See it, shoot it, print it: Top four instant cameras

Instant cameras are a growing trend and can capture the moment instantly with hard copy photo prints, whether at parties or on a vacation! This year has seen instant cameras make a major comeback. These spur-of-the-moment snappers are often referred to as “Polaroid” cameras, after the brand that brought them to mainstream fame in the 1980s, but several brands have models available.

Fujifilm InstaxSquare SQ10
Fujifilm's latest instant camera is also the first hybrid square-format shooter. It has a digital sensor and new built-in image processing technologies. These help capture sharp and color-rich photos and maintain brightness levels in low light, as well as helping the autofocus track moving subjects. . The Fujifilm Instax Square SQ10 is out now priced Rs 18038. A 10-sheet pack of film costs Rs 1095.

Polaroid Snap Touch
No pick of instant cameras would be complete without a model from the format's pioneer, Polaroid, which is still present in the market with the Snap Touch. This compact camera fits comfortably in the hand and has a 13-Megapixel sensor and a 3.5-inch touchscreen, which is handy for cropping photos or applying filters. The Polaroid Snap Touch is priced Rs 11595. A 50-sheet pack of film costs about Rs 1610.

The Lomo'Instant Wide is a large-format instant camera. It has a range of interchangeable lenses (from ultra-wide-angle to close-up options) for shooting creative photos in all circumstances. The Lomography Lomo'Instant Wide sells for Rs 12820 with a 20-sheet pack of film available from about Rs 1095.

Prynt Pocket 
This isn't a camera but a portable photo printer to hook up to an iPhone. This accessory can print any photo, anywhere, anytime, directly from an Apple smartphone via the Lightning connector. A model for Android smartphones is expected soon. The Prynt Pocket is available for preorder priced Rs 9664. A 40-sheet pack of printer paper costs Rs 1288.
