Are you looking to use the 4x5 Fuji Instant? If so, the 550 will work as well Fuji's own PA-45. If you're wanting to use standard size Instant film, you'll need the 405.

The 405 takes pack film.
I use one with Fuji instant pack film myself.

From the Arca-Swiss catalogue:

623000 Polaroid back 405, special
version for all ARCA -SWISS 4x5
cameras. Pack film 8.3 x 10.8cm

Yes I am planning to use the Fjui 4x5 instant, and thanks, prefer to buy Fuji own PA-45, however they are like gold dust, and looking on ebay too.

Hi Jan

I was hoping to use third pary holder - the Arca 405 is a special and is slightly different to norla 405 polaroid stock.

Thanks
