    Polaroid Backs

    Thinking out loud again. Are polaroids backs still be used and do you know of any sites where example photos can be seen?

    Another thanks

    Hey, Matt--that's a cool trick! It hadn't occurred to me to use the gallery search engine that way.

    I use one for #55 p/n film. I really don't like the prints that I get, but they are usefull as a "preview in the field" tool. The film is awfull expensive. Here in Canada, it costs about $4.00/frame before taxes.

    cheers eh?

    I use a 545i with 4x5 all the time (mostly Type 54 for proofs, but some PN55), as well as 8x10 Polaroid (Type 804).

    Here's a sample of an 8x10:
