    Hey everybody. Was wondering if someone could tell me if a 550 polaroid back will fit in a pinhole camera that uses a standard 4x5 sheet film holder. Is it the right fit, or would it require some modifying to fit the camera? :confused:

    Thanks!

    The issue is the thickness of the 550. If it fits under the spring back (assuming you have a spring back) it will work. The distance from the front rails of the holder to the film plane and the width are the same as a regular 4x5 holder.
