    Perhaps a mirror cleaning on my SX-70???

    Good evening.

    No doubt my rollers need a good cleaning which I did not too long ago, but here is a photograph from the new Silver/shade film from my Polaroid SX-70.

    See the 3 dark spots. What could these be from. There on several but not all (Strange)

    Can someone that has this camera please explain how I might clean the mirror please because I think this may be the source.
    thank you very much.

    Geez- they look like the finger holes on a bowling ball. I'd be extremely cautious trying to clean the mirror, its a 'first surface' mirror, you could easily remove the coating. Thats something I wouldn't try, but then I'm a total clutz these days.

    I know Rick, I can't think of what could be causing these stains?
    Thank you.

    Check one of the earlier threads on the new Silver Shade film before you go trying to clean the camera. Odd spots, stains and other "defects" seem to be quite common with this first batch of the new film.

    nyoung, thank you very much. I did not see that thread at all and I'm going to search for it now.
    Boy, that would be such a relief.

    Those kind of marks are pretty typical for PX100 film.
