Item details

Here's an unused Polaroid Model 235 35mm Slide Copier, that we salvaged from an old camera shop, still in its original shipping box with display card, a bundle of flyers and instruction manual. It must be pretty rare, since we can't find out much of anything about it. The nameplate shows it was manufactured by Edgerton, Germeshausen & Grier, in Boston, probably in the early 1960's, by the look of the graphics. The lens is a Wollensak Anastigmat 50mm f/4.5.

It was intended to be used in a camera shop for customers to come in and get Polaroid prints from their 35mm slides. It probably would not have been a machine you bought and took home.

It's in great condition, probably never used (the cord is still coiled from the factory), though the original box is quite bashed up from being in stock for something like 40 years. The preview light works fine, but it doesn't flash when the shutter is tripped, but maybe we just don't know how to use it!

Beautiful and unusual item for the serious Polaroid collector!
Sold as is, in condition as described, with no guarantee of working condition.

The unit itself is about 18" long, 9.5" wide and 6" tall. It will weigh about 15 lbs, safely packed for shipping. Item #1312004
