                                                               Description:

Overall, clean and in good condition, few faint scratches on the brushed metal, but nothing that impacts camera operation.  

The 100 also introduced most of the features that would become common across the higher-end models in this range, though it lacks the Zeiss designed combination rangefinder/viewer assembly the later models would adopt. Instead it features separate windows for composition and focusing, a style that would become common across much of the mid-tier range of folding Pack film cameras. The features it has in common with high-end models such as the 250 and 350 are:

  • Tripod mount on all-metal body
  • Folding optical system, allowing all delicate parts of the camera to be collapsed into cover.
  • 3 element glass lens (114mm f8.8)

Review

I am extremely surprised with the versatility of the Land Camera, especially since it is 45+ years old. It still gives me those excellent highlights and deep shadows that I am looking for. I was a bit wary at first when I considered jumping into Polaroid pack film cameras because I thought that the money spent on film could never be worth the image created. But, in hindsight, I would definitely say that I was in the wrong. I wouldn't trade this camera for anything (well, unless someone was willing to give me a ULF camera, and even then it would be a tough decision because this was given to me as a gift of sorts). I will keep shooting the Fuji instant film - I don't have much of a choice with 8 boxes sitting on the desk next to me pleading to be used. I hope you've enjoyed your Land Camera as much as I have, but if you don't have one yet, then what are you waiting for!? Get out there and find one!
