We got our hands on the brand new Instax SQ1: an easy-to-use instant camera that shoots square format film. Despite a couple of quirks, we think it’s a camera that photographers and non-photographers alike will find fun to use.
The Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 is a full-frame mirrorless camera but in a body smaller than the Micro Four Thirds GH5. It includes updates to Panasonic’s DFD autofocus system, creative photo modes, and video features that come close to matching the more expensive S1H.
