SX70 Model 1 - Rebuild, New Tan Coverings, Updated to use 600 Type film cartridges

Sorry, this item has sold.

Rebuild Model 1 SX70 with split circle focus and new tan coverings. Upgraded to shoot the faster 600 type film cartridges. Please note that this original model did not have a tripod mounting hole and did not have neck strap loops built in. A great camera to toss in a bag or even carry in large jacket pockets.

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.
