polaroid slr 680

The penultimate example of SX-70 technology.

Manufactured from 1982 to 1987, the Polaroid SLR 680 was an evolution of the SX-70 that included a built in flash and used 600 film. The Polaroid SLR 680 was succeeded by the Polaroid SLR 690, introduced in 1996. This site is a tribute to the Polaroid SLR 680 and its SX-70 ancestors.

Commissioned in 1982, this stamp sculpture was intended to sit in front of the headquarters of Standard Oil of Ohio. However, British Petroleum acquired Standard Oil of Ohio during the fabrication process. The management at British Petroleum did not care for the sculpture and put it in storage. Eventually the City of Cleveland took ownership of the stamp and placed it in a public park in 1991.
