Vintage Refurbished [ℹ]
Polaroid SX-70 Alpha Black Folding Instant Film Camera
With a prestigious moniker such as Alpha, these cameras have a few tiny upgrades from the original models that can make a world of difference in shooting. These differences include tripod mounting capabilities and lugs on the back to attach a camera strap. The interior mechanism is slightly different than the original models, but not a way that is perceptible to the user. The manual focusing system and exposure adjustment options give it a perfect blend of form and precision still sought by photographers today.
