Review – Polaroid SX-70 Original SLR Camera

Main

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.

CYANOGRAPH SX-70 Film Review

Cyanograph Film ReviewA few weeks ago I posted that The Impossible Project came out with some experimental film called Cyanograph. It was a monochromatic all blue film and was made for use with SX-70 model cameras. It was relatively cheaper then their normally priced film so I managed to buy a few packs of it.

Below are some of the results of the film using several different cameras, though I believe the best came from a folding SX-70 SLR.  The first few are from non-folding box SX-70 cameras and were mostly taken outside in sunlight.
