    Can't you shoot readyloads or quickloads with a 545? That should keep the value up.

    IDK, I've never shot them. I thought you needed a "ready load holder"

    Ah, just read on Robertwhite, they tested and it works with RLs and QLs, but the 545 has no pressure plate so apparently it isn't quite optimal. Doable but not optimal. Apparently the clipping mechanism does work.

    If you need a used PA-45 with your Fuji instant film from Japan, get in touch. They are plenty and inexpensive.

    35mm and MF Polaroid -> Fuji replacements?

    Just to clarify for myself. The Fuji website does not mention compatabilty from what I have seen. The posts here on APUG seem to indicate that there should be compatability from the Polaroid 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 to the Fuji 3.5 x 4.25 format FP-100B. The image size is different, but are the dimensions of the pack the same?

    Just need to confirm that I don't need to buy up discontinued 664 and that I can just use the Fujifilm FP-100b. Is this correct?

    Yes, I've used both the Polaroid 6xx films and Fuji FP-100C (medium format packfilm) in my Bronica Polaroid back and the NPC back I used to have for my Canon New F-1.

    I apologize for resurrecting an old thread.
    Since the Fuji FP-100c is much cheaper than the FP-100c45 and just slightly smaller, can it be used on a 4x5 camera for proofing? If yes, would it need the Fuji PA-45 holder or some other one?
    If anyone has ever tried, I'd love to see some results and hear your opinions.
    Thanks.

    RLs and QLs work great in my Polaroid 545i holder...not an issue at all.
