Mint Camera Instantkon RF70 Overview

A unique blend of control and flexibility, the InstantKon RF70 from MiNT is an INSTAX Wide-format instant film camera featuring a distinct folding design along with both fully manual and automated capabilities. In addition to the vintage-inspired folding design, the RF70 also sports a mechanical rangefinder that enables precise manual focus operation and supports an accurate 0.44x-magnification optical viewfinder for composing shots. In terms of operation, manual shutter speed and aperture control is possible, along with support for multiple exposure and bulb functions for creative results. The integrated 93mm f/5.6 lens features a triplet optical layout, with individual glass elements sporting an aspherical design and a multi-coating for high sharpness, contrast, and color accuracy. Additionally, the camera has a built-in flash, features a 2.5mm port for connecting an optional external strobe, is compatible with threaded cable releases, has a 1/4"-20 tripod mount, and features a settings LCD screen for reviewing exposure settings.

Folding design uses a bellows to maintain a relatively compact form factor when the camera is not in use, but still accommodates the large INSTAX Wide film format.
Mechanical rangefinder design enables precise manual focus control for working with subjects as close as 2.5' away.
Both automatic (aperture priority) and manual exposure control methods are available; manual control makes use of a full range of shutter speeds, from 1 to 1/500 sec, and aperture settings, from f/5.6 to f/22. Also, A+1 and A-1 exposure compensation settings can be used in aperture priority mode.
Bulb setting is available for making long exposures up to 10 minutes long.
Multiple exposure lever enables making an unlimited number of exposures on a single sheet of film.
Built-in pop-up flash can be used for fill flash or to provide additional illumination to the scene for working in low-light conditions, and a 2.5mm port is also available for connecting an optional external strobe.
Integrated rear LCD highlights shooting settings for more intuitive manual exposure control.
Fixed 93mm f/5.6 lens features an all-glass triplet optical design with multi-coated elements to provide high contrast and color saturation. Individual elements also feature an aspherical design for impressive sharpness and low distortion.
Optical viewfinder features a 0.44x magnification and works in conjunction with the rangefinder design to provide an accurate field of view for composing shots.
Threaded shutter release button accepts standard cable releases, and a 1/4"-20 mount is also featured for working atop a tripod or a monopod.
Two AA batteries are used as the power source for the built-in light meter and LCD screen.

Mint Camera Instantkon RF70 Reviews

Reminding me shooting can be fun & not just work

The Mint InstantKon RF70 is an absolute blast to use. I bought it specifically to use at wedding receptions after seeing how much fun my kids FujiFilm Instax was at parties. The added benefit of full manual control makes this a no brainer for anyone that enjoys creating images.

Love It!

I never used an instant film camera before and I have always been digital camera user (SONY and Nikon). No doubt RF70 is the best Polaroid camera I've seen! It's just amazing. The best thing of RF70 is the aperture control, and excellent shallow depth of field. I am very happy and having fun shooting with it.

Lovely camera with aperture control, shutter speed control. This is a birthday gift for my girl friend. We do enjoy this camera. It is a must for travelling. We brought it to our Asian trip last month. With the ND filter set I can use f/5.6 under sunlight with the 800ISO fuji films but still getting a shallow depth of field. How cool is it !!!

Every single sample image I have seen from this camera is blurry. The advantage of this camera over every other one on the market for instax wide is that it doesnt' use blunt zone focus. But EVERY image is blurry on a '$900 camera, apparently from the..lens? What gives?
Asked by: John
The resolution on Fuji instant film isn't nearly as bad as the sample images from this camera. Not even remotely close. We have the original auto-focus glass lens Japanese market Instamatic Fuji from the '90s and its fantastic...but its old and we're looking for a more reliable replacement. This camera looked to be it but every sample image looks worse than the cheapest plastic Fujis.
