Polaroid SX70 Model 2

Polaroid 600 film

no filter


After much research, and struggling trying to fix my seemingly broken model 2, I got it working! I bought the thing for 14 bucks with the hope that I could have two sx70's going at a time, one with a filter and one without. I could use the one without a filter to take advantage of low light situations. I took the bottom leather off and got to the battery connections, which seemed to be the problem. After over-volting the connections with a 9V battery (a regular Polaroid pack is about 6v) it just started whirring and working. Absolute aces.
