Our story

Keep Instant Photography Alive

Photography is an ever changing art form – but despite its ups and downs in the last few decades, instant film photography hasn’t changed much since the release of the SX-70 back in 1972. Our founder felt that there were still more to be done and chose to carry on that legacy. He decided to create his own line of products which would marry modern innovations in technology with the timeless, familiar design of the SX-70 to keep the magic of the Polaroid experience alive.

Instant Inspiration

‘Mint’ – the term collector’s use to describe high quality items in perfect condition – became the standard to which we hold all our products. To make this ideal a reality, we assembled a team of dedicated artisans, designers and engineers. As MiNT, we aim to bring our customers products that Dr. Edwin Land would be proud of!

Our vision

Our vision is to keep instant photography alive as a prominent part of human culture.


When we decided to continue Dr. Land’s legacy, we weren’t content with merely preserving the status quo. Taking the body of the SX-70, we’ve upgraded the internal components with modern electronics in order to expand the capabilities of our instant film cameras:

The SLR670‑S are made for manual adjustment of shutter speed, bringing the best out of photographers of any level. What's more, our flagship camera SLR670‑X allows for shutter speed control as well as external flash sync – guaranteeing as much versatility as the user requires. It comes with 5 year warranty as a promise to our users.



Expanding on the legacy of instant film as Polaroid did before us, we recruited the best designers and engineers. After 5 years of experience with vintage instant film cameras and a couple of genius engineers, a new instant film camera was born – the TL70!

We're excited to introduce our latest addition to the InstantFlex family - TL70 Plus. With its brand new design and advanced features like manual shutter speed, aperture control, improved light meter, and OLED display, the TL70 Plus is the ultimate twin lens instant film camera experience. Whether you're new to instant photography or a seasoned pro, the TL70 Plus is sure to impress.

InstantFlex TL70


Recognizing the demand for a professional-type instant camera, we created the InstantKon RF70 that serious photographers would use, also making sure that it was easy enough for an amateur to handle. The world has been treating instant cameras as toys for the past few decades.

Now, with the growing need for square format, we introduce the SF70 with full manual control over shutter speed, aperture, and focusing. It's the only Instax camera on the market to offer such precise control, and we're confident that the SF70 will continue to make InstantKon the top choice for those who want to capture high-quality instant photos.
