The new SQ6 does away with the digital side of things and is purely for shooting analog square-format Instax film.

Fujifilm has announced the SQ6 - price tag $129.95 - the first square format analog Instax camera, which is available in Graphite Gray, Blush Gold and Pearl White. For those the most part the SQ6 will function similarly to other Fujifilm Instax camera where it will let photographers take photos and print them instantly, but the main difference would be that the format printed will be square. If the shutter speed is set too fast in a photo with flash, the background of the image is very dark. There are three color filters in orange, purple, and green, that can fit over the flash and add a tinge to photos.

The camera includes three unique shooting modes, such as a double exposure mode, macro mode and a landscape mode. The modes allow the camera's autofocus to switch from macro to normal to landscape mode to cover a range of distances. To make it easier to capture selfies, the camera has a small mirror next to the lens. An LED display displays the current shooting mode.

The Instax Square SQ6 will be available is the U.S. from 25 May for $130. The camera uses two CR2/DL lithium batteries.

They said although the reinforcements have helped the security forces, the street to street fight with the Taliban continued. The Afghan Defense Ministry said in a statement Tuesday that Afghan security forces were able to repel their attacks.

Fujifilm also claimed that the camera would be able to take clear and vivid pictures even in a low light environment.

Just previous year, FujiFilm released the Instax SQ10 which, while also printing in square film, was ultimately taking low-res digital and transferring onto analog to save shooting costs.

Fujifilm says the SQ6 release date will be 25 May.
