Another outing with the Fujifilm Instax SQ10
I got out for a stroll around neighborhoods east of Georgetown’s Town Square yesterday.
My original plan was to shoot the monthly Pistons on the Square car show with the newest camera in my collection, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 – and that did happen – but I also brought the Fujifilm Instax SQ10 to fiddle with, as I’ve not yet really put it through its paces.
The SQ10 is a cool little camera, but it poses some challenges… it doesn’t have a viewfinder and the rear-facing LCD is so small that it really makes it hard to frame-up a shot with any kind of accuracy.
I’m not totally fluent with the interface and the shutter button system, so getting used to how the camera operates will take some time.
It’s great to be able to take shots without printing right away. I’m still working on determining the difference between what I see on-screen and in a print of that edited image. I’m finding some of my prints are a lot darker than what I see on the LCD.
I like this camera a bunch. I’m sure it won’t take long to conquer these small annoyances.
