Being able to manually meter for everything was just a game-changer.
So far though this thing has been great, super accurate in terms of you know taking my meter reading and then setting it appropriately on the camera. Even the auto feature as well just setting it on the auto 600 if I have 600-speed film in here it handles that great as well. l definitely going to continue to keep shooting with this camera.
You see SLR everyday, but TLR have its historical significance and the fact that MINT CAMERA has produced a new entry in the history books, engineered for the newer format of instax film is pretty remarkable.
The Hong Kong-based company MiNT has now set itself the task of making the Polaroid SX-70 available to a wider public again. Besides the production of own cameras like the InstantFlex TL70, MiNT has specialized in the restoration of original Polaroid models like the SX-70. It is true that such models could already be purchased second hand. But such an acquisition was connected with a high risk, as the classic models had to fight with all kinds of signs of age.
But in most cases with instant film, you have very little control over the settings. Professional or enthusiasts who want manual control have always been disappointed with the lack of options when it comes to having control over shutter speed, aperture as well as having the ability to dial in the focus. That's where the InstantKon RF70 comes in, it provides these options and it does so in a beautiful way.
MiNT has created a fully manual instant camera — the RF70 — so you can take your instant photography to the next level. Combining modern technology with a timeless design, the classic-looking black collapsible camera allows you to control its shutter speed, aperture, and focus, giving you much more leeway to play around with your available lighting.
I am really impressed by the camera. The build quality is pretty amazing. It is really stable and the images turned out really good. You can do some amazing stuff with the camera like double exposure. I really love it so far.
This is part of where the magic happens, this little box of tricks plugs into the SLR670, where the flash bar would normally go. This then allows you to control the shutter speeds of the camera, select bulb mode, T mode and auto mode for 600 and SX-70 films.
I think that MiNT has done a great job certainly with the TL70 2.0 version. This is a lovely camera. One of my favourite parts of this camera is the ability to press the shutter button, take a photo, walk away and press the button on the side to eject the Instax mini.
