Can anyone suggest a way to mount an SX-70 on a tripod?
You mean without the SX-70 tripod accessory? I've tried before but its kinda hard without those things.
I can't remember if the original SX-70 has a tripod socket but the Sonar version does. I had both of these and I don't remember if I ever use the original one on a tripod. I did use the Sonar version on a tripod and in fact I dropped and broke it when trying to mount it on a tripod in total darkness. I was brand new, I just got home from the store where I bought it. Lukily the store gave me a new one.
There is a tripod accessory bracket, Polaroid part #111, which clips on to the sides of the body and is wedge shaped so that the camera is level when the tripod head is. B&H has a used one in stock for $10.
1/4 20 screw and a lot of super glue, this is what I did with my holga before they started making them with mounts.
Thanks for the posts, I didnt realise there was an official holder. Not sure whether to do a diy job or buy the holder. But B&H shipping comes to a massive $35 for their holder, thanks for the tip but wouldnt pay that.
What film are you using for this camera?
Time-Zero, I've 14 packs left.
FWIW, I saw an SX-70 and tripod adapter in an auction site listing this morning.
Apparently, another company is selling an SX-70 film.
I've never used it.
For SX70 and other polaroid film plus accesories such as an ND filter to let you use 600 film in your SX70 also try www.unsaleable.com
I have no affiliation with this company
I got one, thanks. Also got the close up attachment
Years after the original post I know (!), but for anyone else looking for a tripod head that fits the SX-70, the tiny Manfrotto 484RC2 mini ballhead with q/r plate works well.
