Welcome to the world of Polaroid. I think the Automatic 100 and Automatic 250 are the two best Polaroids made. The 250 has a single window viewfinder but the 100 is the very first pack film camera and gets it for historic value. Yours is extra special because of the family ties. Unfortunately Fuji h...

Some of the type 80 cameras had a plastic spacer that could be removed but many do not. The good news is that there are plenty of cheap type 100 cameras around, just look in flea markets and yard sales. Look at the 'Cameras' section here for models.

Hi Peter, Even though your 180 is quite rare, the viewfinder assembly is the same as a Polaroid 250 and those are available cheap at flea markets and yard sales. I think the rollers and other parts are also interchangeable. Pete PS: I replied to both threads so please feel free to delete the other o...

Great find! I have one just like it and yes it did come off of a metallurgical microscope. Because it has the brackets, you should be able to adapt it to all kinds of cool stuff.

Update: Willem has informed that the filming is almost complete and they hope to release the movie at an independent film festival this spring. David Gant has autographed my Polaroid 100 and it will be sent back to me. There are lots of updates and stuff on the website. Be sure to let Google transla...

The Polaroid backs are made for 4x5 cameras. I had to craft the back onto my 3x4 Speed. It was quite easy and the 3x4 camera matches perfect to the Polaroid pack film. You could probably do the same for your 2x3 but you will need to widen the film gate opening. Your 105mm lens would make a nice wide...

Welcome Tooth, I would recommend that you pick up a ColorPack II camera (avoid the "Square Shooters") and some Fuji FP100C film. They are usually about $5 - $10 at flea markets and take common batteries. Once you get comfortable and see what the rest of us are shooting, you can move on to ...

Tooth,
The main thing to be wary of is that no film is available for this camera. That is why they go so cheap. The larger roll film cameras can be converted to use pack film. The J66 cameras are pretty much shelf queens.

Once a Polaroid print is ejected from the camera, the pods break and release the developing chemicals. Pushing the print back in the camera will not allow a second exposure. The only way I know is to make both exposures before ejecting the print. It is quite easy on pack film cameras but I am not su...
