Summer Travels with my Fujifilm Instax Camera

My summer was full of exciting travels to Cuba and New York and I loved documenting all of the moments along the way with my Instax Square SQ10 by Fujifilm.  This hybrid camera is both digital and prints instant film so you have the ability to edit and choose which photo you want to print.

With this dual capability you can print multiple pictures of the same photo.   The other fun feature is that you can add filters like Instagram – making your image more saturated, sepia tone, black and white, ect.

Here is a collage of printed pics and below is the digital version.  Having both options is genius and a total game changer!  Taking pictures in Cuba was a photographers dream.  There was beautiful colors and texture everywhere mixed with nostalgia, so the polaroid quality was the perfect way to capture Havana.

It also offers image effects like vignettes, brightness adjustment, and double exposure.  I had some fun taking a picture of a building and palm trees, then layering it for the double exposure effect.

The Instax Square SQ10 camera fits perfectly in a world of instant gratification where you can share those moments without waiting to order prints.

 Another other cool feature with the Instax Square SQ10 is how it prints.  You can see the photo  processing on the monitor as the print comes out.

I couldn’t resist taking a picture of this stylish boy in Cuba with his sweet pup and I printed a picture so he could keep one.

Next stop, NYC!

This is also a great camera for kids because they can shoot away and you don’t have to worry about them using up the film.  It’s so user friendly my 10 year old knew how to navigate it within minutes.  I let Mateo snap away in the costume exhibit at the Met.  I think he had fun with the collection of avant garde Comme des Garcon clothing and wild wigs.

Like most people I just take pictures on my Iphone, but it’s nice to switch it up and have a real camera to capture all of the memories.  Finally with the Instax Square SQ10 you don’t have to wait to print the pictures of your favorite moments.
