i usually know when i've messed up with this camera, but this time the result came as a total surprise. i have no idea what happened i didn't double click the shutter, there was no lag between me pressing the shutter and the camera ejecting the picture... i thought i had taken a perfectly normal shot. it wasn't until about 20 minutes later when the image had fully developed that i saw the double exposure. i wish i could tell you the big secret, but i don't know what it is this camera has a bit of a history though, i had a horrible accident with it a couple of years ago: i dropped it and it crash landed on the pavement (at the cemetery of all places!) and the whole viewfinder top fell off and broke into little pieces. i had to pronounce the camera as dead, and later got another sx-70. which also broke (it had a motor problem). so i sent my friend ~jierumi both of my broken cameras, and he did some sort of frankenstein manoeuver and attached the viewfinder from the camera with the broken motor to the camera that i had dropped at the cemetery. so i got my original sx-70 back and in working order, BUT it behaves a little odd sometimes... like in this shot
oh it gets even better, when i got the camera it already had quite a unique past: my friend in sweden gave me the camera. my friend is a nurse, and she found the camera in an abandoned locker in the basement of her work place. after some asking around she found out the camera had been used by the medical staff in the past to document injuries and such. when the digital camera came into the world, the old polaroid got shoved into a locker in the basement, and stayed in there for years and years... until my friend found it, and then sent it to me.
