Classic 1970s Polaroid SX-70 instant camera returns

Pol1

Not just an old camera, this classic Polaroid SX-70 has been 'lovingly restored' for the modern market, sold in some equally stylish new packaging.


The camera is arguably the most stylish of all the Polaroids, dating back to the 1970s, but looking even earlier. It was also first SLR to feature a folding body and stll has film available to use in it – the Impossible Project make PX-100 film for it, but it doesn't come cheap. Easy enough to find though, especially online.

You can still find them on eBay occasionally, but they're unlikely to reach you in the same state as these reissues. They'll not have the same packaging either – the flat-folding leather and chrome snapper is sold in a newly-designed Kate Bingman Burt box.

Now the bad news, the first has sold out. But on the plus side, more are arriving in October. All that renovation work doesn't come cheap though, with the Polaroid SX-70 selling for $350 online. Film extra, of course.
