Instant camera maker NONS has teased an imminent Kickstarter campaign for their latest camera, the SL660.

The new camera will be launched on Wednesday (16 February), according to a post on the NONS website.

The SL660 is an Instax Square-format camera which can mount Canon EF, M42, Nikon F, Pentax PK and Contax/Yashica CY mount, according to a short post on the Nons website.

The post says the camera will retail for $445 (£330).

The announcement follows a few teaser images released showing the camera, which follows the earlier SL42 M42-mount Instax mini cameras.

Though NONS has only shown a few partial images of the camera, Canny Cameras’ Alan Duncan has highlighted a number of new features on the new camera, including the shutter button on the front of the camera and a wooden grip. The camera also appears to have an optical extender and a motorised ejection system for the finished frame of film.

The camera’s name harks back to Polaroid’s own 660 camera. The black-coloured camera has a front plate of aluminium to make it more robust and a fastest shutter speed of 1/250, Canny Cameras notes in a detailed write-up of the camera’s specs.

NONS raised more than HK$250,000 (£25,000) when it launched the SL42 camera in February 2021. It was the most recent camera to use the M42 lens mount, after Cosina’s Voigtlander Bessaflex TM, which was released in 2003.
