Compliments to Mint and their customer service.
I bought a SLR670-S two years ago from MiNT website. I'm totally obsessed with instant photography and that's why I am a huge fan of MiNT!
MiNT physical store is one of the must-visit places in Hong Kong. No doubt this is a unique and extraordinary place to go if you are a big fan of Polaroid cameras.
I am pleasure to meet their friendly and passionate staff. You can see they love these cameras as much as we do.
The only thing is the store is not easy to find especially for a non-local like me.
If you want to visit them, make sure you call them for more instructions or stick with Google map.
See you soon, MiNT!
I got the camera 2 days later (I have chosen the fast shipping though). The camera is working great, thank you MINT.
I own the 1st generation TL70, and I can tell you that this camera is beautifully designed and made! However, there were some kinks with the camera. I had the problem with the flash sync and everything came out black. I took my camera in the shop to have it repaired. The ground glass was really dark and I had to use the magnifying glass all the time just to focus! However, since I have upgraded to the 2.0 ground glass, I don't need to use that magnifier anymore because the new glass is super bright and clear! Awesome! I would suggest an upgrade of the ground glass, but that's up to you!
What I can sat about the TL70 Lens set is that if you're going to shoot outdoors! You will definitely need this lens set! The reason why, is that it comes with 3 different ND filters to compensate for the bright sun light! As you know? The Fuji instax mini film has the iso at 800 and every pic you take outdoors will be over exposed most of the time including during overcast skies. You can see the over exposed fisheye pic I included. Don't ask me how I took that fisheye pic! Lol.. It's my little secret! Actually not a secret if you have already followed me on instagram! ;) As for the close up lens, that is another awesome lens! You can see the close up of the flower pic! Pretty sharp! What more can I say? Only thing I can say is, MiNT did it again! Awesome!
At the end, I had to take taking my SX-70 to Mint for repair job. If I were to buy the camera from Mint in the first place, I wouldn’t have to pay extra for repair and could have saved more money on films. It is terrific that Mint provides a 1-YEAR-WARRANTY for SX-70s, and a 3-YEAR-WARRANTY for SLR670 cameras! I definitely recommend getting SX-70s from there because it’s worth the price!
Good job Mint!
The emergence of MINT and its skilled technicians has eliminated this expensive and wasteful practice for good. Now I can always count on fast, efficient repair service from expert craftsmen and a friendly staff who will return my cameras in excellent working shape. This is a much more sustainable and environmentally friendly practice that anyone can appreciate. I still buy new cameras occasionally, like the SLR 670 I acquired last year, but it was more for its expanded functionality and aesthetic beauty than as a back-up for ill-functioning old equipment.
Upon receiving the SLR680 back there was problem arisen from the repair, which meant the manual focusing did not work. Mint were very professional and offered to get it looked at right away, so another repair was needed, which was all paid for including postage. No quibbles.
Due to my highly satisfatory experience, I have since recommended a whole load of other people to repair their SX-70's/SLR680's at Mint, because you know these guys love their Polaroid cameras just as much as we do!
