Standard Film for Vintage Polaroid SX-70' Cameras The Polaroid SX-70 works differently than other Polaroid cameras, so it has its own film with a lower ASA. A lower ASA often provides richer color and texture, which is why the SX-70 is so popular with artists, creatives, and professional photographers. Care for your camera Your camera has a set of rollers inside the film door. Each photo passes through these rollers as it's made, so it's important to make sure that they stay clean. If the rollers get visibly dirty then gently wipe them down with a soft, damp cloth. Store chilled, shoot warm Temperature affects how the film works. Keep it stored cold in the fridge, but never freeze it. Ideally you should let it adjust to room temperature before you use it. That's around 55'82'F (13'28'C). When it's cold out, keep your photos warm in a pocket close to your body while they develop. Or if it's a hot day, make sure they stay cool. Shoot with the light The more light in your shot,?the better your photo will turn out. Instant film loves light, especially natural light. Use the flash for all your indoor photos. For best results we also recommend using the flash?for outdoor shots, unless it's a bright sunny day. Develop in the darkAll photos appear blank at first. They're most sensitive during this time, so don't bend or shake them. Shield them from the light and place them face down as they develop. Keep B&W photos shielded from light for about 1 minutes.
