    Re: LF Clarification

    Since we're talking about 4x5 and not being 4x5 -whats the mods take on the Fuji fp100c45? (I reckon it's LF, but if better-lights back isnt LF...?)

    FP100C45 is nominally 4x5. It says so right on the box. But FP100C is nominally quarter plate and would need to be in the other subforum.

    So now the only generally available instant film for shooting on 4x5 cameras is no longer LF?

    Sorry guys, but you got this ruling all wrong. You guys should consider changing the "4-inch" rule to the longest dimension. That makes way more sense when you consider the breadth of images that are now no longer being considered LF. This would then include 6x12, 6x17, 3x4 film/instant, etc.

    For the record, the previous definitions were crystal clear and made sense to me, so I'm puzzled by the fact that the confusion of a "number of members" led to a significant rule change for all.

    It's too bad there wasn't a poll taken to determine what percentage of the forum membership was unclear on the prior definitions. If it were a majority I'd eat my bellows.

    As I see it the forum is not, nor has ever been a democracy. If there is a flaw in defining large format it is trying to DEFINE it in rigorous metrics. My background in law and rhetoric suggests that specificity is the path to failure.

    To fathom the issue of being nonspecific but still addressing the very heart of the matter refer to Marianne Constable's legal scholarship.

    Yea. It does but I thought better-light was 4x5 too.
    Yes. Not about the original fp100c -thats quite smaller.

    Fp100c is smaller to fp100c45 -which is for the Pa45 backs.
    (Or are you saying fp100c is LF? I use it w my MF - mamiya RB)

    Many people here shoot the full 3x4 sheet of FP100C or 3200B in our 405 holders on 4x5 cameras.

    The 4x5 size is of course discontinued!

    Aha! I thought only the 45 version worked in 4x5 Polaroid holders.
    Thanks for letting me know!
