Polaroid 150 Land Camera

I acquired the Polaroid 150 Land Camera back in March of this year. I have a Polaroid 95A and I thought the 150 would be nice for my collection. I was fascinated by how big the camera’s were and how the back of the cameras would open up to accept the (once upon a time) Polaroid type 40 film. Polaroid manufactured the model 150 Land cameras between 1957 and 1960.

Just a few weeks ago a acquired some Polaroid Type 42 film with an expiration date of March 1984. I had never seen the film before, let alone I had no idea how to load the film into the camera. After a quick search online, I was able to find a manual with directions on loading the film into the camera. Sadly, the film was discontinued in 1980.

It’s actually pretty easy.
