Part of the series of Polaroid cameras started with the Automatic 100 and finishing at the Automatic 450, this camera shares a common set of features with all models in this line:

  • Folding Bellows
  • Automatic Exposure
  • 100-series Packfilm

The 355 is one of the higher end models of the 100-400 series line of folding Packfilm Land Cameras, similar to the 100, 250, 350 and 450 models; the main difference being the inclusion of a development timer on the rear of the body, and a smaller eyepiece on the rangefinder - both models of eyepiece are functionally identical; the earlier model just has a larger window at the rear. The shutter speed is automatically chosen from a range of from 12-1/1200s.

The main advantages these models have over the majority of the other, 'consumer' models in the series are:

  • Tripod mount on all-metal body
  • Metal strap lugs
  • 3 element glass lens (114mm f8.8)

This model appears to be identical to the 350 but has Polaroid rangefinder rather than the Zeiss one on the 350.
