    instax 210 film in a 4x5?

    Is it possible to do this? My Girlfriend is thinking about getting an Instax 210, so I was thinking about snagging a pack and running it in my 4x5 for the hell of it.

    How do you intend to process the film ? I believe you need rollers (don't want to take apart my Instax to see) to do this and the film comes in packs so you'd have to hack something together.

    should be ok...
    take the whole pack, plastic case and all, take the dark slide out (that comes in the front of the pack, it will usually eject when you put it in the camera), tape it to the back of your cam, work out your focal length, and shoot.

    take the pack off your cam and put it in the instax and it should eject the first frame now that there's no dark slide and the rollers will work like normal - spreading the chems and developing your image...

    all the film moving and taping should be done in the dark like, and if you weren't just messing about you could make some sort of back out of a plate holder or something, so you still have a traditional dark slide for attaching it to your cam.

    should be possible for sure...

    makes me wanna try now

    I have a graflex pack film holder and a cheap polaroid camera as well as a polaroid back for type 55... Would those rollers work?

    i'm not sure. you would have to compare the gap in the instax and others to make sure it's tight enough or not too tight. you could try pulling a developed one through just to test.

    you'd also then need a way of pulling it through the rollers...

    if you have a dark bag/room you could just use a brayer, could be interesting

    I have a darkroom. What if I killed the lights and used a rolling pin? From the kitchen?

    as long as you roll it from the right end using, enough pressure i don't see why not...
    never tried it mind.

    you might need to stick it down somehow.

    i've seen polaroids done just by hand... all you need is enough pressure to crack the chemical pack and then try to spread it evenly and in one go

    Why does it have to be in one go? I just bought some of the film, will let you know how it goes.

    just so that you get and even spread that's all...
    if you do it a couple times you could end up with all the chemicals at the top of your frame

    i'm eager to see/hear how it goes
