Classic Polaroid Box Camera Cleaned and Tested - Upcycled Red, White and Blue


Ask a question

This camera produces Color or Black-and-White prints depending on the film cartridge installed. This camera includes a unused flash bar (10 flashes).

The Red, White and Blue is a bit of Upcycling I did when I had the camera apart to clean and test.

The Polaroid SX70 (1972) was very popular. The camera had many features which took a lot of technology to make work, which meant the camera was on the expensive side. To have Instant Print Polaroid Photography available to more people, a box camera was introduced in 1977. The design is one of the most recognized cameras.

The round lens box Polaroid is a fun classic camera that doesn't have moving mirrors or automated twisting parts to go bad. On the front of the camera is a adjustment knob to use when the background of your photo area is over bright or dark.

The camera doesn't need focusing or a flash to charge. It focuses best on areas over 4 feet away. Perfect for an outing with friends and family. This camera will accept regular 10 shot flash bars via the slot on the top, which I have tested, works.

The film for the box Polaroid is the same film as the SX70. It does not accept the 600 film as that film is too fast. New film in either Color or Black-and-White prints is available through Impossible Project.

The rubber eye piece is original, but I did replace the neck strap with one off a newer Polaroid for your safety when out taking pictures.

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, 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.
