My camera is out of order, what can I do?

If your SX-70 camera is still in the warranty period, we will fix your camera for free. Yes, under any condition. If your warranty has expired, you will be charged a HKD200 checking fee.

What does one-year-warranty include?

It includes all the daily cleaning and repair service without any charge. Warranty is extendable after 1 year.

What is so special about MiNT certified cameras?

In 2009, MiNT hired a team of retired Polaroid technicians to restore broken Polaroid cameras, in order to prevent them from being obsolete. In the meantime, we noticed that many SX-70s appeared to work fine but were actually at the brink of breakdown. Since then, we began restoring and cleaning every camera before placing it into the hands of the new owner. So every camera you find at MiNT has been carefully restored and certified by an expert, guaranteed to work and in good aesthetic condition - and so the name "MiNT". We are enthusiastic about training new technicians. Keep your eyes open!

Who restored the SX-70 cameras for MiNT ?

That's our repair team in our Polaroid SX-70 Repair Center. All of them got over 10 years experience on camera.

How to extend the warranty?

You can simply purchase the MiNT Care Plan (HKD300). Or buy any 3 packs of film and add HKD150 to extend the one-year-warranty.

Beginner's Guide

How to choose the film?

For the SX-70s and box type cameras, they are mostly using the Color 70 and B&W 70 films, they can also use the Color 600 and B&W 600 films by adding the ND filter or MiNT Flash Bar. For 600 type camera, they can use the Color 600 and B&W 600 films, they can also use the Color 70 and B&W 70 by turning the exposure wheel to the white side. Different cameras are using different films. If you get any question, please don't hesitate to contact us.

I already chose the right film. How come my photos still come out blurry and yellow?

In most cases, it is about the lighting. Because SX-70 is a low ISO (only ISO100!) camera, it requires a lot of light to take a good photo. Especially when you are taking photos indoors, Mint Flash Bar 2 can solve the problem. You can find more information about extra ways to use your camera on our blog.

How to store the photos and films?

Please shield your photos once it comes out from your camera. And it is best to let the photos develop in dark or low light environment as well. For B&W pictures, it is highly advisable to shield it from strong sunlight. Store unopened film pack in the fridge. Do not freeze! Before using, allow the film to adjust to room temperature for 1 hour.
