    Good Grief, even a non-photographer would recognize the error here (providing they're over the age of 14).

    That's actually quite funny. Was that written by Eastmans Great Grandchildren or something?

    Perhaps the writer should learn to read before writing :D

    Then look up the word "antique" :smile: Followed by a visit to "The Impossible Project" website.

    If you already know the truth, why bother with checking the facts?

    Looks like some kind of auto written site, with lots of commercial links. Probably just set up to earn affiliate fees.

    Yet another reason to stick with APUG for photographic info on the web.

    It also says at the bottom that it's filed under "digital cameras" and was posted in June 2007.

    Clearly someone at Kodak in 1970 had the brilliant idea that the market was ready for a new antique camera, and came up with the concept of the SX70 instant picture antique camera.

    Alas, Kodak has lost its way since those heady days, and has forgotten how to make and market antique cameras.

    I wish I could afford the Nikon D3X antique camera.

    That was funny, can't believe that anyone can make such a mistake.

    What model Polaroid is actually shown in the photo? It's not an SX-70. I'm not expert on Polaroid models, but that's a later vintage camera, isn't it?

    According to this image at The Land List, that's some variant of a Polaroid Sonar camera (which did take SX-70 film).

    I actually own a REAL Kodak Instant Camera, one of the few (?) not sent back to Kodak after they lost the lawsuit Polaroid brought against them.

    I suppose that many people still equate "Kodak" with everything photographic!

    But that's no excuse for getting facts so wrong in a written article. :rolleyes:

    The problem is that all too many people think that AGFA made Gevaert film, while all along it was Gevaert who made AGFA film.
    A disgrace, it is...

    I believe that Ilford makes the D3x antique camera.
