In the late 1970s, Polaroid began to manufacture plastic-bodied non-folding cameras for their SX-70 film, as an alternative to the more expensive folding SX-70s. Numerous iterations of these “OneSteps” appeared through the early 80s, with slight design variations and features. The 500 is one of those iterations. The 500 cameras were European models and had a black and tan color scheme.
Like the other rigid plastic SX-70 OneStep models, The 500 had a single-element plastic lens, fixed focus, electronic shutter, programmed auto exposure and a socket for flashbars or electronic flash attachments.
The 500 camera works with any of Impossible’s SX-70 films which can be purchased HERE
