Limited to 50-units worldwide and priced at $999 USD, the Polaroid 50th Anniversary Edition Gold SX-70 instant film camera is built using parts from the original. These vintage SX-70 cameras were completely disassembled, cleaned, and then stripped of their chrome plating before a 24K gold layer was added.
All 50-units have been reassembled with fully refurbished internals and finished in new, genuine leather coverings embossed with the anniversary emblem as well as an individual serial number. After being hand calibrated to, they were encased in special 50th Anniversary Edition packaging, which comes complete with a polishing cloth and camera manual. Available now directly from Retrospekt. For something even smaller, you’ll want the Polaroid Go, the world’s smallest analog instant camera.

It was a single-lens reflex (SLR) camera, it automatically ejected photos and it folded down allowing it to fit into the inner pocket of a suit coat — all firsts for instant photography. It was also the first to use integral instant film. Development was completely self-contained within the photo’s white border; the same white border now considered the quintessential icon of instant photography,” said Retrospekt.
