    Fuji Packfilm

    Hello-
    I was wondering if any of you guys know if Fuji ever made pack film cameras to fit films like their FP-100. Were the FP-100 designed with only Polaroid in mind?

    I am only aware of the instax cameras, which use a similar instant film.

    There were pack-film cameras made in Japan, such as one made by Konica. In addition, pack-film backs were made for most Japanese medium-format cameras. Also, passport cameras have used pack-film for many years, regardless of who manufactured them. So Fuji had a Japanese market for pack-film.

    Good morning, Patrick;

    While I do not have a direct answer to your question, I can tell you that Fujifilm did make a 4 by 5 format film holder to fit their instant film pack. I recall seeing them at one of our larger camera stores out here in Latte Land for about $ 160.

    In recognition of the heritage of the Fuji Instant Film, you will hear people out here referring to it as "Fujiroid."
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    If my memory serves me here, I think it was called the FP-1 (the one Fuji made). It's VERY hard to find. Occassionally you'll see a photo taken with one over at Polanoid.net.

    DRabbit is correct. The Fuji cam is the FP-1, and it's a fantastic camera. They are few & far between, as I believe they were never officially imported into the US. My FP-1 came from Tokyo via eBay. They pop up there from time to time, as does the Konica Instant Press (which is also a fantastic cam).

    Here's a bit of interesting info:
