Black SX70 Alpha Special - Rebuild, New Red Coverings, Updated to use 600 Type film cartridges

$385.00

Rebuild Special Black Alpha SX70 that has silver face and viewfinder housing common known as the BC model, split circle focus and new red coverings. Upgraded to shoot the faster 600 type film cartridges. This model includes neck strap connectors and a tripod hole.

The original SX-70 offers a famous package of features:
- You see exactly what your taking a picture of, the view finder looks through the front photo lens
- The manual focus dial will let you photograph items down to a foot out to infinity using a split circle alignment.
- The shutter auto adjusts from 1/175 second to 5+ seconds
- Auto aperture adjusts from f8 to f22.
- Glass lens is 116mm f8, 4 element

The Polaroid film cartridges have a battery built in so there is no worries of leaking batteries or more things to buy.

The normal SX-70 uses the SX70 Style film, it is fine. But, the 600 film is much faster (and currently Polaroid offers a lot of frame choices for the 600 line only). The need to use 600 film is why most people move from a SX-70 to the SLR680. The update only impacts the use of the camera without a flash. Working best in well lit areas, indoors and outdoors. When using a flash with this camera, the disposable flash bar is too bright for the 600 speed film so you should use a Mint Electronic Flash at 1/2 power.

Refunds

Repair/Replace 6 month warranty.
I do not offer a refund on any of the cameras I sell. For the Polaroid cameras, I do offer to repair or replace a camera if it has issues within 6 months from purchase date. While I do a final test after assembling the camera by taking actual print photos, these are vintage cameras so little parts can fail after a short time. When this happens, please contact me so I know about the issue, then ship the camera to me. As long as the camera only shows normal wear, no abuse or changes to the camera from how I shipped it, I will either repair the camera or replace it at no charge to you. I will also pay to ship the camera back to you.
