Oh the SX-70 OneStep Polaroid. The one with the rainbow strip down the front to be more specific. It’s iconic and if you are from the younger generation it might seem familiar because the Instagram main icon has taken some inspiration from it. This is the first of the box non-folding SX-70 cameras that were made as a cheaper alternative to the folding SX-70’s. The camera was first manufactured in 1977 and had many iterations until the mid eighties.
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.
I thought that this year I should put together a small collection of gifts that an analog photographer may want. They range from all sorts of the analog spectra from bags and albums all the way to film. I know I would love to find these under the tree.
