Andy Warhol is one of the most famous figures in the art circles of the 20th century, and he is the pioneer and leader of Pop Art as well as an enthusiast of Polaroid camera. Recently, American Andy Warhol Museum decided to sell a PolaroidSX-70 which had been used by him on eBayat the price of $50,000 (about RMB 306,149.

The first prototype of PolaroidSX-70 came out in 1972, but Andy Warhol justdied in 1987, thus the camera had not been used for long, and eBay describes it as “Excellent Condition”. It is recorded that the last time he used the camera was 1986 in a nightclub, and Andy Warhol gave it to his friend - Bairdones afterwards.

Therefore, if you have the spare money of $50,000 and you also want to have distant talk and establish certain mental relation with the art master, the PolaroidSX-70 is a good choice.
