Folks...
I can't recommend RETROSPEKT enough!!! (y)(y)(y)

This camera is soooo well reconditioned and refurbished that I wear it just rolled off the 1996 Polaroid Japan assembly line! :happy:

My dusty pictures don't do it justice - I highly recommend Retrospekt! :)

Shot this one in VERY low light - would not have been able to manual focus with my SX-70 and I believe digital would have hunted a bit....Gottta love SONAR....:)
(Dust on the scanner and finger print on the photo!) :D:p:ROFLMAO:

Sweet pics from a sweet camera! This seems like one of Polaroid's crowning cameras. How do you like the ultrasonic rangefinding? I was one of the test users for that system. It was way ahead of it's time!

I do love it on my SLR 690 :happy: And you're correct, way ahead of its time even now.
I've always wondered why today's cameras don't have a sonic focusing option for extreme low light shooting?
