    Cameras for Fuji pack film with manual control?

    Are there any cameras out there with manual shutter speed and aperture controls that accept the Fuji pack films? (not including the 4x5 films)

    I see on B&H that in addition to the wide-format Instax film they also have a 3.25x4.25 pack film; what cameras accept this stuff? I am only familiar with the single Instax camera for sale here, basically a very large instant point-and-shoot.

    pack film

    there was just a thread here if you do a search but there are quite a few of the older polaroid cameras (i believe the 420 series) on the bay in great shape that will accomplish this

    the packfilm is used in a variety of cameras. My favorite is the Polaroid Land 350. They'll pop up on ebay for less than $20. They have auto exposure with compensation and usually a rangefinder focusing mechanism. I've seen manual types from mamiya, I can't remember the model number.

    Check out The Land List for a comprehensive catalog of which Polaroid does what.

    Briefly, the 180 and 195 are Polaroid folding cameras that have manual aperture and shutter speed controls. You can find them on Ebay but they are pricey.

    The Polaroid 600SE is a press-type rangefinder camera that is fully manual. It is very very similar (but not identical) to the Mamiya Universal, which, with the proper back, also will give you a full-frame image on the 3.25x4.25 pack film
