The Polaroid SX-70 Experience course is one like no other.  We are going to look at the Polaroid SX-70 camera, yep, the one from the 70’s.  I am not going to go out and use the camera, nor am I going to tell you to run out and buy the latest and greatest SX-70.  In this course, we will talk about the experience of owning an SX-70 combined with the fun of replicating the effects in Photoshop.
