Polaroid roll film

Postby ElGreen » Sun 07 May 2017 / 21:05 pm

I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm doing research regarding a Polaroid Land Camera--1950's. I understand they used roll film? How did that work? Did it peel off like the current Polaroid film? How big were the pictures? Size and shape? And would that film still work today if someone found a camera and box of film in grandma's attic. I very much appreciate any help!

don't know the exact size (it says 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 in the film references - http://www.polaroid-passion.com/films-f ... .php?id=74), but smaller than pack 100.

and yes, it was a peel apart film.

and no, no way you'll find something still working nowadays. hell dry.

Polaroid camera roll film

Could an old Polaroid Land Camera 1950's be converted so it will accept new Fuji stack film? Would a camera shop make the modifications?? Thanks so much. Any information is appreciated.

Hi Ellen,
Yes of course, conversions are always possible in some craftsmen online as this one:
Or directly on EBay: one example
