    question about Kodak readyload film

    I was wondering if I can use Koday 4x5 T-Max readyload film in either a fuji quickload holder or in Polarioid 545 holder.

    I've heard that Kodak and Fuji holders and film are now interchangable, which leads me to believe that they've changed either the holders or the film to now be interchangable.

    And I've heard confllicting reports about using readyload film with Polaroid holder: that it works or that it works about 2/3 of the time, so you waste a lot of film and shots.

    Any advice would be helpful.

    Best, David.

    Kodak Readyloads work fine in a Polaroid 545 film holder.

    On the Robert White website the compatibilities are listed.

    Kodak can be used in the Fuji holder but sometimes failures occur.

    I use Fuji film in my Kodak holder without any problems.

    I believe this is the generally accepted compatibility list.
    I use 545i, and it does handle QL and Pola no problem. But I've experienced a very high failure rate with ReadyLoads (light leaks and no exposure). I felt it's more of a problem with the film as the clip simply fell off the packet a couple of times when I tried to use them.

    The 100 Tmax Readyload 4 x 5 film packet jammed tight in my New Fuji Quickload film holder. I would not even slide out to allow me to take a photo. One I opened a Acros 100 Quickload and a 100Tmax packets, is saw that they are very different inside.
