Brittany > Polaroid SX - 70 CAMERA

Polaroid SX – 70

The Polaroid SX -70 was introduced in 1972.
It was the first motorized Polaroid camera as well as the first foldable SLR design.
It was also the first camera to use non-peel a part self-contained, self-developing film.



The most revolutionary feature of this camera was that it was a folding SLR.
The Polaroid Corporation discontinued the line of cameras despite them being very popular.
Collectors, Artists and Polaroid photographers still continue to use this camera today.

The SX – 70 has been known as an icon of industrial design (and of photography too).

The film that the SX – 70 had was easily manipulated once developed and artists were able to create surreal images, similar to impressionist art.
