Problems with SX70

Postby edteach » Wed 11 August 2021 / 20:05 pm

I have bought two SX70s and sent both off to a repair service in Utah. He got them working sort of, but the exposure was under in one and over in the other exposed. I sold them both as parts or repair cameras. I really want a good working SX70 but have no idea where to look. Where would you guys recommend to go to buy a quality SX70 refurbished?

MiNT cameras sell refurbished, and even improved, SX70 cameras.

If you're in the US, then the two leading repair and refurbishment shops are Retrospekt and Brooklyn Film Camera

I can personally recommend Retrospekt. They also work directly with Polaroid themselves for refurbishments. They just make the USPS versions that Polaroid now sells.

You can also send them a camera to repair or convert from SX-70 to 600 natively.
