Produced: 1957-1960 / Original Retail: $169.50
Estimated Production: 92,000 - 100,000

Quite a bit different than the Model 110:

  • Lens: 127mm, f/4.7, 4-element Rodenstock Ysarex. (other variations exist)
  • Shutter: Prontor SVS, 1 - 1/300 plus Bulb. (other variations may exist)
  • Flash: M,X sync via a standard PC connector and Polaroid "hot shoe"
  • Exposure set either by conventional speeds/apertures, or by EV numbers.
  • Built-in self-timer. ("V" setting on shutter)
  • Double-window viewfinder/rangefinder on top of camera, with automatic parallax compensation (similar to Model 150).
  • Focus knob on camera bed.
  • Polished steel body with grey textured covering
  • Hinged 'captive' lens cap. Late production models have an f/90 "pinhole" in the lens cap. This alternate lens cap was also available from Polaroid as a retrofit for earlier 110A's, so its presense shouldn't be taken as a sure sign of the camera's age.
  • Late production models have extra light seals (indicated by a serial number starting with the letter 'L') and slightly later ones yet also have a locking cutter bar.

Note: This camera is sometimes found with a different lens/shutter combination (i.e. an Ennit lens in a Prontor shutter). These variations may have only been offered in versions sold outside North America.

Produced: 1952-1957 / Original Retail: $249.50
Estimated Production: 14,000 - (21,000)

  • Lens: 127mm, f/4.5, 4-element Wollensak Raptar
  • Shutter: Wollensak Rapax, 1 - 1/400, plus Bulb and Time
  • Flash: M,X sync via a bi-pin sync connector
  • Folding viewfinder, with collapsible manually-set wire frame parallax compensation device
  • Coupled Kalart rangefinder mounted on top of body next to viewfinder
  • Focus knob on camera bed
  • Top of rangefinder has an exposure calculator for converting Polaroid "Light Value" numbers to/from equivalent conventional shutter speed and aperture settings.
  • Polished steel (and/or chromium) body with black textured covering

Note: Early production models have a pushbutton film release switch and film spool clips as in the original Model 95; later models have the flip-style switch for the film release as in the 95A and later cameras. In addition, some examples of this camera have some chrome-plated trim rather than plain base metal. The presense of chrome plating would seem to be random, however, and does not appear to correspond consistently to cameras of particular serial number ranges.

Produced: 1954-1957 / Original Retail: $??.??
Estimated Production: Insufficient Data (probably < 10,000)

Similar to the Model 95A except:

  • Special commercial/industrial model; modified heavy-duty shutter and rollers, and (possibly) lens made to stricter tolerances.
  • Polished steel body with black or grey(?) textured covering
  • Was also originally available as part of a complete kit for making ID pictures.

Note: Not to be confused with the far more common "Automatic 100" packfilm camera, which is an entirely different model.

Collector's Note: Very Uncommon. All of the (few) examples of this camera that I've seen have a covering that is black in color. I've heard said that a grey version may also exist, but I've never seen any real evidence to support this.
