Now with the demise of Polaroid, I have been looking at the possibility of getting 4x5 B&W instant film. Not a single choice here in the Netherlands, so after some tips of APUG'ers, I now have finally acquired a second hand Fuji PA-45 instant pack film holder and a pack of Fuji FP-500B45 straight from Japan send via airmail, which covers almost the full 4x5 image size... Eager to try it out, I just managed to get a first shot before sunset that I would like to share here for others considering switching. The picture is attached below. Notice it has a very nice smooth tonality and no streaks of poor development, something I almost never managed with my single sheet Polaroid type 52 and Polaroid 545i holder. The Fuji PA-45 holder is easy to use, after you understand how to use it. See this thread I also posted today and the last link to the YouTube films for some examples: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum37/50040-manual-fuji-pa-45-instant-film-holder.html My second hand holder came without manual, so at first I was a bit at loss. With these films, and a Polaroid document about instant pack film, and after simply opening the film pack, it all became clear. Open the holder, just stack the film in in the correct orientation, close the holder, and pull out the protective black paper dark slide and you're ready to shoot. Also, probably less waste, since far less single sheet waste and an overall smaller packaging compared to Polaroid. Best of all, it's only 1/2 the price of Polaroid, even including sending from the other side of the globe! Now we are just left with one problem: *** How are we going to call these instant shots???? *** We all have been used saying "Oh, just shoot a Polaroid!" to say we're going to make an instant shot. The brand name Polaroid became synonimous with the photo itself. So from now on we need to say "Shoot a Fuji"??? It sounds crap... but what choice have we left???????
