The Polaroid Colorpack II was a rigid plastic bodied instant camera that was made between 1969-1972. It was a big seller thanks to its low price (under $30 at time of introduction) and colour film capabilities. Early production models featured a coated glass lens that was slightly smaller in diameter than the plastic version.
