Making the past work again, cheap!
When it comes to shooting instant packfilms like 669, 690, FP100C and the like, there is nothing better than an original Automatic Land Camera.
Polaroid saw fit to put batteries in them which, today, seem strange. Oddly shaped things with what appear to be 9V clips? While you can find these batteries in specialty shops, they certainly aren’t cheap. And you aren’t going to find them when off on vacation either. Some models take 2, others take 3, but in the end you’ll have a camera with batteries you’ve probably already got lying around. Better yet, they can be found worldwide and last for hundreds of shots!
If you have any Automatic Land Camera from the Model 100 to 450 and any number in-between, now is your chance to get it working again.
All you have to do is box up your camera safely and send it to me. On your approval I will do all the work needed and finally, only with your satisfaction, ask for any payment.
$25 What you get: discontinued until further notice. Check the how-to section for DIY instructions though!
