Hello All --

(I originally improperly posted a longer thread involving film in the gear thread, but this final question is still relevant to the gear topic).

I have the polaroid 545 holder. There have been mixed comments about whether or not Fuji instant film can be used in this holder. Any thoughts? Should I just buy the Fuji holder so that I could use their quickload film at some point in the future?

I sincerely appreciate all responses.

Hi Derek:
I use a polaroid 545i holder and use it with polaroid type 55 and Fuji Acros quickloads. No problems.

The question was about Fuji Instant film, not quickloads.

I'm interested in an answer too, now that Polaroid seems to be gone...

Fuji 4x5 packfilm needs Pola 550 or Fuji PA-45 holders. There are equivalents for the smaller size packfilms.

Pola 545 accepts sheet based films, like 55 or quickloads.

Fuji instant pack films cannot be used in a 545 sheet film holder.

Fuji Quickload films (which are not instant) can be used in a 545 sheet film holder, but some people have concerns about film flatness with this combination.
