Attn DIYers! Now available is a power pack for those that have an SX70 modded for 600 film. Now you can use i-type film in your SX70 (you can still use standard SX70 and 600 packs too). Simply attach the removable and modular power pack to power you SX70! Pack uses (3) AA batteries. We've tried just about all varieties of battery and this was the easiest and most practical solution.
**This is not a plug and play kit. You will also need to order the i-type battery door**.
Soldering and drilling for screws is needed. In addition to the 3D printed parts, you'll need the following parts from digikey: (qty 2) 36-5204_ND, (qty 1) 36-2478-ND, small screws to mount the battery holder to the housing and the spring contacts. Both battery terminals need to be soldered to the spring contacts. The bottom leather/vinyl needs to be removed on the camera and the diagnostic terminal holes need to be enlarged with a 1/2" spade bit. The camera also needs to be modified to use 600 film or an ND filter must be to compensate for the faster film speed.
