge a back for my Hassie 500C?

Though I do like SQ10 as camera, I agree the square format film is the most intriguing part of the development and I assume there will be more conventional camera for the format in near future. I'm sure anything is possible, but because it is chemical squeezing film pack like Polaroid 600 minus battery pack, not peel-apart, I have to assume the mechanism of the film-back will have to be quite complicated.

I guess 3rd party can make their own body, camera, or film-back if it's OK with Fuji (or that they don't need Fuji's OK). Love to see how the format/platform develops.

Still no word on an Australian release so I might have to hit eBay.

Really loving these shots. I recently received an Instax Wide as a gift and am loving it so far.

I've been gaining a lot of inspiration from Noah Waldeck's work -- you should check him out and see some really great shots.

I'm thinking of getting one. I have a land camera and several boxes of film still and love shooting with it. Be nice to have a smaller instant camera.

How about black cat photos in the mean time! Got plenty of those on my iPhone.

I find it hard to get excited about a crap little digital P&S, even if it does have an instant-film printer built in.

I have SX-70 (in fact two of them) from the time they weren't crazy expensive hipster machine and shot a lot, but I ran out of original Polaroid packs long ago and I'm just not feeling the Impossible Project's iteration of film packs though I admire their efforts. I've had a peel-apart film back for Hassy when I had the camera, but the overall size and handling kept me away from using it regularly.

I think, with the backing of Fuji's successful Instax business, I should be able to enjoy the format for years to come without worrying about the whole system going away, and I like the overall size very much.

I'm sure there will be more conventional purely film camera using this film, and I might be getting one of those at some point in the future.

Here, have another black cat photo in the meantime.


SQ10.

Having 2 shutter release buttons is actually nice and handy.

I'm trying to shoot at least one picture everyday with time stamp. Love to look back in a year or two.


SQ10.

Agreed. Maybe when and if they release a fully analog square model...
