Vintage Polaroid Spectra System - SX-70


Spectra included a lot of incredible versions in Polaroid's iconic SX-70 format line. This is the Spectra System, a rangefinder with quick pup-up viewfinder focusing and all of the cool Sonar focusing features you'd expect of Polaroid's ground breaking futuristic tech. This camera has a fixed plastic lens, flash slot, rangefinder, light meter, and exposure adjustment knob. No batteries are necessary, as the film packs come with built-in battery packs. 

About the series

At the Polaroid company meeting in 1972, Edwin Land stepped onto the stage, pulled a camera out of his jacket pocket, and took five instant photos in just ten seconds. That camera was the Polaroid SX-70, and it was the camera that made truly instant photography possible for the first time ever.
