Mint Camera TL70 2.0 overview

  • 1Description

Updated with a brighter, clearer viewfinder, along with an enhanced exposure control-set, the InstantFlex TL70 2.0 is the second iteration of the TL70 from MiNT, which pairs the classic form and function of a TLR yet has the unique distinction of using instax mini instant film. Featuring a completely manual set of exposure controls, along with a 61mm f/5.6 triplet lens, this camera affords a broad range of creative control during shooting, including timed shutter speeds from 1 to 1/500 sec, bulb shooting for up to 10 seconds, and a choice of aperture settings from f/5.6 to f/22. A creatively-shaped f/bokeh setting can also be used to produce distinctly-shaped out-of-focus highlights when using selective focus techniques, and manual focus control lets you photograph subjects as close as 1.6' away. The twin lens reflex design avails a waist-level optical viewfinder for composing and focusing, and both a bottom tripod mount and neck strap holders are integrated for additional shooting stability. The viewfinder has been updated for this version 2.0 edition, and now incorporates a Fresnel Super Viewfinder, that is rated to be five times brighter, along with a 32% larger magnifier for more focusing precision. Also unique to TLR designs, an electronic flash is featured above the viewing lens to provide additional illumination to a scene. Pairing the celebrated TLR design with a fun and contemporary film format, the InstantFlex TL70 2.0 is a unique shooting option that allows you to also mix creativity and control.

Version 2.0 features a five-times-brighter Fresnel Super Viewfinder for increased clarity when composing imagery. This finder also incorporates a 32% larger magnifier for more precise, critical focusing control.
Improved shutter and aperture mechanisms lend easier, more intuitive control and reliable exposure results.
Accepts instax mini instant film to produce credit card-sized prints.
Triplet 61mm f/5.6 lens features aspherical elements to reduce spherical aberrations for sharper, clearer imagery and a magnesium fluoride coating has also been applied to reduce flare and ghosting for increased contrast.
Manual focus control is available from 1.6' to infinity.
Manual exposure control is possible, with shutter speed adjustment from 1-1/500 sec, or up to 10 seconds in Bulb mode, and aperture settings are available from f/5.6 to f/22. Additionally, a +/- 1 EV exposure compensation setting can also be used for creatively over- or under-exposing imagery.
A unique non-circular f/bokeh setting is available to produce creatively-shaped out-of-focus highlights.
A built-in ambient light meter is used to ensure consistent and accurate exposure results.
An electronic flash is incorporated into the front of the camera to provide additional illumination when working in difficult lighting conditions.
In addition to resembling a classic TLR, the camera is also finished with an appealing matte black textured housing, brushed chromium metallic frame, and soft leatherette wrap.

    Mint Camera TL70 2.0 reviews

    InstantFlex TL70 2.0 Instant Film Camera is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent customer service, fun camera, good build quality I've been using Rollei for years and I understand Rollei is a large company with years of experience in terms of optics and build quality. Just saw Philip's review down there and I would say although Mint is not as large company as Rollei, but their effort is respectable. Back in August I bought a TL70 2.0 but it was faulty, it wouldn't eject film after some time. Then I contacted Mint and they immediately sent me another camera. Even though the build quality is not as solid like Rollei, I really appreciate their customer service and their effort to send me a replacement and make me feel comfortable. Some companies wouldn't even reply you when you have an issue. Please keep up with the good work Mint. As a great fan of TLR, I'd love to see some new ideas.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this instant film camera I never used an instant film camera before and I have always been digital SLR user. However, I really like the look of the Rolleiflex camera and always wanted one. While I was shopping around for an instant camera, I saw this camera which looks very much like a Rolleiflex so I bought it. I am very happy and having fun shooting with this camera. It is not just point and shoot, you still need to make some adjustment to get what you want, but that is the beauty of photography!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aperture Control on TL70, WOW! No doubt TL70 is the best polaroid camera I've received! I'm glad that I chose this camera. Amazing! Clever design on separating the eject button and the shutter so you can do double exposure easily. You can't even guess where the photo will come out until you see it! I was surprised when I first press the eject button. The best thing for TL70 to me is the aperture control. With the ND filter I can use f/5.6 under sunlight with the ISO800 fuji films but still getting a shallow depth of field. How cool is it !!! Light condition is not a limitation anymore, this is the best thing why I love this camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! Gift. It feels like a real camera. You have to work at getting it right. It has a fair amount of manual controls but it isn't a real Rollie. I'll be in line for the 3.0 with a Rollie focusing knob and shutter speeds, but until then it is the best camera for someone who wants to struggle a little and see magic of things you didn't plan on.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, but not worth for everyone. First of all, I'm always happy to see different camera makers put out new instant cameras that fits Fujifilm's instax film type. This one works with Instax Mini. Pros: Cool design. Solid build. More aperture option. Better framing. (compare to other instax camera's range finder style) Manual focusing. Cons: Big. (almost the size of a 5d3 body) Manual focusing. (mine front focus a bit) Aperture control is hard to dial. No timer. Overall it does the work. Product some better image than the Fujifilm Instax Mini series. Using the f/5.6 aperture with flash off create natural feel compare to Instax Mini 7s or 8's flash out photo. (people in the front all super white and bright, background is pitch black) Metering is okay. None of the instax cameras I use has a great metering in this digital age. Just think more and watch out for how light hits on that little light sensor at the front when shooting in a strong contrast setting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transports you back in time! :-) Wow love this camera so far! I used film twin lens reflex cameras before and this takes me back in time! It's more advanced than the point and shoot instants and you actually have to slow down to use it! I've gotten some good results so far! And if you follow the instructions it's fairly easy to use! Did I say how FUN this camera is!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, if you want to take Instant to a new level. I was in search of an Instax camera as a creative outlet and to put a retro spin on my photography hobby. I'd looked at the popular Fuji Instax line of cameras, and even had a Mini 90's in a cart, ready to purchase... but I kept having one nagging question in the back of my mind that kept me from pulling the trigger. This is pretty automatic, and you're stuck at F/12.7. Is this going to really give me the creative control I'm looking for, or would this be better for parties and grabbing quick-memories? Well, I'm not a teenager. I don't really go to too many parties, and the novelty to my friends of an instant photo is a great for sharing, but it doesn't really fulfill my personal goals. However... F/5.7 for lower light and/or shallow depth of field and Manual Focus, coupled with shooting a kind of camera that I'd never shot before? THAT sounds more like what I was looking for! First up... it's expensive. You could buy a Fuji Mini 90, a Fuji 300 wide, a Fuji SP-1 Instax Printer, AND more than 100 shots of film for less than you can buy this one camera by itself... and it doesn't even include a neck strap. That's straight-up daunting, if I'm being honest. On that fact alone, I couldn't recommend this camera for someone who just wants to shoot the Instax Mini format for fun. It took me a week to really mull that over. Am I glad I made the decision I did? Absolutely. This camera has taught me to slow down, compose, and consider. Each shot matters, so I care and think more on every one. This camera WILL take more skill/time and trial/error to get quick shots in focus than other automatic options. Vignetting occurs at high aperture settings. I'm running out of characters B&H will let me use, so let's wrap up this up with pros/cons: Pros: Manual Focus, f 5.6, glass lenses, fun bonus aperture (mine was a clover!), hidden flash, optional ND filters, close up filters, and lens hood Cons: Manual Focus, expensive, light-meter not very dependable in bright light

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best instant camera available The best thing about this camera is the aperture control and the excellent shallow depth of field. It also has good lens quality that creates nice sharp image. It is easy to use and very easy to get beautiful photos, and it is more portable than I thought.
