The test vehicles are clad with plating to hide the actual car beneath. In a way this camera follows this theme.The film test engineer could carry this camera in public and shoot without anybody knowing exactly what the camera was. This camera was made for a specific engineer and signed out to that individual who was responsible for maintaining the trade secrets. This Polaroid Pronto Series Factory PreProduction is in good cosmetic and perfect operational condition. This is a piece of American Instant film history and tells a great story. The rarity and the history behind it means this Pronto series camera will only appreciate in value.
A few unique features that identify this particular camera as a Prototype and different than the standard Pronto are... 1 The film door has a totally unique metal plate that identifies this camera as a'Polaroid SX-70 Land Camera'. 2 The film counter roller is black and not white. 3 The paint is blue on the metric scale on the lens and not green. 4 The name is'CAMERA' and not'PRONTO'.
