Photography enthusiasts had better sit up for this one. Polaroid has a range of state-of-the-art modern cameras to its name. But can the new fangled camera overtake the appeal of vintage Polaroids? Photojojo is offering limited edition vintage treats for the camera fan. If retro is to your taste, check out the photography store’s limited edition range of the Polaroid SX-70.
The gorgeous SX-70 is a far cry from the digital wonders of today, and therein lies its appeal. This Polaroid camera from the 1970s has not been on the market since 1977. This makes it a prime catch.
The main appeal of the Polaroid SX-70 is its futuristic design. It may have been around four decades ago, but the design gives it a contemporary edge. It is almost the predecessor of modern mobile phones. It opens out into the camera phone, only to collapse into a sleek rectangular box when its work is done.
Restored to working condition by Hong Kong-based company MINT, each camera is packaged by Kate Bingman Burt. Many people prefer to steer clear of vintage cameras because film might not be easily available. However, that is not the case with the Polaroid SX-70. A firm named Impossible Project develops various kinds of Polaroid film. These are available for sale at the Photojojo store.
So take a trip down memory lane with this instant film camera. The $300 price tag may be an obstacle. But it is a small price to pay when there are only 50 Polaroid Sx-70s on offer.
