4-element glass lens, 116 mm, f/8. 10.4-inch (26 cm) minimum focusing distance.Lighten / darken control setting possibility. The SX-70 is a folding Land Camera produced between 1972 and 1977. It was the first instant SLR in history, and the first camera to use Polaroid's new integral print film, which developed automatically without the need for intervention from the photographer. This was revolutionary at the time, and a predecessor to the later 600 and Spectra films. This model also features an electronically controlled'flash-bar' socket across the top of the camera, for insertion of a 10-times use flashbulb unit. Polaroid - as well as other companies - made external flash units that plugged into this socket. The camera comes complete with Original Polystyrene inner packaging, 2 Flash Bars (20 flashes) original picture taken with camera on 21/3/2021 and a photocopy of the original instructions. Overall in very good condition considering its 46 years of age. Cracking to the leather, but does give a nice patina. Tested with Fresh new film, takes SX70 film available from Polaroid and Amazon. Motor and shutter appear to work as it should and is nice and smooth in operation. The bellows are in good condition. Has been unused in my collection for a while, film is readily available from Polaroid or Amazon.
This was a revolutionary product that changed photography for years and is still a round today. Hoping someone will appreciate this as much as I have. I have been as honest as possible, many thanks for looking.This is reliant on the photographer and film loaded. These cameras need to be mastered over time.
