Re: The Polaroid Camera


It will take me a while to bring everything up to date in the catalogue.

I think you have a pretty good argument that the camera is an 80 (A/B). When I get a chance, I will update the article to include pictures of the 80’s and the argument for them. Without more information, I think we must remain somewhat open-ended about the camera.

Re: The Polaroid Camera


The Camera Case manual says :

" Polaroid compartment case #382 custom-fitted for the Polaroid Highlander Land Camera"


the Model 80 is a Highlander Land Camera.

The show correct case came fitted for specifcally Highlander versions only so that says alot ! we will have to compare all the models and variations w/ pics but that narrows it down by a considerable margin....just by that definition I favor the 80 series as being the logical choice.

The camera that came with the correct case I got is a Model 80A in a light tan/cream color....

I would like to see other color variations.

Re: The Polaroid Camera


The 80A and 80B are to the 80, like the 95A and 95B are to the 90. The J33 is completely different.


The 95s (along with a large section of early polaroid cameras) were of the Series 40 Picture Rolls. (3 1/4" by 4 1/4", with an image area of 2 7/8" x 3 3/4, in general)

The 80s and J33 were of the Series 30 Picture Rolls. ((2 1/2" x 3 1/4", with an image area of 2 1/8" x 2 7/8")

Re: The Polaroid Camera


it looks like all of the 80 series came in the cream/tan color.

I did a check of the 80 series on ebay using "80A camera" and "polaroid highlander" in the search bar and came up with more correct cases w/ the camera included.

Image

Image

Image



it seems they all come in that color scheme.....I did a search of the J33 camera and not even 1 came in the correct case.

The J33 ran from 1961 to 1963 with a production of approx. 280,000 - 350,000 sold at a cost of $74.95 ea.

The 80 series ran from 1954 - 1961 and they churned out approx. 1.6 million sold at a cost of $72.75 ea.

It would seem more and more that the 80 series is the probable choice.

Re: The Polaroid Camera HERE WE GO AGAIN !!


It appears that The Camera in The Camera Case is a Polaroid Land Camera Model 100 or 101 (not much difference between the two)...I side with the 100.

Jess's pic:

Image

and The Model 100:

Image

Image

Model 101:

Image

Image


But these cameras were made AFTER 1963 !!??!!

so time-wise these could not be right...but it is the camera seen in the case......

we have a conundrum here !!

the model 80 series fits the case and fits the timeline....

the model 100 or 101 IS in the camera case..but made two years after the event....

The model 95 is seen on the Order shrine and fits the timeline...but does NOT fit into the correct case....


Oh what on earth to do !! do we each own three cameras to have the right one ?? or do we go with the model 100 & 101 because it is what is in the case ???

Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi !! which one is right ??

Re: The Polaroid Camera


I stopped at the 101...the 102 & later yr models would seem to be too new...I tried to stay as close to 1961 as possible.

the 104 is not it from the plastic frame of the camera...it could be a 103 but i would bet it is not a 103.


I am sticking with 100 or 101...this camera thing has worn me out !! if I buy another camera it will be the last.....I will go 100 and be done with the camera issue...until we get a good definative pic of the camera.
