I'm an unashamed shallow DOF junkie, and I like the DOF it can give, and my, what a big lens for a polaroid! What camera is this? Found this image on the net

Hey- that looks like a Polaroid model 190 camera (it is also the name of the jpeg you uploaded, so I am fairly certain this is a 190).

It's a great camera and fun to use, too- but rather rare and often expensive (for polaroid cameras, anyway).

It may be the Polaroid 180 as that viewfinder looks like a Zeiss Ikon. The 190 comes with a standard vf

The 180, 185. 190, and the 195 were considered "pro". And as already said they fetch high prices. I like the 100 model, it has mainly metal body, some lens control, and can be mounted on a tripod. The Zeiss view finder can also be found on the 300's through 450's. They also are expensive, the 100 is very similar but does not have the zeiss viewfinder, which Ive never used but my 100's viewfinder works well for me.

It is a mirror self portrait shot by a Land 195 with Zeiss RF.
