Filter to transform color to B&W
Is there some kind of filter that I can mount on my Polaroid camera that will transform color Fuji FP-100 C film in B&W?
I know that there is B&W type 100 Fuji film, but color one I would like to use because it is cheaper and because you can bleach negative later and make contact print on B&W paper, and I don’t want to have color positive, I want B&W one
Unfortunately, such a filter does not exist. Light doesn't work that way! You're going to have to use the B&W film. I don't know what prices are like in Poland, but in the USA FP-100C and FP-100B are nearly the same price. In fact, FP-100B tends to be slightly cheaper.
Here in shop 100C is around 20 US dollars, 100B around 29 US dollars.

Are you sure these aren't two different sizes?

The 4x5 variants are considerably more expensive...

If you can find a filter that will do that, you'd deserve the Nobel Prize to say the least!

You could try to find a "Monochromatic Viewing Filter".
The idea behind that thing is that it takes away just about all other colours such that you only end up with a monochromatic image, albeit not black and white with greys inbetween.
Your suggestion to use any other strongly coloured filter will do as well, Darko.
But colourless it wil never be.
