One of Polaroid's second generation of folding, 100-series packfilm cameras, the EE100 Special is a variant of the EE100, similar to other models The Reporter and the Pro-Pack. The EE100 Special can use both 100-series and 80-series packfilms, and the fixed non-focusing viewfinder has guides to show the film sizes for each. The only feature it has which the standard EE100 does not is a setting to use ISO3000 film at full aperture.
Focusing is carried out by turning the distance-marked front lens element; unlike the original Polaroid 100-400 series folding packfilm cameras, this series features no rangefinder mechanism. As an improvement over the original folding series however, there is no need to cock the shutter after each exposure, and the folding mechanism is greatly simplified. The EE100 also takes generic 'blue dot' flashcubes, with a wind-up hot shoe and diffuser set to one side of the lens.
