In this twelfth episode of Matt Loves Cameras, I review a rolled gold classic: the Polaroid SX-70. Is this the most revolutionary, iconic camera of all time?
This episode covers the background of Edwin Land, a brief history of Polaroid Corporation, the development of instant cameras and film throughout the 1940s, 50s, 60s and 70s, why this camera and its film are so iconic, and a description of the images I shot for this episode. I love Polaroid photos!
