Polaroid Polavision Land Player Manual

Here's something you don't see every day. Although I seriously doubt anyone has a need for it, here's the manual for the Polaroid Polavision Land Player. It's a great looking manual, with really well done color marker illustrations.

The Polavision Player was required to play back the weird Polavision Phototapes. At one time I had an entire Polavision system - a gift from my uncle, who knew I was into old Polaroid stuff. But I was never able to come across any blank Phototapes. The whole system was an expensive, short-lived forerunner of home video cameras, and never really caught on.

If you're interested, you can read more about the ill-fated Polavision system at The Land List.

  3. These might be improved by any current estate charge arrangement. European nations, Australia, and Japan partakes in these deals, The U.S. doesn't keep up with as numerous estate charge deals as personal assessment settlements. Tree Cutting Moreno Valley
