No, the colour isn't off. This is gold. Apparently 24 carat, according to the eBay description when I bought it for an arm and a leg.

Of course, this is now the almost defunct Polaroid SX-70 camera, only worth having now through the perseverance of companies like The Impossible Project. The fact it's gold is because it's a limited edition version. It doesn't mean it takes better photos.

Fact: I've never used this one as I have two other Polaroid cameras that are far more reliable and didn't cost the Earth. Here it is though in all its glory.
