Typically, analog instant cameras will print photos immediately after taking a shot, but this Polaroid has a 3.5” touchscreen on the back for image preview, making it easy to take well-composed shots. Even if there isn't any film loaded into the camera, you can still use the camera and save the shots into a memory card. See More
This camera can be used to print your smartphone's photos. Just download the Polaroid app and pair the camera with the phone using Bluetooth. The app can also be used to add effects or edit pictures before sending them out to be printed with the camera. See More
Unlike classic instant cameras, the Snap Touch has picture editing features. You can apply filters, change the color temperatures or add borders to the photo before you print them out. These can be used as an overlay before taking the picture, or add them in after the picture has been taken. See More
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 Mint has redesigned the motherboard of the SX-70 and replaced the outdated electronic eye of the camera with a modern one, capable of measuring the available light to adjust settings as needed.

The SLR670 uses the SX70 film, which has a square image format of 3.1” x 3.1" on a 3.5” x 4.2" card. Mass production of this film has been discontinued and, as of Spring 2017, it is only offered by one small company (Impossible Project ) which has increased the price dramatically. Eight shots with this film cost $23, or nearly $3 per shot. See More
Since the SLR670 uses basically the same classic Polaroid camera body, there is a wide choice of photo-related accessories like flashes and lens attachments. Though most of these are now pre-owned, there’s still plenty that can be found in good condition, for good prices. See More
Mint had integrated a new electronic component called “Time Machine” into this camera. It enables advanced shutter speed control. When not in use, it can be disconnected from the camera, putting it in auto shooting mode, leaving only the focus and exposure compensation options available. See More
Besides the manual mode, there are 3 others: auto, bulb (for long exposures - great for dark environments and night photography) and T mode (for extra-long exposures - pressing the shutter button once opens it and it only closes when the button is pressed again). See More
The OneStep 2 can use Polaroid Original's Color 600 film (that comes with a battery in the film pack) or i-Type film (without battery, cheaper). The reason why this camera can use the i-Type film is because it has a built-in rechargeable (via USB) battery, avoiding the need for one in the film pack. This means you can save some money by using the cheaper film. See More
The appearance of the camera is neither conventional nor compact, but it serves a purpose. The pyramid-like camera has a ring flash around its lens which produces a more pleasing lighting for portrait shots. The LEDs in the ring are also the only way for the camera to indicate its status (through a sequence of lights), since there is no LCD display. See More
One of the camera's most interesting features is the app that connects your smartphone to the camera, allowing you to take full manual control of the camera's parameters. You can also use the app to trigger the camera remotely, set a timer or set up a noise trigger to release the shutter. See More
