The Model 95 is the first of Edwin Land's instant picture cameras. Starting in 1948 and finishing in 1953 the Polaroid Corporation in Rochester made at least 1.5 million of the Model 95 folding viewfinder camera for his instant roll film, including the variants 95A and 95B. The 95 ended production in 1953 and was followed with the 95A from 1954 to 1957 and the 95B from 1957 to 1961. The first of these is recognizable having a spring sighting pin as part of the viewfinder, while the later ones have a wire frame. The model name is written on the face plate of the camera.
Polaroid came out with some wonderful cameras over the years, but compared to conventional cameras, all of them were fairly large and more expensive to operate. Polaroid was seriously hurt by the rise in one-hour labs in drugstores, supermarkets, shopping malls, and even Drive Through, and then finally done in for good by digital. One custom started by Polaroid is still with us, however: When you take a digital picture, people crowd around to see the picture right away, just as they surely did in 1948.
