    I have a couple of 545i backs, a 405 and a 455. Asking $40 for each or $120 for the lot. Please add $10 for shipping in either case. I have 100% positive feedback on fredmiranda, Astromart, Audiogon and eBay.

    Your 405 back is worth close to $200... maybe more. The others are icing on the cake.

    It's not that much... The pa145 new in box from japan maybe, but usually it and the 405 used can be anywhere from $60 to $150. That said the back is awesome to have. If the first sale doesn't go through id love to have an extra!

    Yeah, I'd love a 545i if the first sale doesn't happen, for my travelwide (my regular 545 won't fit, apparently)

    Ha ha, it looks like I mispriced these slightly :smile: However, I will still honor my asking price - I have a buyer interested for the lot and will get back to others if that does not go through.

    Rare selling integrity... maybe the buyer will offer you a bit more?

    Is the 405 an equivalent of the PA 45?

    Polaroid 405 = Fuji PA-145 (e.g., FP-100C)
    Polaroid 550 = Fuji PA-45 (e.g., FP-100C45)

    I see. So if I grab either one, I can use peel apart packs on my 4x5. Nice!

    Unfortunately FP-100C45 film is no longer made.

    All that is current is the FP-100C. Which is also what fits in the Polaroid pack film folding cameras.

    The B&W is still being sold, but now that it is out of production, prices are climbing.

    I am seeing quite a bit on ebay.
    Wondering if it's only sold in Japan now?

    You might want a Polaroid 545 too, then pray to the photo gods that New55 comes to existence in January.

    All the backs have been sold. Thanks for the kind words Old-N-Feeble. I will chalk this up to the learning curve for LF gear :smile:
