    I'm feeling kind of dumb here. I can't figure out which color instant film is available for 4x5 cameras. I thought there was one that would work in old Polaroid holders.

    None anymore. Fuji recently discontinued 4x5 instant film. There is a back that allows you to use standard 3x4 instant film though.

    By the way, you could try a little harder to get your posts in the right category from now on. There are color forums and Instant forums.

    If you're talking about the old Polaroid sheet film holders (500 and 545), nothing has been made for them since Polaroid folded. Polaroid also made the 550 back, which used 4x5 pack film. Fuji made film for this holder up until recently, and you can still find the FP-100C45 film relatively easily. Finally, there is also a 405 back, which uses regular size FP-100C. This is pretty much your only option nowadays, as FP-100C is still being made.

    Bummers. 3x4 is just too small. Time to rethink again.

    As impossible introduced 20x24 as color instant film (not peal apart) - I would not be surprised if they do the same for 8x10 in future.

    Me taking a stool softener won't help you sadly. Otherwise I'd eat a whole bottle.
