    A local photographer is selling some items and has this listed...

    1 - RB67 Poloraid filmback HP701 - $15

    (1) Will that work on a Pro S?
    (2) Would I need a 'P' adapter and just what is a HP 701?
    (3) Is it worth $15?

    I have never heard of a HP 701 and I have heard some backs don't need a P adapter. (I may have heard wrong.)

    Thanks. Ric.

    The HP701 is simply the model No. for the most recent instant film back for the RB67 series. It replaced the Polaroid Land Pack backs type 2 & 3 which required the P adapter to attach them to the body.

    The HP701 attaches directly to the camera body - NOT to the revolving adapter plate which has to be removed. So it should work on a Pro S....
