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.
This model is a favorite because because it's the original model with rangefinder “split-field” focusing and unique “visible focus index guide” printed on the right side of the camera above the bellows. (see pix below)
