The Polaroid 405 and 550 pack film holders.  The 405 is a tight fit under a Graflok style spring back, whereas the 550 requires glass removal and side locks engaged on my cameras.

So, according to the Cambo manual, my camera is a Frankenstein’s monster.  It started life as a Model 44 and some time later acquired the focusing bellows system from a Model 45 and lost its passport lenses and viewfinder. Unfortunately, the rangefinder from the 45 didn’t come with it.  I also found out that my camera was once property of the Columbia Camera Club.  Perhaps they were this camera’s surgeon.

I felt awkward tilting my Cambo portrait camera 90 degrees to take a landscape shot.  But, lo and behold, right smack-dab in the Cambo manual I downloaded…BOOM!  They did the same thing.  😊
