The Polaroid Captiva instant features built-in "fill" flash, through-the-lens viewing, and a front-element lens. Last effort from Polaroid to come up with something interesting. The concept of a folding SLR was always a fetish for the brand, culminating in the wonderful SX-70. In 1993 the Captiva/Vision was an autofocus SLR, but a far cry from the 35mm techno brigade. This is a large plastic camera, the sole innovation was that the picture came out in a window. Neat, but not enough, in the end, to hold off the digital age. Still, I think it is an important camera for Polaroid, the last true effort and the beginning of their demise.
