While this camera does not give you full manual control, it still leaves plenty of room for creativity, with its shooting modes and the ability to take double exposures (i.e. expose the same sheet of film twice or more to blend the images). The bulb mode is great for long exposures and night photog...
The Instant Wide is big and boxy (7.32" x 9.76" x 4.57"). If you plan to take it with you on a trip, you will need to reserve some space. The main reason for this is the fact that it uses wide film and AA batteries.
It offers 3 shooting modes – an auto mode (landscape and macro focusing modes), dedicated selfie mode and a hi-key mode for extreme brightness. These 3 modes offer everything a beginner might need. The focus modes can be changed to landscape, normal or macro modes with just the touch of a button.
This camera's design is based on the classic Polaroid SX-70, with a metal and leather body construction. Mint has redesigned the motherboard of the SX-70 and replaced the outdated electronic eye of the camera with a modern one, capable of measuring the available light to adjust settings as need...
Since the SLR670 bases its design on refurbished SX-70s, it doesn’t come cheap. But what you're paying, you get a very unique retro-looking camera with modern electronics and outstanding customer service.
This camera's automatic mode can struggle when dealing with contrasty outdoor scenes, such as dark buildings against bright skies. For what it's worth, you can correct the exposure manually to choose between capturing either the darker or the brighter areas of the scene.
While auto mode will be enough most of the time, Leica has equipped this camera with a wide range of additional modes to choose from. It includes a selfie mode, macro mode, a double exposure mode and a bulb mode.
Leica offers its own film for this camera, which is really expensive, costing around $2.5 per color shot or $1.5 for a black and white one. Luckily, the camera also supports the Instax Mini film, which is around three times cheaper.
This camera does a decent job of taking good quality photos without any additional tweaking. It generally does pretty well at setting the exposure needed, resulting in accurately exposed pictures. The flash will fire automatically in dim conditions, even if it is not turned on.
