The 800 Land camera, folding type, was manufactured by Polaroid, U.S.A., in 1957-1962.
The camera folds into the hard body once the bellows are collapsed.
Most Land cameras allow for the film to be developed inside the camera. The film was placed on two reels or spools; one housing the negative roll, the other the positive paper and developing containers.
Like Polaroid's Pathfinder Land cameras, 'The 800' used Polaroid's picture roll Land film that ceased being used by 1992, however some models have been successfully converted to use modern films.
The Polaroid Corporation was established in Massachusetts, U.S.A. in 1937. The company is best known for its instant polaroid cameras that were first sold in the late 1940s.
