Normally your camera can focus only as close as 3 1/2 feet. With this “Goggles” and “Lens” kit your camera can focus on subjects as close as 9 inches. The Close-Up kit is great for head and torso shots with your folding pack film camera. This kit will allow you to be 9″ away from your subject, and up to 15″ at its maximum focus distance. The normal closest distance without this kit is 42″.
Why did Polaroid create so many different models?
There are several different model numbers for Close-Up Kits, but they mainly only differ in the type of ‘goggles’ included (Polaroid RF or Zeiss RF) and which flash diffuser(s) is included. You may find a given Close-Up kit is perfectly usable with your camera even though it isn’t specifically listed as one of the models intended for it. To make things even more confusing, the later versions of these Kits were sold as ‘combined’ models (with, say, all of the possible flash diffusers) and labeled with all of the different accessory numbers which they replaced.
Incidently, none of the Kits will work with low-end models having a two-element lens. Also, none of the Kits are intended for use with the cheaper triplet-lensed models that have a non-folding RF/viewfinder (i.e. the 330) as the ‘goggles’ won’t fit. Still confused?
