This is a one of a kind, custom built camera, created by the polaroid team at CatLABS, and is a full manual conversion of a folding Polaroid land pack film camera.

This camera started out as a high end Polaroid 360 all metal body camera, which is equipped with a Zeiss Ikon rangefinder/view finder unit, a super cool ergonomic grip and a tripod socket.

This camera features a super sharp Mamiya P 127mm F4.7 lens, in a Press shutter.

All electronics have been removed from this camera and it is now fully manual and ready to go.

Rangefinder has been adjusted to accommodate for the 127mm lens, and is spot on, even at portrait distances. For best results at farther focusing distances, shooting at F8 or higher is recommended. When shooting landscapes at infinity, use the distance scale on the focus rack (or simply slide all the way in).
