Fujifilm seems to enjoy experimenting ways in which they can incorporate new technologies in Instax cameras and the latest one, the Instax Square SQ20, is a testament to that – the camera not only shoots digital images but also video now.
Thing is it can only record 15 seconds worth of 800 x 800 H.264 video at 15fps. Soundless, that is. It might not sound like a lot but it can make for great videos for social media platforms like Instagram.
But that’s not all there is to it – the video feature is designed to be used alongside the “motion mode”, which allows you to go through your footage and find that perfect frame that you can turn into a photo.
The Instax Square SQ20 has a CMOS sensor that creates instant film photos and a 2.7 inch LCD screen, a micro SDHC card slot and enough internal storage for 50 photos and 30 seconds of video.

The lens is a 33.4mm f/2.4 and the camera features built-in flash and a battery that can deliver about 100 prints per each charge.
The camera will debut on the market on October 20 and will have a starting price of $199.
