Aunque los cartuchos de fotos son caros, valen la pena.
This IS NOT a digital camera that also happens to print images.
This IS an Instax instant camera that also happens to have some digital controls.
I'll explain a few gripes to better explain what I mean by the above:
1. Images in the camera's internal memory cannot be accessed via USB to PC. That is port for charging only.
2. This part is particularly strange. You can access your images with a microSD card. However, those images will be unedited originals. Filters, vignette, and/or brightness control can only be seen on the camera's LCD screen and in printed pictures. If you access the image via memory card in your computer, you will not see the filters, vignette, and/or brightness edits. Along with the images, you will also see a series of corresponding spreadsheets. Open one, and you will see the filter, vignette, and exposure settings.
There is one completely unacceptable problem with this camera. Printed images are ALWAYS overexposed in relation to the image preview, and I don't mean the brightness difference between an LCD screen and a printed image. I'm referring to the light exposure difference between previews and prints. Printed pictures always appear washed out. To properly expose images, you need to adjust the brightness down 1/3 a step (i.e., if the preview is properly exposed when the dial is set to 0, it should be set to -1/3 to prevent the print from being overexposed.) This -1/3 downstep seems to be consistent across most of the images I have printed, which leads me to believe there is a software issue somewhere in the camera (the paranoid cynic in me really believes this is a scheme by Fuji to make us reprint images, thereby making us buy film more often.) I'm hoping this issue will be fixed in a firmware update.
There also seems to be an overall sweet spot in screen-to-print accuracy of somewhere between -1 to 0. Anything below -1 will be underexposed, regardless of what you can see on the screen. Anything above (and sometimes at) 0 will be overexposed, regardless of what you see on the screen (this is comorbid with the overexposure problem from above.)
One final gripe I have is the price of the film. Instax Mini film is ~$10 a pack. Instax Wide film is ~$10 a pack. Instax square film (which, incidentally, is smaller than the wide film) is $17. I understand that new is always more expensive, so I hope that over time the price will go down.
Done with the gripes. Now, the camera does a lot very well.
1. It's fun! If you're familiar with Instax cameras, you'll know what this is about. The added customization options make it even better.
2. Even though the film is more expensive per pack, you could possibly save money in the long run (not withstanding the overexposure problem.) Take the picture, retake as needed, edit, THEN print. The analogue versions of Instax cameras can sometimes run through three or four exposures before getting the picture right.
3. No need to carry film with you. Take the pictures, print later.
4. Hidden bonus - the SQ10 is also a handy Instagram printer. The skull print in the attached image was taken with a Google Pixel and saved from from my Instagram feed. The rest were taken from the camera itself.
Overall, I enjoy the camera. Most of my gripes come from my imagination/assumptions building the camera into something it isn't. If you expect it to be exactly what it is (Instax, edit, then print), you will be very happy with it. The overexposure problem is a significant issue and needs to be fixed.
It's not an analog camera with a large, slow lens, like the SX-70, Spectra & SLR680 cameras that I own and have used over the past 10+ years. It's a digital camera (small sensor and lens) with a built-in printer. The images have a small digital sensor look: which also means they are sharp and you can see reasonably fine detail which I've never seen with my other instant cameras. Color prints are wonderful, with vibrant colors, and you can use the "Highline" setting to make a more vintage-looking print, but I'm not impressed with the monochrome or sepia settings. The biggest advantage, or course, is to just take pictures and figure out which ones to print later. Or make a few as you go, and simply delete all those out-of-focus or bad pictures that you would have to waste film on with a purely analog camera (which I expect will arrive, and will have a lens similar to those on current Instax Mini cameras). You can save and print the digital images, and you can load digital files taken with other cameras onto the SQ10 and print them out onto instant film. The digital files are small, and as you might expect look like they were taken with a point & shoot digital camera, but are good enough for 4x6 and 8x8 prints. I've loaded files from my iPhone and a bunch of different digital cameras onto the SQ10 using a MicroSD card. They will all print, and while they will have a different look they aren't better, which attests to how well Fujifilm have matched the camera part of the SQ10 to the printer portion. However, it works a lot better with Fuji cameras, because the file format for the SQ10 is the same as for other Fuji digital cameras. For other cameras you have to change the file name, which is OK, but it had an issue whereby it would only "see" three files at a time, no matter how many I placed onto the MicroSD card. If you own a Fuji digital camera then you are in better shape. I placed a MicroSD card (in an adapter) into my X100T and shot a bunch of pictures, then simply placed the MicroSD card into the SQ10. This time it recognized all the photos taken, and I still had the original 16GB files of the X100T to play with.
One feature of the SQ10 that I think should be highlighted is the ability to zoom an image when you want to print, because there is no loss of quality in the Instax print. This is significant, because it means that in effect you have a 28-60 equivalent lens, not just a wide angle one. I've found this feature very useful, because of the small size of the prints, when it comes to pictures of friends & family and being able to optimize the framing during the printing stage.
On the flip-side, the built-in flash is just like all such flashes, and gives a harsh look which I don't personally like.
Also, while the camera focuses accurately, it's not super-fast, which makes the SQ10 great for static subjects but poor for action shots. Just use another camera and transfer the file to the SQ10 in that situation.
This is a great camera if your primary aim is to make Instant/Instax prints. The colors are fantastic, the images are sharp, you can zoom and change the color balance, and you don't have to print crappy pictures or people with their eyes closed. For me this is so much better than a purely analog camera where you will have to print every time you trip the shutter. Yes, with an analog camera each instant print will be unique, but you can use the SQ10 like that too if you deleted each file after making just one print. If your primary aim is end up with large and/or RAW digital files use something else. If your main aim is to post onto Instagram and the like, use a mobile phone. Or you can use your phone to take a picture of an Instax print and post that, it actually works just fine!
Hope this review will be helpful.
I WANT to give this 5 stars. It's a great camera, in many ways. However, the prints are darker than the LCD screen shows, on the back of the camera. So I'm dropping it to a 4. Thankfully, there are editing controls and I can brighten the photos before printing them, but this is a guessing game a bit, since the accuracy is off.
Things that I love:
~ the melding of the digital and instant world. It's great to view & edit the photos before printing.
~ the size and shape. It feels old school and I love that. It's also easy for kids to hold, though reaching their finger to the front shutter release button took some help.
~ the size of the prints. As far as I could tell, this was the largest print (aside from old Polaroids) on the market. It's still a small print, but bigger than most others, so I'll take it.
~ there are a few options for cases and they're adorable. I hope to purchase one sooner than later.
All in all I highly recommend this camera, even though it's more expensive than the other instant camera options. In the end, the fact that we can select which images to print and which to ditch, will save us money. No wasted film!
Absolute crap product and experience.
Some shortcomings: 1. the only way to take out the pictures or to put pictures from your phone is to use SD card. So you have to put in SD card (mini) and have an SD card reader on your computer to transfer pictures between the camera and your phone. 2. The camera only reads original pictures. It means if you pre-edit the picture on your phone first, and move it to the camera, the camera won't read it. Also it has to be pictures taken by your phone camera, not some pictures you downloaded online.
Overall I think it's a great camera, especially for those who like instant cameras but also don't want to waste lots of films. I've used it a lot when traveling and put the pictures in my journals (they look so beautiful in the journals). The only complaint is about transferring pictures between the camera and my phone. I hope in the future there would be a new model that allows Bluetooth and reads pre-edited picture.
