My friend Minh from California, customizes Polaroid cameras and sends one to me now and then. This Polaroid 850 was made around 1962 and cost a pretty penny back then.






























































"Electric Eye !"




















































Film advance knobs on  a Polaroid ? Must be a Minharoid.


























































Set up for 35mm. A slight deviation from Edwin Land's design.

The camera will give you about eight exposures on on a 24 exposure roll.  What you see in the viewfinder isn't what you eventually get on your film. I'll get better with practice. The "electric eye" has been blind for a while so I used the manual EV system and Kodak Tri-X.
