All parts on this camera, with the exception of the faceplate and its components, are entirely NOS unused Polaroid parts. Even the protective cellophane was still intact on the viewing mirror! The shutter and sonar assembly are flawless and work perfectly. Visibility through the viewfinder is crystal clear and exposure is 100% to spec. This camera starts at "zero" miles on the odometer...Although it's not a car. This camera has also been electronically modified to natively use readily available 600ASA film which allows for the functionality of an SLR680 without the added weight and bulkiness of a sonar/flash unit. The use of a more light sensitive film is advantageous for image stability in low natural lighting and the modification allows for faster shutter speeds in brightly lit outdoor shots. Sample photos shown were taken with this camera in both flash and ambient lighting. The 2nd Shot Limited Edition Gold SX70 Sonar OneStep Features. 4-element 116mm f/8 glass lens. Minimum focal length of 10.4 inches. Aperture range from f/8- f/90. Shutter speeds from 1/180th to 5+ seconds. Switch between manual and autofocus.

Lugs for a neck strap. Includes rosewood finish gift box and user manual. Please note that the faceplate (area around the shutter button, lens, and ND filter) is a custom reproduction part that has been vacuum metalized to match the NOS gold plated camera body parts.Due to the nature of the vacuum metalization process and limitations when matching colors between materials, there is a slight color variation between the faceplate and the plating on the original NOS body parts. Any sharp objects or use of adhesives, including tape, can damage the metalized surface.
