The SX70 came out in 1972. That’s 47 years ago.
Last month, I found a mint SX70. The leather on it had one mark but was otherwise pristine. The camera came with its original manuals. It even had the dark slide from a pack of film from back then. It also had a pack of film with four unused shots. I had to try.
Polaroid chemicals have trouble lasting 10 years in integral films. So I didn’t expect anything. Still, I moved the film to a recent cartridge with a working battery. I took the camera outside, not expecting to get anything. And sure enough, I didn’t get anything. Oh well. It was fun anyway. Seems like a good way to end Polaroid Week (even if it’s officially already over since it’s after midnight here). Fin. #polaroidweek #polaroidweek2019 #roidweek #roidweek2019
