I like shooting with older, more limited cameras. There’s less for me to think about, it’s more relaxing. I get more selective in my shots when it costs money every time I hit the shutter. But it does make you think just how far the cameras in our hands have changed today from what they were in film’s heyday. What users expect of their cameras has also changed to keep up with technology, too.
This video from Wired takes a look inside the Polaroid SX-70, an extremely popular camera in its day, and a somewhat more modern Canon EOS 1200D (Rebel T5). Everything from the basic ergonomics of the camera itself to advanced technical features are compared in this 90 second short.
