Before digital photography….Polaroid was the innovator of instant photos. The finest example of Polaroid cameras….the SX-70. The SX-70’s design is supberb….the camera folded into a compact rectangular position….in addition to the revolutionary technology for the camera and film pack. The film pack provided the profits to fund Polaroid research.
The comparison can easily be made between Apple and Polariod….both had strong leaders/innovators….both diligently protected their patents.
The SX-70 was outstanding design and technology for its time….my SX-70 being nicely encased in a leather carrying case.
