Manufactured from 1976 to 1977 by Polaroid Corporation of Cambridge, Massachusetts. A plastic bodied, non-folding SX-70 camera. Actually, the Pronto was the first non-folding SX-70 model. It has a coated 3-element Polatriplet 116mm f/9.4 plastic lens with a minimum focus down to 3 feet. It has an electronic shutter capable of long exposures and used a flashbar flash (but accessory electronic flashes were also available—see the small plastic ridge on the side of the camera near the top used to clip on the electronic flash). While most Prontos had black plastic bodies, several versions, including “SE” (Special Edition), “BC” (packaged for K-Mart stores) and “Sears Special” (shown here) were produced in different colors.
