The last store in my neighborhood that sold film cameras and processed film closed. As I attended the retirement party of the stores owner, there was an auction for some of the vintage cameras in his collection. After a few cocktails I purchased a Polaroid SX-70 with sonar auto-focus. The day after I realized what I had done, I ordered two packs of film: one B&W and one color. This week I took my “new” camera to a friends house and shot a pack of B&W.
I have two Polaroid 600’s. There is no comparison with regard to the quality of the pictures between the 600’s and and the SX-70. The 70’s pictures are so much clearer and process significantly faster then its counterpart. Of course I am using Impossible film in both the 600 and the SX 70. I can wait to put a few more packs through this camera.
