::LOVE MY INSTANT CAMERA OF THE WEEK - POLAROID SX-70 ALPHA 1 GOLD EDITION::
Polaroid SX-70 Alpha 1 Gold Edition
Year of Birth: 1972
This (very) limited edition of Dr. Land's SX-70 Alpha 1 masterpiece is indeed 24-karat gold plated! And if you have happen to have a spare bob or two, you can currently bid on a mint condition model with handy accessories through the camera auction site, WestLicht Photographica Auction. With bids beginning at EUR 400, expect to pay premium prices on top of the final hammer price which is currently set at EUR 1.020! The rare edition isn't the only Polaroid model to have the gold treatment. You may remember my earlier post from last year on the rare gold Polaroid Spectra camera made in 1988 by Cartier. With it's dazzling three shades of gold, decorated with a sapphire top!
