    Polaroid back on a 9x12 folder

    This may be a crazy idea or does anyone know if it is at all possible, that there is a polaroid back that fits a 9x12 folder? Of course, I suspect the only way to find out is to try, thought that maybe someone had tried...? I thought shooting Fuji instant film could be fun........

    There are 3x4 springbacks knocking around that fit 9x12 folders. I'm not sure how much modification is needed to make a springback for standard two-sided holders fit Polaroid, but it seems like a natural place to start.

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    I don't think there were any major manufacturers. I picked up spring backs in 2x3 and 3x4 by buying cameras from eBay that had them attached, and in both cases it looks like good amateur work---someone might have had their repairman take a commercially available spring back and put on a flange to fit the camera, for instance.
