Behind the Polaroid SX‑70
Picture this: at the Polaroid company meeting in 1972, founder Edwin Land stepped onto the stage, pulled a camera out of his jacket pocket, and took five instant photos in just ten seconds. That camera was the Polaroid SX-70, and it was the camera that made truly instant photography possible for the first time ever.

A Living Legend
This is a fully refurbished vintage Polaroid camera. Each day we save original Polaroid cameras from decades past and lovingly restore them to give them a new life.
Single lens reflex (SLR)
The world’s first instant single lens reflex camera. A mirror bounces what the camera lens sees into your eyepiece, so you can compose your photograph more accurately.
Sonar Autofocus + manual focus
This gold ring pushes out high frequency sound waves, much like a bat, to work out far away your subject is. It then adjusts the focus. In other words: less guesswork, sharper photographs. This edition also comes with manual focus for full creative control.
Each piece of glass, metal, and leather collapses into a self-contained case for compact carrying.
Enjoy your SX-70 indoors and at night with this MiNT SX-70 Flashbar to give you extra light when you need it.
You're ready to shoot with three packs of Polaroid SX-70 film.
