Polaroid 600 SLR 680 SE Gold Folding Instant Film Camera

Sale price$ 1,999

This gold-plated Polaroid SLR 680 camera is a unique, custom creation from Retrospekt.

Utilizing original internal components from vintage Polaroid SLR 680 instant film cameras that have been thoroughly cleaned and calibrated; the cosmetic components were completely disassembled, thoroughly cleaned, stripped of their original chrome plating, freshly plated in 24k gold and adorned with new, genuine leather coverings. 

Because these cameras use vintage parts, there will be signs of wear visible beneath the gold plating. Gold plating is considered to be a "living finish" which means it is subject to the effects of weather, moisture, air and natural oils from the skin causing it to change in appearance. Over time, the finish can oxidize and develop a patina. To decrease these effects, take special care in cleaning and handling your camera. Do not use cleaners that are designed for other metals. The best way to polish the camera is to use a soft cloth and no moisture.

Plating specification: MIL-G-45204; 99.7% purity

This is a genuine piece of vintage retro tech - refurbished and restored by Retrospekt.

Its beauty and technical capabilities are ageless, but to ensure it still works like the day it was first made, our team carefully refurbishes every camera by hand from the inside out. Each camera is deconstructed to its base components so its pieces can be checked, cleaned and serviced (or replaced if need be). This also includes a step unique to Retrospekt’s refurbishment process: using proprietary tools to internally recalibrate the shutter to expose true to the light/darken wheel so no compensation is needed in settings with normal lighting. The cameras are then reassembled with fresh, genuine leather covers and film tested to ensure they’re producing excellent exposures for another lifetime of use.
