The SX-70 is a folding single lens reflex Land camera which was produced by the Polaroid Corporation from 1972-1981. Highly sought after by Polaroid enthusiasts, the SX-70 retains a cult following today.
The SX-70 produces instant pictures, processing the images in a few minutes. With an f/8 aperture, this SLR film camera provides bright pictures and allows you to alter the focus manually at 10.4 inches from the subject, clicking beautiful pictures even when standing close to the object. With the shutter speed ranging from 1/175s to more than 10 seconds, this SLR film camera catches the subject in action, eliminating the blur. Pictures from the SX-70 eject automatically and develop quickly without chemical residue and the camera is capable of converting a 1.5x picture to 174mm.
The SX-70 model has been famously used by eminent photographers such as Ansel Adams, Andy Warhol and Helmut Newton!
Takes SX-70 film (not included) – this camera has been tested with a battery cartridge and winds on and fires as it should and focussing works smoothly, however I have not tested it with film, and so though I see no reason for any issues I must list this item as untested with film.
opens and closes smoothly and tightly
optics are clear from fungus
excellent working condition
the leather patches are worn with some cracks but these are endearing, in no way compromise the infrastructure of the camera case itself which remains perfectly intact (please see photos). Patches can be replaced.
Film for this camera is available online from ‘The Impossible Project’.
