Video: Polaroid SX-70 Commercial by Charles and Ray Eames x The Cramps
Here's a bizarre intersection of a certain subset of my friends and our interests: a retro commercial filmed by Charles and Ray Eames for the Polaroid SX-70
, set by an unknown genius to The Cramps
"Garbageman." (I'm in there for everything but The Cramps, but I'm coming around to them, too.)
The SX-70 was a folding SLR and the first to use Polaroid's automatic format integral film, which didn't need to be separated from its back after being removed from the camera.
A later model of the SX-70 line used an autofocus system that used sonar to determine the distance from the lens to the subject.
