POLAROID Automatic 350 Land Camera with AAA battery conversion and manual - uses fuji 100c or 3000b - film tested and working

$129.99

This is a great working and looking Polaroid Automatic 350 Land Camera. The camera is in great cosmetic condition with a few scuffs and scratches but not bad for its age. The lens is clean and clear and scratch free, and the viewfinder is clean, clear, and accurate.

Converted to use AAA batteries. Unfortunately, the timer on the back of the camera is no longer functional. The timer might also add pressure to the fuji film pack on the first 2 shots. If you are having trouble pulling out the film just open the film door a tiny bit and continue pulling the film. Be careful not to rip the film tab or dark slide.


One thing you should know about the shutter and electronic eye on the pack film cameras. Push and hold the shutter button down until the shutter has opened and closed. If you are in a low light area and you push the shutter quickly it will not stay open long enough and your image will be underexposed. You can play around with it without film in the pack to figure out how it works.

Polaroid 100-400 series

This series of Polaroid cameras, starting with the Automatic Land Camera 100 and finishing at the Automatic Land Camera 450, all share a common set of features:

- Folding bellows
- Automatic exposure, with an external 'Electric Eye' lightmeter beside the lens
- Designed for Polaroid 100-series Packfilm

There is a very large variety within this vast range of essentially similar folding Polaroid models. The best 'standard' models are the 100, 250, 350, and 450 variants of the line. These feature a coupled rangefinder designed by the German firm Zeiss Ikon, rigid metal bodies and 3 element glass lenses. Most other models, such as the 103, 220 or 430 have a much cheaper build quality and features including plastic lenses, rigid viewfinders, moulded plastic bodies and many lack a tripod socket.

All these cameras produce 7.2×9.5cm prints on Polaroid 100-series packfilm, and the more expensively produced models can be capable of very good results. Many accessories were made for these cameras including, but not limited to, portrait kits, close-up kits, and electric external flashes.

There are several main types of view and range finder used throughout the folding land camera series, the most common being a two-window split system (as featured on the Automatic 100) whereby the user first makes focus using a small window with a circular (or, more commonly, square) shifting ranged image, and then moves the eye to a larger non-parallax corrected viewfinder with marked frame-lines for composing the shot.

This type of viewfinder was on all the very early models in the series, and continued to be used on many of the mid- and low-tier models over the life cycle of the folding packfilm camera series. Both folding and non-folding models of this viewfinder type exist; the folding type is more common on early models with higher quality lenses.
