Review: Mint Camera InstantFlex TL70 2.0
The Mint Camera InstantFlex TL70 2.0 camera’s biggest upgrade is its brighter viewfinder over the predecessor. This is a proper TLR (Twin Lens Reflex) camera with aperture priority control, exposure compensation, manual focusing, a flash, accessories, and an overall solid build quality. Most importantly for many of us, there are glass elements in the lens. Considering that Instax Mini basically covers a 645 area, this is important.
This can be a tough camera for many of us to learn; but at the same time you’re bound to have fun doing it.
Pros and Cons
- High build quality
- Bright viewfinder
- Fairly intuitive controls
- Aperture control with Aperture priority metering accordingly
- Fun to tote around
- A true conversation starter in a world where everyone has a camera
- Metering can be a bit wonky to work with
- Magnifier could be easier to work with.
The Mint Camera InstantFlex TL70 2.0 was used with Fujifilm Instax Mini film, the Mint Camera ND filters, the lens hood, and the Jolie Laide Traveller Camera Strap.

Product information MiNT InstantFlex TL70 instant camera 2.0
MiNT InstantFlex TL70 is the world’s first twin-lens instant camera.
To extend the legend of Polaroid, MiNT recruited the top designers and engineers around the world, just like they did in their glory days. With 5 years of experience in antique cameras and a couple of engineering geniuses, a new timeless camera is invented. We are proud to introduce to you TL70.
A well-designed camera aims to bring out the best photography in you. But it can also make you fall in love with the entire shooting experience. MiNT TL70 is pretty much that kind of camera.
The viewfinder uses a bright anti-glare coated glass pane that yields a cinematic view of the world.
With InstantFlex TL70, MiNT eschewed the conventional standards of instant cameras, and imagined the benefits of adapting traditional camera design to an instant camera.
MiNT TL70 comes with a built-in light meter, just like the legendary Polaroid SX-70.
It is equipped with an A/B mode, focusing wheel, EV switch and eject button.
All of them built right into the camera, nothing is sticking out of the flat body.
The cinematic viewfinder provides an incredible user experience and you will feel like being at the movies.
The viewfinder has two built-in LED light indicators, green indicates ‘ready to shoot’, orange indicates too bright or too dark.
5-leaf shutters – It never happen in any instant camera before.
5 aperture settings with f/5.6 largest ever in any instant camera
Most instant cameras only use 1 to 2 lens. But TL70 uses a 3-element lens with antiglare optical coating,
which helps you capture quality images.
Simply open the viewfinder and it turns on; close it and it turns off.
MiNT InstantFlex TL70 wird mit einer weltweit gültigen, zweijährigen Garantie verkauft.

Since the early 2000s we have been selling our own films under the brand name Rollei. The Rollei RPX series, consisting of the RPX 25, RPX 100 and RPX 400, immediately established itself worldwide, and is very popular. As well as 35 mm format and 120 roll film format, since 2014 there have also been Rollei RPX film in 4 x 5″ sheet film format. Since August 2015 the very popular Rollei films Retro 80S, Retro 400S and Rollei Superpan have been available in the usual high quality but with a new packaging design.
As well as film we also sell photography chemicals and photo paper under the Rollei brand. An overview of the manufacturer with more interesting information can be found here, or via our navigation.
