Polaroid OneStep SX-70

At Blurb, we’re not just engineers, art directors, copywriters, developers, and operations managers, we’re also photographers. And naturally, we love our cameras: modern, antique, digital, analog, SLR, DSLR, box, bellows, range finder, and point-and-shoot. In this weekly blog series we’re showing off the cameras we use and talking about why we like them.

Camera: Polaroid OneStep SX-70
Owner: Maggie

This is my Rainbow Polaroid, or technically the Polaroid OneStep SX-70. I got him, and a couple of packs of film, from The Impossible Project. The Impossible Project manufactures instant film for polaroids and in their words “prevents more than 300 million perfectly functioning cameras from becoming obsolete and thus changes the world of photography.” Admittedly, I have not mastered the art of taking photos with this guy. So far my pictures are like strange captures of ghosts under-the-sea. But in the meantime, the camera itself has a high enough kitsch factor that I enjoy him just for his pretty face.

  1. Did you shield the image from light properly? It looks like you may need to clean your camera’s rollers as well. That is what is causing the bright spots and horizontal lines.

  3. I remember those! These must be collectors items by now. You could probably find a one by stopping by a few garage sales on the weekend. Still a cool camera no matter what new and exciting gadgets we come up with.
