Promotional flyer for Polaroid Spectra System Onyx camera, on heavy black mounting board; hologram centered within the flyer is a green image of the parts inside the camera; below the hologram is written `A Polaroid "Mirage" hologram presents a striking three-dimensional perspective fo the advanced electronics, unique optics and sonar autofocusing technology fo the new Spectra system camera. The hologram is the visual centerpiece of the new Spectra system Onyx camera packaging. The Polaroid-produced hologram complements the camera's transparent housing, affording an equally dramatic view of the Spectra camera's decision-making electronic controls.'
