Polaroid SX-70, open, left side

This is the ground-breaking Polaroid SX-70 Alpha 1. The SX-70 was the first integral print camera model from the Polaroid Corporation, featuring technology that allowed image development that progressed totally on its own, with no user input - the "peel-apart" process was no longer necessary when using this camera. Even more impressive, Polaroid managed to accomplish this with a revolutionary design: the SX-70 was a SLR (single-lens reflex) configuration that was actually capable of folding down to a thin package for transport and storage. The original SX-70 went through several upgrades, eventually leading to this model.
