The Polaroid SX-70 is a foldable instant camera that was first introduced in 1972 with a price of $180 ($1,258.69 in today’s money).

There were four main types of the SX-70 produced: the original, SX-70 Model 2, SX-70 Model 3, and SX-70 Sonar OneStep.

The most significant upgrade to the SX-70 cameras came in the SX-70 Sonar OneStep, which added automatic focus using Sonar to the camera while still being able to fold and still keeping the ability to manual focus.

Today, the SX-70 series of cameras are still prized by many photographers for its unique look and feel – especially since Polaroid SX-70 film is still being produced for it. The vintage camera has also become a popular collectible and is often sought after by those who appreciate its retro appeal and historical notoriety.

Frequently Asked Questions about Polaroids and Self Timers

Why do we have to use a self-timer?

The self-timer is a feature found on many cameras that allows you to take a picture after a delay of several seconds – on Polaroids, it’s usually 8 to 10 seconds. Self-timers are often used when taking selfies, group photos, photos requiring a slow shutter, or night photography when it’s important to keep the camera still when taking images.

How long is the timer on a Polaroid camera?

Polaroid cameras have a self-timer between 8 and 10 seconds with some as long as 20 seconds and as short as 3 seconds, depending on your camera model and if you are using a smartphone app. This dealy gives you enough time to take the picture and prepare for the next shot while taking selfies, group shots, or images with a long exposure. It can also allow for the image to develop correctly before taken out of the camera.

How do you use the self-timer on a Polaroid?

The self timer on a Polaroid camera is normally indicated as a standalone button on the front or top of the camera. Generally, you press the self timer button on the camera and then press the shutter button to engage the self timer feature on the camera. Read this guide on Instant Cameras a with self-timer to see how to use the feature on models produced after 2008.

Does Polaroid 600 have a self-timer?

Only specific Polaroid 600 cameras have a built-in self-timer: the 600 Impulse AF, 600 Impulse SE, the One600 Ultra, and One600 Pro. On these cameras, the self-timer can be used by clicking the button with a clock symbol, and the seconds will be shown on the small display on the camera.

Conclusion

If you’re looking for a Polaroid with a self-timer, these were some of the most popular vintage and modern versions with a self timer. All of these cameras have an option for between a 8 to 10-second timer, which gives you enough time to get into position for your picture. Some of these cameras, like the SX-70 series don’t have a built-in self timer but the function can be added with an adapter.
