    The correct back is the Fuji PA-145 or the Polaroid 405. Either will take Fuji Fp-100c instant film and will fit on most view cameras and press cameras.

    Or the Fuji PA-45 back or Polaroid 550 backif you want to use the full 4x5 size Fuji/Polaroid pack film.

    In America but japan still has it. And eBay had tons, but it certainly is more expensive, then again, more image surface area.

    But certainly the PA-145 back and film is easier to come by.

    I don't know about you, but i don't want to pay fifty bucks for a pack of ten sheets of film that I might not be able to get tomorrow.

    Well, I did (it was only $30 at the time hehe) and it's a lot of fun to shoot, but I'm shifting gears a lot, and getting rid of a lot of my gear to focus on what is most important to me so I just don't need it and won't use it like I used to use it.

    I have a PA-145 and PA-45 and getting rid of that one and an extra pack of film, I still have a bunch of the FP-3000B left so I'm holding into the PA-145 for now.

The full 4x5 packfilm and sheetfilm that go in the larger 4x5 Polaroid backs are no longer available fresh from anyone.
    At the risk of hijacking this thread a bit, how do people reliably frame shots on 4x5 with this smaller-format film? I'm about 2 packs into my 4x5 instant adventure but I frequently mis-frame: how can I add the right lines to my ground glass?

    unity: I made a cardboard template to put over my ground glass. Or you could perhaps mark it off with a china marker or a dry-erase marker. I found that for portraits, putting the person's head right in the middle of the frame seemed to work, but your mileage may vary.
