CatLABS Swordfish Manual Control Polaroid Pack Film Camera with 127mm Lens


***Special order item***

Swordfish cameras are built on order. 5 week lead time.

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

This camera started out as a high-end, Polaroid 360, all metal body camera. Equipped with a Zeiss Ikon rangefinder/view finder unit, a super cool ergonomic grip and a tripod socket. All electronics have been removed from this camera and it is now fully manual and ready to go.

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