    Hi all,
    I've just bought an A-Power polaroid back for my holga but I can't seen to find B&W film for it. The manual states I need Type 82, 84, 87, 88 or 89 - any ideas where I could source this from?
    Thanks Andy::confused:

    Unfortunately the 80 series films have been discontinued, so you're best off just looking around for anyone who's still got some in stock. AFAIK there is generally still some available on fleabay.

    (From Polaroid: "Please be advised that Polaroid will be discontinuing 8[x] film within the last 3 months of 2006 due to the phasing out of components used in the production of this film.")

    go to their site (polariod) and see what they have available.
