    New to large format - simple question

    I have a Tachihara 4x5 field camera, a Busch Pressman camera 4x5, and a Speed Graphic. Will the Polariod 550 or Fuji pa-45 work with my cameras?

    Yes. The holder will fit under the ground glass, just like a normal holder.

    Well, yes and no. If I haven't got my Polaroid backs confused the 550 is the pack holder...? If so, then it will NOT fit is a Busch Pressman 4x5 (and too bad since it is such a nice camera otherwise). It just misses.

    It will fit in a Speed Graphic and the Tach 4x5.

    Again, assuming this is the pack film back.

    If it's a pacemaker speed graphic or newer, it will fit. If it's a pre-anniversary or anniversary, the instant pack will not fit. The backs on the older cameras did not pull out far enough for the pa-45 holder.
