    Recommendations for affordable Instant Film and Holder (4x5 Camera)

    I want to shoot some instant Film for my 4x5 Camera. Is there an cheap way to break into this? The Holders for Fuji Pack Film run for about $200! Also, the size of the film doesn't matter and I can always buy expired film.

    Any Suggestions?

    As far as I know, Polaroid and Fuji have stopped making any instant film. So your only choice is finding some expired stuff.

    But, I have read that some enterprising folks are trying to get their own line of instant film up and going but don't know much more than that.

    There is no 4x5 instant film left in production unless you want to pay a small fortune for expired Fuji 4x5 pack film or a great fortune for really expired Polaroid film that is probably worthless.

    Your only reliable option is to get a Polaroid 405/Fuji PA-145 back which shoots 3.25 x 4.25 in images and can be somewhat expensive. The color FP-100C film is still made (at least for now), has amazing color and is cheap to boot.

    Also pick yourself up a 545 Polaroid back, they are cheap/free right now and if the New 55 Project comes to fruition there will be 4x5 film available.
