Description

The Polaroid Super Swinger was a rigid plastic-bodied instant camera made in the UK in 1972 and sold at a retail price of £7.30, making it the cheapest Polaroid camera ever. Called the Zip in the US, this camera could only have black and white photos with an ISO of 3000. Correct exposure was enabled via a curious twisting motion on the shutter button. A checkerboard would reveal the word YES when the electric eye registered the correct amount of light.
