    Fuji FP? Is it a fools errand?

    Im thinking about getting a polaroid 405 or fuji 145, is the FP film discontinued? I can't seem to get a bead on this.... I don't really want to drop some money on a dead end holder that will just break my heart.....

    Thanks in advance, and sorry if this is the wrong forum category for this.....

    Why do you think it's discontinued?
    It's available everywhere for less than $10/pack.

    That is full 4x5 instant film.

    The 3.25 x 4.25 is still available everyday, and specifically that is the kind you need for the Polaroid 405 or Fuji 145 holders.

    I can see where the OP is coming from. That article referenced came out in Feb. of 2014 The article mentions the smaller stuff as well as the 4x5.

    If I could find my Graflok PoloPack back, I might get a few packs and I have a Hassy PoloPack back but I don't think I'd count on Fuji providing instant tim into the future to the point of investing in a new back.

    What's a decent pace on a 405/145 back?

    If more people buy the film, there's less chance of it being discontinued! I still buy it and use in in both 4x5 and my RB67 cameras. Everyone loves an instant photo out of the RB...

    Hmmmm... My experience has been that, if you can't look at it on a smartphone, most people flat out aren't interested in it.
