Nikon Preview Polaroid Camera
This SLR camera is basically a Polaroid back with a Nikon SLR lens mount. This camera is designed for scene checking in professional assignments. The idea behind this camera is that the photographer will select the lens and attach it to the Preview for a look at the finished picture before the actual shoot begins. Lighting may be checked, a stray electrical cord or some other easily overlooked flaw can be easily seen and corrected prior to the shoot. A Polaroid back by other manufacturers require the dedication of a camera body to the back. If you remove the back from this camera you'll lose a sheet of film every time.
Plus, you must add the price of the dedicated camera body to the Polaroid camera back price. the combination of these two items totals more than the price of the Nikon Preview alone. The Preview is an SLR camera with an adjustable shutter speed . Most importantly, the X sync shutter speed is 1/250 second and the Preview has a PC connector included. A complete mirror box is incorporated and a supplied right angle viewfinder makes the image correct left to right.
