Photojojo's Beautifully-Restored 70s Polaroid Is Worth the $300S

Polaroid's latest cameras are interesting looking, but really, ain't nothing like the real thing: a vintage, gorgeously futuristic instant film SX-70. They haven't been sold since 1977—but you can snag one for $300. There are only 50. Tempting!

Each SX-70 is restored to out-of-box condition, Photojojo claims, and this is a camera for which condition matters: the things are fantastic pieces of design. The SX-70 collapses perfectly into itself, a la Bond, aside from taking the self-developing snaps you know a million times over. You can even pick up some instant film, so you can do more than just stare at the thing. There are some deliciously-designed cameras out these days, but it's hard to imagine anything approaching this piece of hardware from several decades ago. Which is a shame. [Photojojo]
