Polaroid Sx70 Model 3 Instant camera; the pictures do not do this one justice she is just gorgeous. I do refurbishments/restorations on many Polaroid cameras but mostly sx70’s because they are the most interesting & fun to build. Some people play with model trains, I do this. All of my candidates are first tested for functionality, at which point I determine if the unit will be used for spare parts or repaired/restored. If the unit is solid, it is then stripped and fully cleaned of the 40+ years of gunk that has built up in the cracks & crevices; this is not somebody’s grandfather’s crusty old hand-me-down, but a fully refreshed camera. Upon reassembly, any issues like foggy lenses, cracked body parts, weak drive motors, stiff focusing mechanisms, clouded light sensors etc. Are replaced; I have a vast surplus of spare parts and to be perfectly honest it just makes more sense for me to correct these issues while the camera is already apart. Once it has been reassembled, it is verified to be fully operational in all aspects, smoothly folding closed/opening, focusing, and especially film ejection, which is tested at least a dozen times with blank frames to ensure consistency. Once the camera has made it this far, I pop in a cartridge with a couple live shots of film left in it, and snap a few shots to verify proper exposure and to check for any light leaks. I do this mostly as a hobby and probably would keep them all if the wife would let me I try to do unique-style builds; this is a totally blacked-out theme that I’ve been wanting to try for a while. The price does not reflect the amount of care & attention to detail that goes into each build; from it’s fresh vintage appearance to the smell of the soft new leather as you bring the camera to your face, this is a camera you’ll be proud to display, use, or both.
