Chronology of cameras Polaroid 

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

This very large and very heavy camera goes back to 1961. It uses roll film.

The speed of exposure is controlled by a cell (Eletric Eye). The rangefinder is distinct from the viewfinder. The focusing is done using a serrated roller which is on the left flap of the bellows (hardly visible on the photograph). The shutter release is the button visible with the foreground, at the left end of this flap.

Thank you in Jean-Yves, the valorous friend who brought back it for me the USA in his bag. It has from now on an arm more muscular than the other!!
