MiNT’s InstantKon SF70 Is the Manual Instant Camera We Need

We’re streaming daily on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Pocket Casts, and Spotify!

Instant cameras are always a ton of fun to use. Still, we’ve always wished that more instant cameras on the market offered full manual controls. MiNT believes this is important too. MiNT has been making instant cameras with manual controls for a while now. In fact, we’ve reviewed two of their previous cameras before: the MiNT SLR670-S and the MiNT InstantFlex TL70 2.0. And we loved both of them. Now, MiNT has a new Kickstarter campaign to bring their version of the legendary Polaroid SX-70 to life. MiNT’s version, the InstantKon SF70, is a full manual control instant camera that uses Fujifilm’s Square Instax film. We have to say that it looks fantastic and we’re super excited about it. Head on past the break for all the juicy deets!
