As many consumers had difficulty focusing with their original SX-70s, Polaroid released an autofocus model of their folding SX-70 in 1978. The SX-70 Sonar OneStep utilized a new and very advanced sonar technology. When the shutter button is pressed halfway, a series of ultrasonic chirps is emitted from an electrostatic transducer located under a plate over the lens. These chirps travel to the subject and bounce back to the camera’s receiver, alerting the camera to the subject’s distance, and the lens is turned on a motor to focus accordingly.



The Polaroid SX-70 Sonar OneStep features a 4-element 116mm glass lens, manual or autofocus capabilities, with a minimum focal length of 10.4 inches, electronic shutter, programmed automatic exposure and a socket for flashbars or electronic flashes. Another nice feature is a socket for an electrically-actuated remote shutter release.

SX-70系列是拍立得发展史上最佳的专业单眼相机,在SX-70發明前,宝丽来相机是採用拉紙式的,就是按快門後,拍摄者要自行從相机中拉出宝丽来,然後撕开相底,這才能看到相片,但SX-70卻是一按快門後,相片便会自动「吐出」,而且它可以做到『刮相』等特別效果。」几部電影如〖情書〗以及MTV中再度唤起人們的记忆, 喜欢宝丽来的人,就是喜欢一种对顏色的感觉,以及一按快門,相片便即時显现的独特效果所帶來快感乐趣。
