Chinese camera startup Nons has come out with its second camera. The Nons SL660 is an interchangeable lens SLR with a Canon EF mount, and uses the widely available Fujifilm Instax Square Film. 

Thanks to 147 backers on Kickstarter its predecessor, the Instax Mini-based Nons SL42, was made possible. Building on its success, the new SL660 will cost $599 (approximately £537 / AU$953) and uses the larger Square film format. Optics inside the camera enable any full-frame EF lens attached to be enlarged to medium format, so that its imaging circle fills the entire film area.
