    There is a Golden unit on eBay right now with a film holder included. Bids are at $1200 with over a day to go!

    I looked for the units on their website and their website is 2012, with no 8x10 listed...

    Re: 8x10 polaroid processor how much?

    I have nothing against Golden or any eBay seller cashing in on the rush for 8x10 Polaroid processors, but this is getting ridiculous. A manual 8x10 instant processor is a set of rollers with a crank. It's an oversized pasta maker. For $1000? That could buy 10 Travelwides, or better yet, a plane ticket overseas!

    If anyone needs a processor, look for a "slip roll." It's used in metalworking to bend sheet metal. You can get them for about $200 brand new. It looks like this:


    (Eastwood 12" Slip Roll)


    If you have any doubt that they can run 8x10 instant film, check out this video from Bob Crowley and the 20x24 crew. They're using that Eastwood to run the film:



    They're doing a lot of other crazy stuff in that video too, but you get the idea.

    My Eureka was meant as a joke. I think I need to be more forthwith my humor.

    I saw that video some time ago.

    I think we could do it with a rolling pin...

    Oh, I know you weren't serious about the Golden/Calumet—I just needed to post so that anyone stumbling on the thread would have a lead on a processing solution, and wouldn't consider paying $1000 for two metal cylinders that rotate!

    There IS a little more to it....and the Polaroid units actually WERE about $1000 new when last available.

    Re: 8x10 polaroid processor how much?

    I agree and people complain, worry about the cost of a good Polaroid 405 back..

    But, in the end anyone shooting Fujiroid, IP and especially 8X10 IP will spend much more on film than even the highest price Fujiroid Processor.

    I love my 405 with FujiFilm FP 3000, best thing ever for Mamiya RB, Horseman 2x3 and any 4x5.

    I hope everybody has 3 of the currently worthless Polaroid 545i when new 4X5 Roid becomes available, as it will.

    The problem is the film holders are even scarcer than the processors. Not sure if there are any DIY solutions for that.

    And they rely on a wide strip of felt...
