Hi All,

Newbie here. I just bought a Fuji PA-45. I also bought some Fuji FP-100C45 color instant film. I just went to the Fuji website, they list a FP-100B45 film that is available, but all I can find online is the FP-100B in the smaller pack, which doesn't fit into the PA-45. Since I plan to shoot mostly in B&W, I was hoping to use a B&W instant film. I know that I can buy a Fuji PA-145 used, if I can find one, and use the smaller FP-100B packs, but I was hoping not to have to buy another holder.

Appreciative of this site and everyone's knowledge and experience,

David

All indications are that the B&W film has been discontinued in 4x5.

I did the same research a few weeks ago.

Thanks, Leigh.

Other than checking eBay & KEH, do you or anybody know of a source for the Fuji-PA-145 holder, so I can use the smaller format instant film?

I bought my PA-45 from B&H at http://www.bhphotovideo.com/

I believe Adorama also stocks the holders http://www.adorama.com/

Thanks, Leigh.

Actually, I have the PA-45. I'm looking for a PA-145. That way I can use the smaller (3.25" x 4.25) FP-100B. Do you or anybody know where I can buy one of those, other than KEH or eBay?

Hi David,

B&H had them when I bought my PA-45, because I ran into the smaller one while looking for the larger. Apparently they no longer carry it. My bad.

David,

The Fuji FP-100B, as well as the FP-3000B & the FP-100C, will all fit in the Polaroid 405. You can pick one up pretty inexpensively on eBay. Just make sure it comes with the acetate framing template so that you can compose for the smaller-sized film on your 4x5 groundglass.

If the acetate is missing, you can always download one from this forum or elsewhere on the internet.

They're kind of hard to find. Japan Exposures has some:

I also see there's a Polaroid 405 on ebay now.
