The SX-70 is a folding single lens reflex Land Camera first produced by the Polaroid Corporation in 1972. It was the first instant SLR in history, and the first camera to use Polaroid’s new integral print film, which developed automatically without the need for intervention from the photographer. This was revolutionary at the time, and a precursor to today’s 600 and Spectra films.



Though Polaroid had considered a Henry Dreyfus designed SLR for its Colorpack film, the SX-70 was the first instant SLR and the first camera to use Polaroid’s new SX-70 integral print film, which developed automatically in broad daylight without the need for intervention from the photographer. The SX-70 was also notable for its elegant folding design, which allowed the camera to be compact enough to fit a man’s suit-jacket pocket when collapsed. The SX-70 included many sophisticated design elements. A collapsible SLR required a complex light path for the viewfinder, with three mirrors of unusual, aspheric shapes set at odd angles. Many mechanical parts were precision plastic moldings. The body was glass-filled polysulfone, a very rigid plastic which could be plated with genuine copper-nicket-chromium. The film pack contained a flat, 6-colt “PolaPulse” battery to power the camera electronics, drive motor and flash. The original flash system, a disposable “Flash Bar” of 10 bulbs from General Electric, used logic circuits to detect and fire the next unused flash.

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。

The original SX-70 was a high-end consumer market camera, with a folding body finished in brushed chrome and genuine leather panels. It could utilize a whole array of accessories, such as a close-up lens (1:1 @ 5 inches), electrical remote shutter release, tripod mount and an Ever-Ready carrying case that hung from the neck and unfolded in concert with the camera. The SX-70 has a folding body design, a 4-element 116mm f/8 glass lens, and an automatic exposure system. The camera allows manual focus as close as 10.4 inches (26.4cm), and has a shutter speed range from 1/175s to more than 10 seconds.
