    "This polaroid vintage camera makes me feel like I am back in the good ol 80s. It weights hardly anything, it folds down so it can be carried anywhere and uses a flash system that can produce amazing photos. You can take old time photos with it or keep it for a treasure. "

    "It is difficult to find quality, working vintage cameras for less than $350, but I wanted to add one to my hobby collection. It's nice to have devices that aren't connected to the internet to take pictures in private. The upside to this camera is that it folds up and protects the lens. The downside is that the film is expensive. But if you are a vintage camera collector this is something you should be used to."

    "O-M-G, I have never used such a stupid ugly camera before. How is this thing supposed to even work? Like, where does the memory card even go?!"

    "The Polaroid SX-70 is an old instant camera from the 70's. It did a great job of taking instant pictures back in those days but I wouldn't recommend it today. Unless you're looking to take a certain type of old-looking photo then there isn't a need for this old camera. Get one of the newer models that have the updated technology. I really don't know why anyone would want this old model except for collector reasons."

    "Wow! Talk about the good ole days! Way before we had cell phones with cameras. There was The Poloroid. It was one of the first instant picture devices made! You just had to point shoot and presto! You had a photo. When these first came out you had to drop off your film and wait a week or so to get your pics back. "

    "I really enjoy this camera it takes me back to my days growing up. It is in great working condition considering the age and it takes pictures nicely. I enjoy having it around for parties and fun gatherings. The leather on it is nice and not really worn out and feels smooth."

    "I didn't know these were still available. I guess only in vintage. I remember Christmas and Hannukkah parties where my Dad & Uncle would take photos with this magistic camera. Love it!"

    "Definitely worth the price; its a great camera The worn leather makes it appear old and vintage which gives it charm. Just love this type of camera and happily it's way under $400!"

    "This camera is only worth it if you are a collector. I didn't find the photo quality to be anything special, and it feels fragile. I would recommend going with a more modern iteration for something well built and to save some money."
