    Can anyone suggest a way to mount an SX-70 on a tripod?

    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.

    Thanks again,

    FWIW, I saw an SX-70 and tripod adapter in an auction site listing this morning.
