    Turning FP-100C45 into sheet film?

    Okay so long story short I have a Polaroid 545i and a pack of FP-100C45. Could I crack apart the pack holding the film and use the sheets individually in the 545i? (If not I really don't know what to do with this film..)

    Edit: I have no clue how the pack actually holds the film, chances are it's not that simple..

    Ah I knew it. Still, I wonder how this stuff works. Off to Craigslist it goes. (I really don't feel like shelling out three digits for a plastic pack holder)

    Here is a diagram of the way pack film works.

    Best,

    Came from a different line as I just got a PA-45 but suddenly find that I cannot find any film in Hong Kong. Trying to get some on ebay now.

    But this thread make me think --- how about the last negative? If one does not pull it and just open this in a dark bag and get it ... perhaps tray process or try to fit in one of the Jobo drum I have.

    May be I can experiment it a bit with the PA-145 type film I have first.

    Any experience or idea?
