Yes, there was a 24-karat-gold-plated SX-70.
A little silly, but if you’re into Polaroid, completely within bounds; this is a cult object, and cults like their icons precious. (I wouldn’t put it past Apple to produce a platinum iPad someday, either.) The Land List calls it a “(very) limited edition,” though how limited I don’t know.
Polaroid tried it again when the Spectra line came around in the eighties. Cartier edition, with gold and a sapphire on top, here.
Four were made. Somehow this seems even sillier to me, because that camera wasn’t even meant to be metal-plated, and its internals weren’t: gemstones against gray plastic is just weird. But it’s nice that someone cared.
