The Polaroid Autofocus 660 is a square-bodied instant camera, one of Polaroid's 600-series. It was the first in the range to use Polaroid's patented Sonar Autofocus device. The distance to the subject is calculated by firing an ultrasonic tone that bounced back to a gold-coloured receiver microphone behind a plastic grille.
