Everyone is releasing retro tinged cameras these days. Fuji, Leica, those other guys. Everyone! And while they're all pretty great, they're not as chunky / prone to random photo goodness as the originals. That's where MINT come in. A small Hong Kong based company, they take classic cameras and restore them to box-fresh condition. Their latest endeavour is a limited run of Polaroid SX-70s.

An industry legend, the SX-70 was first released in 1972. It was the first folding SLR and the first camera to take integral instant film. Also it looked money (and cost a fortune). 40 years later it still looks money – but it's available for a much more reasonable price. Photojojo are selling the refurbished models online for $350.

Not only is that less than a new camera, it instantly transforms you into 'camera guy' (or girl). So while everyone else at the party / show / art launch is running around trying to outdo each other with camera lenses and flashes, you can wonder around with smug authenticity. You can also show off your handy work in seconds. The camera is fully compatible with both Polaroid instant film and the newer Impossible Project stuff. Eight exposures will cost you approximately $22.
