Your digital camera needs company.

This camera is in good working order, is clean, and in very nice cosmetic condition.

The 104 model was one of the early consumer grade Polaroid Land folding cameras. At under $60, it was a cost effective alternative to the much more expensive 100 model. To reduce production costs, this model used a plastic lens instead of glass, making it a good choice for a photographer looking for toy camera effects.

This camera comes with a new battery and a pack of Fujifilm FP100C film installed, minus one shot that I took to be sure that it worked (see last photo), so you have 9 shots left. This film is readily available from Fujifilm. The leather strap is in good condition. The lens looks very good. The battery and film compartments and rollers are very clean. The bellows are tight and appear fine. The face plate has some light marks on it which are difficult to see (photo 3).

The hard plastic case is in good vintage condition with some minor tarnish to the metal parts and some light marks from use. The foam padding retains a faint musty odor from storage. The cold clip’s adhesive strip (similar to electrical tape) has lost its stickiness and may need to be replaced. Please see photos.

The film installed in this camera has an expiration date of 9/2012. This film has been known to last years after its expiration date.

ABOUT OUR CAMERAS:
All of our vintage cameras are about 40 - 60 years old, so please understand that there may be some imperfections due to age. Most of these cameras have been in storage for a long time and may retain a slightly musty odor, however I clean each camera thoroughly inside and out with a mild cleaner. Although our cameras come from various places, we are a non-smoking home and are sensitive to scents, so we do our best to ensure that your camera is as clean as possible. We take time and care selecting, cleaning, and testing our cameras. We only sell cameras that we would personally use or give as gifts.

FUTURE MAINTENANCE:
Please remember that part of maintenance for a Polaroid camera includes periodically cleaning the rollers or spreader bars between film changes as chemicals from the film will build up and eventually cause corrosion. Batteries can also cause damage over time, so it is a good idea to remove the battery when the camera is not in use for an extended period.

SHIPPING:
Shipping cost is estimated for delivery to the west coast. If you live closer to the east coast, shipping may be less. International shipping may also be over-estimated. I will refund any overage over $1.

Whenever possible, we will use recycled materials to carefully pack your item. Your item will be shipped quickly via USPS Priority or Priority International with tracking and delivery confirmation.

If you are interested in vintage cameras and accessories, you might be interested in some of our other listings. Combined shipping rates below do not reflect actual discounts, which are determined based on weight and usually save you more money than estimated. We combine shipping based on the actual shipping cost and will refund any overage.

Thank you for stopping in!
