Polaroid Swinger Camera

Discussion in 'Extreme, Retro, Instant and More' started by ken_riley|4, May 3, 2007.

  1. -Lens: Meniscus (single element, plastic) -Shutter: Single speed rotary, everset, 1/200 second -Flash: built-in flashgun for AG-1 bulbs -Exposure setting assisted via built-in photometer -Fixed focus -Rigid white plastic body COLLECTOR'S NOTE: Probably the most common/plentiful camera of any kind ever made (and therefore basically worthless in today's market). Literally millions were sold. This camera was very inexpensive compared with all other previous Polaroid cameras, and introduced a lot of young people to instant photography. [...and the heavy advertising towards the youth market didn't hurt either.] Info used here is from The Land List: http://www.rwhirled.com/landlist/landhome.htm Collector's value: $1-$5 See our picture below.

  2. Well it only cost $19.95 new. I still remember the jingle for the ad.
     
  3. And film is no longer available, so it's useless.
     
  4. convert it to 120 film it might be worth something ;)
     
  5. It was voted 0ne of the top Tech inventions of the last 100 years by PC magazine. It put instant Photography within the reach of teens and poor people. I had a few. I have 1 now that is becoming a Franken Camera with a lens from a A95 and 120 rollers installed. A work in progress I work slow.
