📎 Camera overview:
The Polaroid Pronto! is an instant camera for the SX-70 format. It is identical to the Polaroid 2000. The color of the round shutter release is green or red, depending on the copy. It was built by Polaroid in the 70s.
The Polaroid Pronto! dates back to the 70s and was sold for the international market, outside of America. The body was made of plastic. The lens (Polaroid Polatriplet 9.4/116 Color Corrected Coated) in the instant camera is fixed.
The lens has a focal length of 116 mm. The camera does not have a zoom. The camera automatically selects the aperture and exposure time. You can have some influence on the exposure with the light/dark control. This is located on the front below the viewfinder window. The viewfinder is very simple and does not give any further information about the camera’s settings.
A flash can be connected to the socket for flashbars. The Polaroid Pronto! does not have a connection for a cable release or a self-timer.
The camera is designed for SX-70 films. Here, for example, there is the Polaroid Color Film for SX-70 for color pictures. If you want to take monochrome pictures, the Polaroid B&W Film for SX-70 would be an option.
There are eight images in a film pack. In the past, the frame count was ten, so the frame counter also shows ten. After the picture is taken, a motor automatically transports the image out of the camera, and the development of the instant picture begins.
The battery for the Polaroid Pronto! is located in the film cassette. With each film change, the battery is changed so automatically.
📎 Technical features:

These cameras take a lot of light for proper exposure. If you plan on shooting indoors or in shade you will need a flash. When shooting without a flash always shoot outdoors in bright sunlight.
All cameras are original vintage Polaroid cameras that have been fully tested with actual film and cleaned thoroughly. The camera will ship in good to excellent cosmetic condition and be guaranteed to work.
