View Full Version : Fuji PA-145

Good day,

..I was wondering, are there people here who are using Fuji PA-145 instant back for 5x4? And maybe someone knows where would it be possible to acquire one? (preferably in the UK)

Thank you!

Have a wonderful day people!

The PA-145 uses the smaller size pack film, 3.25 x 4.25; as such, it is usually available for a very reasonable price ($60-$90) on eBay.
Prices are likely a little higher in the UK.
Have you tried eBay UK, or any UK-based LF forums?
Good luck!

Thank you for the reply!

Yes, I've tried ebay and other forums I could, but it's not an easy job to find one. It's like they don't exist.. weird..

Polaroid 405, uses same film. Google it

The Polaroid 405 backs are often much more abundant then the Fuji PA-145 backs.
Same story with the larger Polaroid 550 vs the Fuji PA-45. Patience is key.
The backs you're looking for will come up for auction, sometimes a flood of them.
You just may be experiencing a lull right now.
Looks like the recent completed prices are in the 65-80 GBP range; a tad higher then I expected, but not exorbitant.

Advanced search of completed *Bay-UK listings for Polaroid 405 backs for 5 X 4 cameras.

My local camera shop has 2 in good shape for about $25 USD.

There is about 3 others in good shape along with a PA-45. All under $25.
