Depends on what Polaroid-Back you saw. Peel-apart Film like Fp100c is almost dead. For some holders you can get New55 Film, which is quite expensive.

new55 is very expensive (20 each). why you said fp100c are almost dead? there're several listings on ebay/amazon
I saw Polaroid 545i

can the fp100 fit on 545i?

The 545i back is only for 4x5 film, and the only 4x5 film currently made is the very expensive New55. Fuji fp100c is a smaller size, needs its own holder (I think Polaroid 405 but I'm not sure). And I have seen conflicting reports whether Fuji has phased out fp100c, what you are seeing on Amazon, etc. may be either unsold inventory or "new old stock," but I repeat, I don't know the definitive answer.

FP-100C requires either a Polaroid 405, or Fuji PA-145 holder.

I'm aware of a few different methods for using *Instax* film with the Polaroid 545, or even just a standard film holder:

If you shoot New55 P/N, and you're careful, you should even be able to reload the sleeves with Instax, similar to the first link above.

Fuji Fp100c has been discontinued last year. Statement from Fuji: " “As you may have heard, Fujifilm has finalized its production of FP-100C Color Instant Film. While this was a difficult decision, it was necessary in order to remain sustainable in today’s market. Going forward, the supply of FP-100C will be available until the inventory is exhausted.”"
