Polaroid Model 95: Made between 1948-1953 and was the first of many more cameras to come. Large body made of heavy cast aluminum, folding type with black bellows and has a brown leatherette covering, folding finder, and a sighting post attached to the shutter housing. Early models have a flexible spring sighting post while later models had a rigid post. Features a 135mm ~ f/11 lens and folding optical finder. Collector's value: $15-30.
Polaroid Model 95A: Made between 1954-1957 and was basicly the same as the Model 95. However, a wire frame finder replaced the sighting post used on the earlier Model 95. A couple more changes were made as well. An X-sync was added for a flash while the shutter speeds were increased to 1/12 - 1/100 second. Features a 130mm ~ f/8 lens and folding optical finder. Collector's value: $5-15.
|Polaroid 95B (Speedliner): Made from 1957-1961 and similar to the Model 95A. Polaroid got away from the "traditional speeds" by creating an "Exposure Value" system with this model. Instead of using traditional f/ stop names (f/8, f/11, f/16, etc.) each f/ stop opening was assigned a number. Thus the shutter is marked using the EV system. Lens: choice of 8 f/ stops ~ 130mm. X-sync for flash and folding optical finder. This camera was also known as the "Speedliner." Collector's value: $5-15.|
