Fujifilm Instax Square SQ 1

Often some of us find ourselves in a digital rut and we switch to film to get in pace. Using instant film takes away the need to take rolls to the lab (or your darkroom) to be developed, and provides the same immediate results physically.


Instax is a line of instant camera from Fujifilm that prints photos on the spot. We got an Instax Square SQ 1 for a review and we have spent some time with the Fujifilm Instax Square SQ 1, launched last year in September 2020 at a price of Rs 10,999 in India. The price has been decreased now. The latest price of Instax Square SQ 1 is Rs 9,999. This Instant camera was launched in three vibrant colours including Chalk White, Glacier Blue and Terracotta Orange.

This review features the Terracotta Orange colour model of the Fujifilm Instax Square SQ1.

Sennheiser MKE 400 Mic Review

The Sennheiser MKE 400 is a shotgun microphone designed to attach into the hot shoe mounts of DSLR and mirrorless cameras. This new, 2nd-gen of MKE 400 model looks and sounds like a serious piece of prosumer gear, but more casual video shooters need not look away: the MKE 400 also has a naive side that can incredibly boost the quality of smartphone camera clips as well.


We have been using the Sennheiser MKE 400 for quite a while and this is the new offering from Sennheiser for the in their MKE range and this effectively is the upgraded version of the MKE 200 mic, which we had reviewed earlier. The price of this mic is ?16,900 and it is now almost two times the cost of the MKE 200. While not every aspiring videographer will find it a complete recording solution, the MKE 400 can still be one of the best microphones for amateur video recording. Let’s find how it performed and if you should buy it or no?
