The best digital camera lets you capture highly-detailed photos for printing and sharing on social media. Instant cameras are throwback tech that we absolutely love. The Polaroid Mint Camera & Printer has been one of our favorite instant camera models since its arrival. Getting one of the Polaroid Mint camera cases will help to protect your investment and shield your Polaroid Mint against accidental bumps and drops. If you're in the market for a new travel case, take a look at a few that made the top of our favorites list this year.
Fits like a glove
One-size-fits-all camera cases work, but they sometimes leave a little too much extra room for your Mint to bump around. The official Polaroid Eva is one of the absolute best Polaroid Mint camera cases. It's designed only for the Mint, so it fits like a glove. The interior is padded and lined with felt, giving your Mint a cushy bed of protection against drops and bumps. There's a small storage pocket inside for Zink paper, memory cards, and lens wipes. The rigid exterior holds its shape and is durable enough to last through any adventure. The Polaroid Eva comes in seven colors, so you can mix and match with your camera color or mood.
Extra protection against drops
Things bump around when you travel, and that's not good for your pricey tech tools. Cameras are especially susceptible to lens damage. The Canboc Shockproof Case fits numerous Polaroid cameras, including the Polaroid Mint Camera & Printer. The exterior is a semi-hard EVA that's also water-resistant. The inside has a shockproof padded lining that keeps your Mint from suffering damage from the drops and bumps of everyday life. The small inside pocket is just big enough for storing extra memory cards. The Canboc comes with a short detachable wrist lanyard for more comfortable transport, too. If you trek long distances and need a bag that encases your Mint in a shockproof vault, this is the one for you.
Room for a few extras
I'm a one-bag kinda gal. I pack minimally and put as much in one bag as possible. If that resonates with you, look to this camera bag from AmazonBasics. This canvas over-the-shoulder bag has enough space inside to house to your Polaroid Mint, numerous memory cards, charging cables, your phone, a passport, and small electronics. The interior is generously padded and features an adjustable divider to keep cords away from your camera's delicate lens. The shoulder strap is long and adjustable. It can also be removed and carried about with a top-sided handle. If you pack lots of gear when you go out to shoot or need one bag for vacation, this model is perfect.
Make a statement
There's no getting around the fact that most camera cases lack style. That's not the case with Fintie. This custom-designed case fits several Polaroid cameras, including the Mint. The shell is hard EVA, and it keeps your camera from being damaged. An inner mesh pocket is big enough for cables and small essentials. You'll also get a portable strap that makes it easy to secure this case to your backpack or use it as a handhold. Even better, the Fintie case is available in nine fun patterns for those who want to make a statement with their gear.
Disguise it in a satchel
Journeying abroad or in your home country comes with risks, including those from pickpocketers. You'll keep your camera hidden in this canvas satchel look-a-like from ZLYC. It looks like a small messenger bag, but it's made for safe camera storage. There's space inside for your Mint, small electronics, cables, and travel itineraries. The attached strap is long enough to sling over your shoulder. The interior is padded and roomy and gives you easy access to your photography tools. The ZLYC bag will help you blend in as a traveler and make you look less like a tourist.
The Polaroid Mint Camera & Printer is one of the best instant cameras around. We love its picture modes, stealthy 16-megapixel sensor, and its ability to print high-quality photos on the spot. We're big fans of cases that cradle your tech, and that's one of the many reasons we think Polaroid's official Eva Travel Case (opens in new tab) is the best Polaroid Mint camera case for your money. The Mint fits perfectly inside the Eva, plus you'll get a wrist lanyard and storage pocket. For globetrotters or those shooting film close to home, the Polaroid Eva offers a level of protection you can trust.
If you prefer a bag with a little extra room for accessories, I recommend the canvas Camera Case from AmazonBasics (opens in new tab). It's built tough enough for long-distance travel and has lots of space for cables, memory cards, other electronics, and anything else you need to take with you.
If you'd prefer to blend in with the crowd and not look like a tourist, I'd go with the multi-pocket satchel from ZLYC (opens in new tab). The canvas exterior is water-resistant, the inside spaces provide cushioned chambers for your gear, and it looks more like a messenger bag than a camera case.
