Polaroid 100 Automatic Land "Mad Men" Camera
The Polaroid 100 Automatic Land Camera - the original Automatic Land Camera as featured in the TV shows "Mad Men" and "Pan Am"! This 1963 metal-bodied camera features a superior glass lens, folding bellows, tripod thread and automatic exposure (with a Polaroid "electric eye").
Film Speed Settings - The Polaroid 100 has settings for FOUR film speeds of 75, 150, 300, and 3000 ASA PLUS switch which gives choice of two different aperture settings for each film speed setting.

Why the Model 100? This model is a favorite because because it's the original model with range finder “split-field” focusing and unique “visible focus index guide” printed on the right side of the camera above the bellows. (see pix below)
Inspected and fully tested by (FPP) Film Photography Project's Michael Raso, this camera was gently used by its original owner. Minor scuffs* from usage, this awesome, original 1963 Polaroid 100 operates perfectly for years of fantastic image making.
Battery Compartment Refurbish! The battery compartment on all of our Polaroid 100 Automatic Land Cameras have been gutted, cleaned and updated to take (3) fresh AAA batteries (included)!
