    I believe that the alpha models used higher quality lenses

    Interesting. The Land List didn't mention any variation in the lenses between the first few models:

    Completely my mistake, I obviously need to do more research before I rely on a hazy memory.
    I'm very, very sorry. I never mean to misrepresent any piece of gear.

    I have an SX-70 (original model) that came with a specially made Nissin electronic flash unit. The unit's model name is FP70x. It clamps to the bottom of the camera and has a handy tripod socket. Works very well. I just got a pack of the Impossible Project's PX 70 Push! color shade 100 ASA film and will be trying it out carefully with and without flash (paying attention to all the warnings on the IP website!).
    I'm curious to see what develops, so to speak.

    Hey joe.

    Could you maybe post some pictures up on here? How much extra if you posted it to Australia? Is it even still up for sale?

    The post to Australia would be and extra $21.40.
    I'm unsure of how to post pictures in a thread, best bet would be to PM me your email address.
    I'm sorry for the problem.

    The camera definitely can be used with electronic flash. As others have mentioned, the SX-70 was one of the best cameras ever made. The loss of the TZ Supercolor film was the sad end of a great era.

    model 3 can't be used with flash, because it's a rangefinder.
    (though there should be a socket on top of the viewfinder?)
    original, alpha (I) and model 2 have a socket for flash on top of the lens.
