    Finally found a killer deal on this after looking for about 100 years.

    Now, If I was to use the Fuji FP-3000B film in the back, Can I remove the pack half way thru and insert for example my pack of FP-100B?

    Also, I understand they make a 120 film roll back for this that can be switched to 6x6, 6x7 and 6x9. Is that really correct. If so, that's pretty nifty.

    Thanks for any help.

    You can't remove the pack from the actual polaroid holder without losing a frame or two depending on what light you took the pack out in. The holder's themselves are really easy to source, I think that the name of the holder is a Polaroid 73. The 120 back that can be switched between 6x6 the other formats is actually kind of hard to find, the 6x7 and 6x9 backs are easier to find and more affordable as well.

    Removal of film mid-pack will result in the loss of one picture. These cameras do not have a darkslide.

    Thanks guys. I'll get seperate backs as the film being about $1 a frame is much to wasteful
    Best

    P.S. Just double checking.... with two backs, I can remove the back between shots and put a new back on correct? Thanks again.

    Yes they have darkslides. If you have a dark closet you can change packs and store one in a lightproof bag or something, but this is very inconvenient. Does anybody know the model number of the medium format back for the 600SE?

    Hey Tom:

    Yes... you can change backs and swap them as often as you want. They all have dark slides so NP.

    Also they made a 3 way back with masks for the Mamiya Universal, You need a "M" adapter for the Polaroid 600 SE for that back to work. The mounting CLAWS are different on the Mamiya and the Polaroid even tho it was ALL made by Mamyia.

    If you have any other question PE me and I will fill you in, I use this system almost EVERYDAY... The Fuji FP-3000b ROCKS !!!

    Thanks

    Scott
