Classic Polaroid SX-70 available once again

Get an original 1970s Polaroid instant camera for (expensive) photos or just displaying.

It's funny how nostalgia and/or great design can make people empty their wallets. For camera buffs, one such luxury is an original Polaroid SX-70.

Toy camera and lens shop Holga Direct is now selling completely refurbished Polaroid Model One series SX-70 cameras. This particular version was manufactured from 1973 to 1975 and is in complete working condition and backed by a one-year warranty.

The camera is available by itself for $333.99, with two packs of film and an ND lens filter for $409.99, or, for $539.99, you can get the camera, film, filter, a flashbar, and retro case.

The film comes by way of the Impossible Project, which currently stocks five types of film cartridges for the SX-70, all around $24 for eight exposures.

For those curious just about the camera and not about owning one, check out the promo video above. About five minutes in, they explain all that has to happen inside the camera before it spits out a photo.
