Film is Not Dead. In fact, Fujifilm's Instax film was one of last years big winners when it came to film and camera related sales world wide. Gary and his team at MiNT Camera in Hong Kong understand this niche market and have built an entire business around the world of instant photography. Not only does MiNT refurbish and modify vintage Polaroid cameras, they also created a unique hybrid TLR (Twin Lens Reflex) that uses Fujifilm's Instax Mini film called the InstantFlex TL70.
I was in Hong Kong last fall and was able to visit the MiNT team in Causeway Bay and played around with the InstantFlex camera. Recently Jackie reached out and asked if I was interested in testing a production model TL70 Version 2.0, and of course I said yes. Enjoy my unboxing and first impressions with this fun little camera, and look forward to a full review including shooting with it on the streets of Vancouver. Thanks for watching and thank you for your support.
