Polaroid Instant 20 Land Camera Shots

As I wrote in this post, my uncle in Ireland sent me his old Polaroid Instant 20 Land Camera which he bought in 1977. Despite its old age, the camera is in great working order so I decided to take it out for a spin around San Jose this weekend.

I loaded up a pack of Polaroid Type 84 film which is a ISO 100 speed black and white square format film. This film expire in 2007 but most of the shots worked out OK. I did have to play with the exposure a bit since the camera doesn’t have an ISO 100 setting instead it uses 75 ISO.

Switzer’s Receipt For A Polaroid Instant 20 Land Camera

Today I received an old Polaroid camera from my uncle in Ireland. It is a Polaroid Instant 20 Land Camera and comes in its original box with manual and this receipt from Switzers, Dublin.

The receipt is from December 24th, 1977 and is for

  • Instant 20 camera ….  £19.95
  • Double pack of film ….  £6.28
  • 1 box of flashes  ….  £1.34

Over the next few days I will test it out to see if the shutter still works.  If it does I still have a few boxes of type 84 in my fridge which are hopefully still good.
