The Camera Bag: Pristine white leather Polaroid SX-70 on sale again

That video history of Polaroid we posted yesterday made us nostalgic for the heyday of instant cameras, which is probably why our heart jumped when we saw this: a classic Polaroid SX-70 Land Camera on sale again.


This original, fold-up SX-70 has been refurbished and reskinned with white leather and it looks gorgeous. You can buy it from the Aperture Photographic & Variety Store here for $249.99.

And yes, we know what you're thinking: Polaroid's no longer making the film for this classic instant camera but you can use PX70 or PX100 film from the Impossible Project instead.

(Or, of course, you could use old Polaroid SX70 film if you have any of that lying around.)
