I am surprised at the low prices quoted for this camera, but judging from the auction results shown, I believe those prices have been compiled from results for the Polaroid Automatic 100, which is much more common, and brings prices more like those shown for this camera. The rollfilm 100 is one of the rarest, if not the rarest of Polaroid cameras. It is almost never seen. I have been collecting for over 40 years and had never seen one until last night when I spotted an example on ebay. What's more, in the course of some very serious searching for one over at least a couple of decades, I had never found a collector who had ever seen one, so it enjoys an almost mythical rarity. I have heard production figures in the very low 3-digit range, but have been unable to confirm anything about it except that it was a beefed up industrial version of the Model 95.

Luvantique, you are right. I have not seen this camera in auctions either. I'll see what pricing info I can find. Thanks!
