Rebuild Model 1 SX70 with split circle focus. 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 Originals 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 Originals 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, 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.
