We have talked about the Polaroid SX-70 on the blog before. It is one of our favorite cameras for shooting instant film and we know many of you out there feel the same way.
Often we get asked, “what camera should i get to shoot Impossible film?” and our answer is the SX-70 most of the time. The camera is small, light weight and easy to use. It came in various models including the Sonar which has autofocus. There are close up filters and flashes available for it. And in our opinion, it is one of the best looking cameras ever made.
Recently, Matt Day, friend of the blog and host of The Film Show on YouTube, did a video review of the original SX-70. He goes over it’s features and function and talks a little about the film currently available for it. If you, like many, have ever wondered what camera is a great way to get into instant film, hopefully this video will help.

Although you can still find expired Polaroid film floating around Ebay, it is often a gamble when buying these films. We suggest using fresh film from the Impossible Project. You can find all the current films available for the SX-70 by clicking here.
