One of Polaroid's second generation of folding 100-series packfilm cameras. The Reporter can use either standard rectangular format OR square format pack films.
This series features no rangefinder mechanism. As an improvement over the original folding series however, there is no need to cock the shutter after each exposure, and the folding mechanism is greatly simplified.
Lens: 114mm, f/9.2 3-element plastic.
Shutter speed range is about 10 seconds - 1/500 sec
Film speed settings for 80 and 3000 ASA films
Rigid, non-parallax corrected viewfinder - no rangefinder
Viewfinder does have projected framelines, however, Front-cell focusing, with distance scale on lens ring
Automatic exposure system similar to the "original style" pack cameras
"Everset" electronic shutter - does not need re-cocking before next exposure.
