The Instax SQ20 has added a new feature of “Motion Mode” which can print the best moment of moving subjects easily for enjoying dynamic photos, in addition to the characteristic features of image editing and processing. The stylish and easy-to-hold design allows you to take it anywhere, ensuring you never miss a precious moment.
The Instax SQ20 offers a wide variety of functions that allow you to enjoy both taking and printing photos. In addition to normal shooting for still images, a new function called “Motion Mode” allows you to take a video (max 15 seconds), use a dial on the backside of the camera, and easily print the best moment of moving subjects - something that has been difficult to achieve previously. The “Time Shift Collage” can take 4 images with a time difference - all at once - by pushing a single shutter button. It allows you to enjoy the new photo shooting experience that takes photos looking at 4 images having a time difference at one time. The special filter “Sequence” can take dynamic and dreamy photos adding sequence effects to the image. The camera has the first zooming function before shooting within the Instax series. There is also a self-shot mirror attached to the side of the lens allowing you to check the shooting range. As a hybrid instant camera, which is equipped with a digital image sensor and digital image processing technology, the camera allows you to select your favourite images before printing and to edit the images with various filters. With the benefits of a hybrid instant camera, a wide variety of photographic expression can be made even with the same image.
The camera is stylish and easy-to-hold. There are two colour variations with matte black to suit any scene and style, and beige for an elegant and fashionable feel. The design of the lens ring - and around the ring - is reminiscent of water ripples. It not only makes the camera easy to hold but is also a contemporary design feature.
Shooting photos looking at the LCD monitor, selecting your favourite images before printing
The results of all operations throughout shooting, editing/processing and printing are displayed on the LCD monitor. The camera also allows you to select your favourite images before printing.
Moving subjects can also be taken easily and dynamic photos can be printed
By taking a video (max 15 seconds) and using the dial on the back-side of the camera, the camera allows you to print easily the best moment of moving subjects that are often difficult to take.
Time Shift Collage
This function can take 4 images with a time difference at one time pushing a shutter button only once. It allows you to enjoy the new photo shooting experience that takes photos looking at 4 images having a time difference at one time. The time difference among images can be adjusted up to 2.0 seconds by 0.2 seconds.
Special filter “Sequence”
This function allows you to take dynamic and dreamy photos adding sequence effect to the image.
Enjoy editing videos as well as still images adding a filter effect
There are a wide variety of editing functions such as various filters including partial colour filter function, vignette control, and brightness adjustment. With these kinds of editing effects, various types of shooting and printing can be made for both video and still images.
A wide variety of photographic expression can be made with double exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image. and bulb mode
The camera has special shooting modes such as double exposure that can combine two images onto one film by pushing the shutter twice, while the bulb exposure function is useful for night scenes and light marks.
4.0 x digital zoom
The camera has the first zooming function before shooting within Instax series.
A self-shot mirror attached to the side of the lens allows you to check the shooting range.
Stylish and sophisticated design
The camera has an iconic design and a thin, round, symmetrical shape for easy holding. It has a dual shutter system with two shutter buttons – one on the right and one on the left. The design of lens ring and around the ring that looks like water ripples not only makes the camera easy to hold but is also a great part of the design.
- 1/5-in., CMOS Image Sebsir with primary colour filter
- 1920 x 1920 Effective PixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints.s

- Fixed as 33.4mm (35-mm format equivalent) focal lengthFOCAL LENGTHMeasured in mm, it is the distance from the focal point of a lens (its centre or curved mirror where light converges) to the plane of the image sensor (film) when an object is in focus. A shorter focal length lens sees a wider image and a longer focal length brings your subject closer. For example, a 15mm lens sees a very wide image and is perfect for landscape photography. Conversely, a 500mm lens sees a very narrow image, brings the subject much closer and is thus great for subjects that are far away, like a bird in a tree. With zoom lenses, its minimum and maximum focal lengths are indicated, for example, as 24-105mm. A zoom lens allows you to change the lens’ focal length, with shorter (wide-angle) and longer (telephoto) options, whereas a fixed focal length lens requires you to move back and forth to find the correct image composition. with f/2.4 apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur.

- ISO ISO Exposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. The ISO speed determines how sensitive a camera's sensor is to incoming light. A higher ISO speed absorbs more light, resulting in a brighter exposure, however, a higher ISO also results in more digital noise in low-light conditions. Cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) typically have higher ISO speed capability and produce less digital noise at high ISO settings. Digital cameras include a control for adjusting ISO speed, some of which can be set to adjust automatically in combination with certain other exposure settings. ISO is indicated in numbers usually starting at 100 and going upward (200, 400, 800, 1600 etc.) doubling in sensitivity each time. Most cameras also indicate 3rd stop intervals (100, 125, 180, 200 etc.)100 to 1600 (Auto)
1/7500 sec. to 1/2 sec. (Auto), maximum 10 sec. in Bulb mode shutter speedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time. For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc.
