To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Polaroid SX-70 format, we are releasing a very short run of 50 gold-plated SX-70 instant cameras. Each anniversary camera is built using components from vintage Polaroid SX-70 cameras. The cameras have been completely disassembled, cleaned, stripped of their original chrome plating and plated in 24k gold.

The cameras have been reassembled with the freshly refurbished internals and finished with the application of new, genuine leather coverings embossed with the anniversary emblem and individual unit numbers. After being calibrated to ensure their functionality for another lifetime of use, they are encased in special 50th Anniversary Edition packaging along with a polishing cloth and camera manual.

Because these cameras use genuine, vintage parts that are up to 50 years old, 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
