The Fujifilm Instax Square SQ1 is an instant camera with loads of appeal. It's a pure point-and-shoot, easy enough to pass off to a friend for a snapshot. The camera itself is on the bulky side, at 5.2 by 4.7 by 2.3 inches (HWD)

Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
Fujifilm Instax SQ1 is a new middle ground in its instant camera range. It combines the ease of use of Fuji's more basic models with larger, square format film. The fixed focus lens makes the SQ1 best suited to portraits and middle-distance subjects. It's hard to beat for sheer value, filling a gap between the basic Instax Mini 11 and the more advanced SQ6.

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Fujifilm Instax SQ1 is the brand's latest instant camera. There are no settings, no control over the flash and only a duo of shooting modes. This camera uses the Instax Square film (62mm x 62mm image area) which is larger than the film used by the cheaper Mini range of Instax cameras.
