History Of Use
The SLR 680 camera was a single-lens reflex, professional folding SLR instant camera with sonar auto-focus and a built-in electronic flash which automatically tilted depending on the focus distance. It utilized the same sonar autofocus technology as the 100-speed SX-70 Time Zero Autofocus models, but also features a built-in electronic flash. The SLR 680 also sported a 4-element 116 mm f/8 glass lens with a minimum focal length of 10.4 inches. It had an aperture range from f/8-f/22. Manual focus was possible, thanks to an override switch, which was located above the focusing wheel. The camera featured a socket for a remote shutter release, and also had a tripod socket and lugs for a neck strap. The original retail price was $265.
