Hi Dave,

The Polaroid Model 95, first sold in 1948, was the company's first instant-print camera. In 1954, Polaroid introduced its Highlander model, the Model 80, which made slightly smaller photos than the Model 95 series.

Model 80A was made from 1957 through 1959. It was used with Polaroid's type 32 or 37 film, neither of which is made today. This camera is usually for collection ONLY. However, I recently found out that you may use the 120 film on this camera!

how do you use 120 film with this camera? my grandma let me use her land 80 and i was going to try to use it for some medium format stuff at school. also, is it possible to use sheet film in it?

I have Model 80. Would be interested in knowing if 120 film can be used in it... and how? Would anyone who has a manual, be willing to scan and share with me?

I have just purchased a Polaroid Highlander Land camera model 80 a. In its carrying case, which is in excellent condition i have all of the accessories. Each of these accessories is in its own leather case and all of the instruction booklets are in excellent condition. It seems as though this camera was never used. Anywho i was wondering if you found out any information on this camera. I just thought it was cute so i purchased it for five dollars. thank you for your time...Mal
