Normally during the summer I tend to go out to the beach pretty often. If not the beach than at least to a swimming pool or something similar. Moving to California about this time last year I thought that I would still be going to the beach or swimming. WRONG. So the Bay Area of California is actually not generally a warm place. I live in Oakland where it is alot warmer than San Francisco but there aren’t really many beaches to visit. I can go to Ocean Beach in SF, but then I would need a wet suit to get in the water and have a jacket if I just want to walk along the beach. So…. to say the least it has not been living up to my California dreams expectations. I should have known Southern California is where it’s at 🙁 At least for my swimming and sunbathing dreams.
I have had my SX-70 camera for a few years and I really love it. This review is on my own very early version of the original Polaroid SX-70. It is the first single lens reflex or SLR instant camera that was manufactured by Polaroid starting in 1972. Many variations were made and eventually Polaroid produced cheaper non-folding plastic box instant cameras that also used the SX-70 integral film.
