Polaroid SX-70 :: Alpha 1


1977, USA

The Polaroid SX-70 was the first instant SLR camera ever made. SX-70s feature a manual focus wheel that ranges from a short focal length of 10.4", for close-up photography, to an "infinity" focal length for landscapes. SX-70s also feature an internal automatic exposure system and a manual exposure compensation wheel.

The SX-70 Alpha 1 was produced with a few features that notably separate it from the SX-70 Original.

  • Built-in strap lugs

  • A tripod socket

  • Matte finish on the metal of the body

600 Modification
This camera modification will allow your SX-70 to shoot Polaroid 600 film.
600ASA film, ie 600 film, is significantly faster which will give you more versatility in allowing you to use your SX-70 in lower-light settings. 

Please note that this modification requires the soldering of a new capacitor to your cameras motherboard and is a permanent modification; your SX-70 camera will only be capable of shooting 600 films after being modified.

Our SX-70s have been completely restored in-house, are fitted with fresh new leather coverings, and come with a comprehensive 1 year mechanical warranty.
