This Polaroid was the first instant SLR camera. It was a high end, expensive camera produced between 1972 and 1981. It is finished with brushed chrome and genuine leather. This was inherited from my grandfather.

    These were my favourites and for several years used them almost exclusively to photograph my antiques, esp. at the antique shows I attended. I had put an ad in the paper at the time for SX70 Cameras and bought around 15 of them, I also bought more at the value village as in around 1990 they were usually selling for 1 dollar to 10 dollars. There were a number of flashes for the camera I bought also. My absolute favourite was the black model with a special auto focus that made the SX even better. I had so many at the time I sold several of them for good money. I also used it for hundreds of photos of antiques.
