It was hard to see such a beautiful camera sitting on a shelf collecting dust. I've decided to give it a chance for getting a new life.
I have seen many Polaroid conversions before, but doing it that way was not good enough for my project, because all of them were, actually, just Polaroids, shortened with a hacksaw .
My goal was to save as much of that beatiful original look of it as possible. Therefore, I integrated the packfilm holder into the rear swinging door of the camera, leaving the original door lock functional, allowing the film door to open in one swing, just the way it was designed. Of course, it made my job harder, but I managed to fit a Polaroid packfilm holder into the camera without ruining it's authentic look.
