Polaroid Sonar Autofocus SX-70 to 600 Film Conversion with Repair Service

Sale price$ 295
Choose New Leather Color:

The current turnaround time is approximately three weeks from the date of delivery to our location.

Tired of keeping a supply of different film types to use between your 600 and SX-70 cameras? We can service your SX-70 folding camera and convert it to use 600 film.

Whether your camera seems to be acting just a bit “off” or it’s gotten so bad you think a potato would take better photos than your brick of a camera, we are here to help you out. 

Beyond just converting your SX-70 folding camera to shoot 600 film, our services include recalibrating the shutter (which means your camera should shoot true to the lighten/darken dial), cleaning optical components, fresnels, viewing lenses, mirrors, etc. Our team carefully cleans the external components and replaces the leather skins. (They must be removed to access internals.) All cameras are film tested and won't be returned until they are producing excellent exposures. All cameras receive between two and four hours of hands-on time from our team.

All necessary repair work is performed by a trained technician using specially designated tools and equipment. Replacement parts, if used in the course of repair, are fully refurbished and guaranteed. Because of their refurbished nature, previous wear may be present on any replacement components.

Each camera we service comes with a 90-day warranty.

Which models does this service cover?

This repair service covers sonar autofocus SX-70 camera models that do not have a built-in flash. Commonly, the configuration of the sonar models is a chrome body with black leather or a black body with black leather.

In the wrong spot? Please check out our repair + conversion services for non-autofocus models.

Please note that 600 and SX-70 are completely different film speeds. Once you convert your camera to take 600 film, SX-70 film will no longer work in your camera.

Notes on Leathers
While we’d love to save the original leather skins, it just isn’t possible. The fasteners allowing the camera to be taken apart and serviced are located underneath. Since there is no way to peel the skins up without ruining them, they must be replaced with your choice of either black or tan genuine leather skins. They are fresh, new and Italian. *chef's kiss* While black and tan are our standard selections, we have plenty of new fresh skins if you are interested in more pizazz.
