3 away from 1000!

Shooting a photo-a-day basically requires you have a camera on you at all times, and Felix here goes everywhere with us. 

One of the main distinctions between this Polaroid SX70 Sonar OneStep and a regular SX70 is the strange apparatus located above the lens. This is known as an electrostatic transducer, and is Polaroid’s cutting edge (circa 1978) autofocus system. Using sonar technology, the camera sends out a series of chirps that hit its subject and bounce back to the camera, telling it exactly where to focus. After all these years the technology is surprisingly accurate! 

This camera is a dream to use and would be a great first camera for anyone interested in getting into instant photography.
