This Spectra First Edition Media Release Gift is the rarest of all Spectra's. These lucky few Photographers and industry writers were given these kits at the unveiling of the Spectra First Edition at the Waldorf Astoria New York 1986.
The Spectra represented a bold new move for Polaroid. The Spectra Film offered a wider integral film image than the SX70 or 600 series. The Spectra family begins with this First Edition Camera and the lineage can be directly traced to the newest iteration, the Z340. The Spectra System family of cameras is a highly evolved and utterly powerful instant camera that features a 125mm f/10 color corrected lens, integrated fill flash, adaptive sonar autofocus and the advance brilliant designed Quintic Shutter assembly.The Spectra series camera ushered forth a new chapter in the long legacy of Polaroid. This legacy is still alive and well within the taut superior designed sublime Z340. This Spectra First Edition Media Release Gift is complete and perfect. The BUD case has an acid etched relief of the Spectra First Edition logo and is absolutely beautiful. This case is a elegant and in excellent, near perfect condition. The hardware is bright chrome and completely perfect. Even the lock assembly has never been set and the guide to setting the lock is still with the original paperwork. All of the pieces of this kit are brand new and never used. The camera is in near perfect condition even though it was on display behind glass for nearly two decades. The Special Effects Filter Kit is complete and perfect.
The Photo File 20 is unopened and in perfect condition. One of the most unusual and exciting parts of this kit is the Polaroid Supercolor VHS tape introducing the Spectra First Edition cameras and its use. This VHS is still unopened and factory sealed.
The original letter from Polaroid introducing the Spectra First Edition is still with this kit. This letter touts the Spectra First Edition as the most advance Integral camera Polaroid had produced to that date. This is a true museum piece and is certain to be the pride of any collection as it has been a source of pride for me. There were very few of these Media Gift kits produced and it is very unlikely that many have survived. You will not find another and especially in this superb, unused mint and complete condition.It is a scientifically proven factoid that photography will help you live longer.
