The Polaroid 103 was produced from 1965 until 1967 and retailing on release for $90.00. This camera is part of the series of Polaroid cameras that began with the Automatic Land Camera 100 and finishing at the Automatic Land Camera 450. The 103 shares a common set of features with all models in this line with folding bellows, 100-series pack-film, and automatic exposure with an external 'Electric Eye' light-meter beside the lens. Most of the cameras in the series had the Automatic label on the front lens escutcheon. The 103 is one of the earliest 'consumer' models of the 100-400 series line of folding pack-film Land Cameras, similar to many other models; this model features a folding, Polaroid-designed rangefinder and a 3 element glass lens. The 103 also has a fold-down coupled rangefinder designed by the German firm Zeiss Ikon, a zone-focusing viewfinder that features parallax-corrected marks for judging correct subject framing at different focal distances, a 114mm f8.8 lens, a B&W/Color selector switch, and a proprietary flash socket. The camera's electronics depend on an APX24 (A24PX, V24PX, RPX24, PX24, EPX24, 2LR50, 1308AP) 3V alkaline battery. The shutter is loaded manually and the red release button is on the top right of the camera and can be triggered even when the camera is closed. This series of Polaroid camera spanned from 1963 to 1977 with the Polaroid 430 the last in production.
