Polaroid SX-70 :: Alpha 1
► Fully Restored
► One Year Warranty
Designed by Edwin Land, the Polaroid SX-70 was the first instant SLR camera ever made and completely revolutionized the photographic landscape. We have been proudly restoring the entire Polaroid SX-70 line of cameras for over a decade now which has become the work for which we're best known. SX-70's remain the pinnacle way to shoot instant film, offering maximum control and unparalleled image sharpness due to their incredibly designed glass lens system.
SX-70 Alpha 1 models were produced with three features that notably separate it from the SX-70 Original:
- Built-in Strap Mounts
- Tripod Socket
- Matte Finished Chrome Body
Our SX-70's have been completely restored in-house, are fitted with fresh new leather coverings, and come with a comprehensive 1-year warranty.

600-Modification ($60): This modification upgrade allows your SX-70 to shoot Polaroid 600 film instead of SX-70 film. There are two reasons why many people enjoy this upgrade: (1) 600 film (600 ISO) is significantly "faster" than SX-70 film (160 ISO) and allows more versatile performance in lower-light settings, (2) 600 film is much easier to find and is carried by most camera shops and department stores while SX-70 film can usually only be sourced from specialty shops. Please note that this modification requires the soldering of a new capacitor to your camera's motherboard and is a permanent modification; your SX-70 camera will only be capable of shooting 600 films after being modified. NOTE: If a 600-modified version of this camera is not currently available and you'd like one, email us! We will be happy to get a build started for you right away.
