Challenge One: “Action Shots”

When you are in the thick of the action there is no better companion than an instant camera. But how did these Chekis do when they were challenged to get the best action shots?
The Cheki 55’s consecutive shooting function was the clear winner here as it allows you to get 2 sequential shots, one after the other.

Challenge Two: “Elvis Lives! Proof Shoots”

Chekis are perfect for documenting crazy things you have seen and done. So this challenge is a simple evidence gathering exercise. We told our Cheki teams to go out and bring back proof of something unbelievable.
*It’s a tie – both Cheki’s have proved the King is alive!

Challenge Three: “The Self-Portrait Squeeze”

Find me someone who doesn’t like to take a self-portraits and I’ll show you a big, furry fibber! Now that we’ve got that straight, the best thing is when you can get all your friends in on the shot too. We challenged our teams to see how many people they could fit perfectly in the frame, as well as themselves…
*The Cheki Mini 25 did very well in this challenge due to its unique self-shoot mirror.

Challenge Four: “Look,..no hands”

We challenged our Cheki teams to a race. Who could move the camera 100m without using their hands.
*Although the chest-pass tactic was a stroke of genius for team Cheki 25, pocket-sized Cheki 55 was able to fit snugly in to the pocket!
