This is a good working and looking Polaroid Land Camera 360 Electronic Flash. The camera is in good cosmetic condition with normal signs of use and a few scuffs and scratches on the outer shell. The lens is clean, clear, and scratch free. Viewfinder works great as well as the shutter and all the shutter speeds seem accurate but only the 75 speed has been film tested using Fuji FP100C film. The timer on the back of the film door has not been tested and needs a separate battery to operate. Sometimes the timer will press on the film pack and cause jamming on the first few pieces of film. If you feel the film tab starting to rip when pulling it out stop pulling and open the film door a tiny bit. It sometimes happens when pulling out the dark slide and the first 2 pieces of film.
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.
This camera takes the Fuji Pack film FP-100C or FP-3000B.
More information about this camera.
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' light meter beside the lens
- Designed for Polaroid 100-series Pack film
There is a very large variety of 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, molded plastic bodies and many lack a tripod socket.
All these cameras produce 7.2×9.5cm prints on Polaroid 100-series pack film, 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.
The viewfinder common in the series is that used on the 250,350 and other 3-element glass lens models: a high quality Zeiss-Ikon designed, single-window, parallax-corrected combination range and viewfinder.
