This is a highly collectible and usable vintage instant film camera. This is the first ever Polaroid Camera.
He SX-70 Land Camera, so named for its creator, Edwin Land. It was a cultural phenomenon in the early 1970s. It was a game changer. The iPhone of its day. It has been proudly featured in many movies and TV shows.Polaroids flagship model for many years. The camera features a manually focusable glass lens for the sharpest possible photos. The camera produces photographs in the iconic Polaroid format so many of us are familiar with. You will be able to shoot vintage style pictures and watch the image slowly develop into the classic square format with the white border.
The camera shoots both original Polaroid SX-70 series instant film and newly produced SX-70 series film from Polaroid Originals. Compatible BRAND NEW integrated instant film is being produced by Polaroid Originals in one of Polaroid's original factories in The Netherlands. PLEASE NOTE this camera does NOT feature a built-in flash.A flash is an absolute necessity when taking indoor photos with this camera and film format. Without a flash, indoor photos will come out very dark and/or blurry. SX-70 film needs a large amount of light.

WHAT IS INCLUDED: - Polaroid SX-70 Land Camera - Original Leather case. FOR BEST RESULTS: Please follow all guidelines provided by Polaroid Originals in each pack of film for your best possible results.Based on my own personal experience, the following tips are key: 1. Keep film refrigerated when not in use. This will aid in the films preservation. Allow refrigerated film to reach room temperature for one hour prior to use. Ensure that the camera's exposure dial (next to the lens) is set to 1/3 into the black area of the dial. Keep the film warm during shooting and developing. Cool environments will inhibit proper development. Shoot the film in plenty of light. Use the flash in darker situations or when indoors. Keep your photo shielded from light during the first few minutes of development. Your photo should be fully developed in about 15 minutes. There is a learning curve associated with Polaroid instant film photography. Unlike the consistency provided by digital photography, results can vary greatly based on a number of factors. Digital photography will always produce clearer, more predictable results, but it's nowhere near as fun. Every picture you take will be a true one of a kind!
