Polaroid SX-70 :: Sonar :: Black : Clear
► Fully Restored
► One Year Warranty
► Limited Edition Clear Housing
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.
The SX-70 Sonar was introduced in 1978, six years after the release of the SX-70 Original. It's key feature is the circular sonar dish which sits above the lens; this dish produces actual sonar waves which communicate the focal distance to the camera. Decades later, this system remains shockingly fast, accurate, and incredibly fun to use. The sonar auto-focus system can be disabled with the flick of a switch to allow for manual focus. This comes in handy especially when taking pictures through windows (the sonar ping will hit the glass and focus close-up!) or when making close-up portraits.
