Your Hasselblad V Camera Can Shoot Fujifilm Instax Square With This Back

The Hasselblad Square Instant Film Back is fully analog and could surely be fun!

Hot on the heels of the Rezivot Instant Film Back Kickstarter is this brand new one: it’s called the Hasselblad Square Instant Film Back. It does pretty much exactly what it says it does.
