Handling of Instax SQUARE Film and PhotosFor details on the handling of film and photos, see the instructions of FUJIFILM Instax SQUARE instant film.

  1. Keep film a cool place. In particular, do not leave a film in an extremely hot place, such as in a closed motor vehicle, for a long period of time.
  2. Use film as soon as possible after inserting it in the camera.
  3. If the film has been kept in a place where the temperature is extremely low or high, allow it to become accustomed to a normal temperature before taking pictures.
  4. Use film before the film expiration date referenced on the package.
  5. Avoid airport checked luggage inspection and other strong X-ray exposure. The unused film is susceptible to the effect of fogging, etc. We recommend that you carry film onto aircraft in carry-on luggage (check with the relevant airport for more information).
  6. Avoid exposing photos to strong light, and store them in a cool and dry place.
  7. Do not make a hole in film or tear or cut film. Do not use film that is damaged.
  8. Do not cut or disassemble the film for this camera as it contains black caustic alkali paste. Be especially careful not to let infants or pets put the film into their mouths. Also, take care that the paste does not come into contact with skin and clothes.
  9. If you accidentally touch the paste of unused film, immediately wash it off with plenty of water. If the paste comes into contact with the eyes or mouth, wash the area and then seek medical attention. The alkalinity of this film will weaken approximately 10 minutes after the photo is ejected from the camera.
