Polaroid 100 - Can I Use Different Lenses?

Polaroid Land Model 100

Today I received an e-mail from a Film Photography Podcast listener who had two questions about his Polaroid 100 Automatic Land Camera.

"Love your podcasts. I had my Polaroid 1oo Land Camera reconditioned recently and have been shooting over the last couple of days. I'm new to it and been having both good and bad results. I was hoping you may be able to answer a few questions for me?

My first question - is it possible to have the lens changed on the 100? I'm finding that it's really not possible to do any close up work.

My other question is what setting do you recommend when shooting with manual off-camera flash? I have a Nikon SB-28 flash and have been going through a lot of trial and error trying to get the flash exposures correct. I'm setting the aperture on the flash for f/8 and the focal length for 85mm, and then setting the ASA accordingly. I've been trying both direct and bounced flash. I don't mind the trial and error stuff, but it's seems so wasteful and a little costly to keep going through all of this film.

Any info would be much appreciated."

Thanks, Scott
