    Hi Folks.
    I love my RB67 like no other, so when i was able to pick up a compatible NPC back on the ultra-cheap i was quite excited.
    However, i have never shot Polaroid before, and am struggling with how to load the back with the film. As well as the actions to take before and after the shot. If anybody could lend any help and/or instruction i would be grateful. Thanks.

    Make sure it's clean before you start. The rollers maybe messy.

    Rollers clean easily with alcohol and q tips. Some of them come out for cleaning, not sure about the RB. I now use digital for proofs. I just got an RB last week and like it so much that I just ordered another body with a 120 back and different lens. I think it will become my main small film camera. I usually shoot LF.
