Iconic in its own right, the Polaroid Automatic Land Camera 100 ushered the era of Polaroid’s 100-series instant pack film.
Produced from 1963 until 1966, the Polaroid Automatic Land Camera 100 is the first model in the 100-400 folding rangefinder series made by the Polaroid Corporation. It is the first mass-produced camera to feature an electronic shutter, and it is also the first Polaroid camera to use pack film.
