The Search For a Compatible Land Camera to Use in Europe

Postby Daniel_Patterson98 » Mon 18 April 2016 / 05:49 am

Hey everyone,
Over the past two years that I have shot film, I have used the Polaroid 215 and 360 Land Cameras, but this summer I will be going to Europe. The two models I use on a regular basis would be unwieldy when walking long distances while carrying other necessities, but I want to capture Europe with the great glow that only Polaroid pictures have. In short, I am looking for a Polaroid Land Camera that is good quality, affordable, but most importantly, compact. Do you have any suggestions for a portable Land Camera model that I could use abroad? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Dairy_Adventure

The best solution would be a propack. Light and compact, efficient, and you have the electronic flash as well.

Thanks for the lead. The ProPack looks like a solid camera for portable use. Do you know of any relatively small cameras with a focus that can be gauged through the viewfinder?

What about a Sx70, not the same films but foldable and easy to take with you on an adventure
