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.
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.
MiNT Flash Bar is definitely interesting device and I do recommend it. There's two settings in the back, the flash has a what they call a neutral density compensation mode so it allows you to shoot with 600 films!
Inspired by the SX-70, Gary and his team of 100 spent two and a half years developing the world’s first twin lens instant film camera InstantFlex, TL70. After uncountable attempts and mistakes to turn ideas into a tangible product, the InstantFlex TL70 launched in March 2015.
