hi all!
i´m looking into a confirmation that you can use the 545i with Fujifilm FP 4x5 instant films...at the bottom here it states that you can http://en.polaroid-passion.com/polaroid ... -films.php
but i found different opinions when i was googling for it...
Any reply really appreciated.
Thanks!

no way. it doesn't fit. there is a difference between plan-film (sheet film) and pack film. fuji is pack film that fits into the 550 holder. sheet film is no longer made and the old stock is far too expensive. but there is hope: there is a project for 55 sheet film at http://new55project.blogspot.fr/

Thanks for the clarification xya!
So pack film it is... and i guess it starts the developing right away. when you pull it out then...

All of this because i just purchased a 4x5 Graflex and i´m looking into the best option to shoot some instant pictures with it.
The Fuji Packs are easier (and cheaper) to get and i´ve also got to know that the 3000B45 generates a quite good negative besides the positive print.

Suggestions welcome!
thanks again

I haven't tried the 3000, but the fp-100c45 does work out fine indeed. have a look here: http://new55project.blogspot.fr/2010/04 ... _6525.html

and here: http://moominsean.blogspot.fr/2011/12/f ... d-4x5.html without the fuzz about taping, works fine as well.
