I contemplate. I procrastinate. I think over and over and over again before eventually committing to buy a $500 dollar camera. That said, I will probably be the last person to drop, I don’t know, say, US$1,230 on an instant camera. You must be asking. What kind of instant camera costs that much? Well, that would be the Saint Laurent kind.

Saint x Laurent Polaroid SX70 Leopard Instant Camera

The renowned French fashion house which some people fondly remember as Yves Saint Laurent or YSL has partnered with Polaroid to release a unique, very collectible Polaroid SX70 instant camera, called the Saint x Laurent Polaroid SX70 Leopard.

Saint x Laurent Polaroid SX70 Leopard is a fixed focus lens, autofocus instant camera made in collaboration with YSL, featuring 80% steel and 20% other fibers. The product, as the name suggests, is compatible with SX70 films, and it is a Saint Laurent Rive Droite exclusive made in the Netherlands.

There is really nothing to talk about but I do have to admit that the leopard print does make this instant snapper a striking piece. Clearly, it is not for everyone. I mean, for the love of God, that’s a hell lot of Benjamins for an instant film camera.

While this is not the first time Polaroid has lent its camera to fashion labels like Lacoste, Teva and even high-street fashion labels, Fendi, the Saint x Laurent Polaroid SX70 Leopard Instant Camera is the priciest yet. It’s a good 250 bucks more than Fendi’s which we, admittedly, adore.
