Part of the series of Polaroid cameras that began with the Automatic Land Camera 100 and finishing at the Automatic Land Camera 450, this camera shares a common set of features with all models in this line:

  • Folding Bellows
  • Automatic Exposure
  • 100-series Packfilm

The 220 is one of the lower end models of the 100-400 series line of folding Packfilm Land Cameras, similar to many other models; this model features a non-folding, Polaroid-designed rangefinder and a 2 element plastic lens. Of note is that the 220 was the only lower end model (with duplet lens and non-folding finder) to feature switchable apertures, facilitating the use of the 3000 speed black-and-white film for pictures indoors without flash. When the 300-series replaced it, the second lowest camera in the line, the 330, would feature the triplet lens and no choice of aperture for a given film speed.

The 220 was produced from 1968 until 1970, retailing on release for $85.
