Polaroid ProCam is the variant of the Polaroid Spectra camera. Polaroid introduced the Spectra system of cameras in the early 1980s. It was an all-new line of cameras and had a corresponding new film. Spectra film image format is a rectangular 9.2 x 7.3cm rather than 600 film’s square format. Most of the models utilize an arc-shaped range of focusing lenses inside the body that swing across the exterior lens element to provide correct focusing rather than adjusting the distance between internal lens elements. It takes higher-quality pictures, due to the camera’s higher build quality and a proportionally larger print area.
Polaroid ProCam ( Year: 1996) has a sideways folding mechanism and folding viewfinder mechanism. Lens: 90mm lens – shorter than any other Spectra model made – giving a wider field of view roughly equivalent to 33mm in 35mm film format. Time/date stamp capability, autofocus, lighten/darken control, and was sold with a close-up lens attachment. It features a durable strap for comfortable one-handed operation. Other features include a sonar autofocus system and a built-in electronic flash, both of which can be overridden or cancelled as needed, and a tripod socket.
