I use an old polaroid. ( Actually several of them ) )I think they mainly make the film for their instant film backs for Medium and Large format cameras. I have seen references to cameras made for this film, but I have never actually seen one for sale.
Your question made me curious.. so I looked it up. According to the data sheet, FP films are for the Fuji Passport "FP" cameras such as the FP-14. It is a beast with four lenses and shutters to take.. you guessed it.. Passport Photos!
Otherwise, its just for camera backs and old Polaroids.
You can use the packs in any 4x5 camera with a Graflok back, such as a Speed or Crown Graphic, if you get the Polaroid 405 holder (or Fuji's version of it). IMO, the best way to shoot nice quality Polaroid is to do this, or get a Mamiya Press Universal with the Polaroid back.
Either way you go (Speed/Crown or Universal), you will not spend more than a few hundred bucks, and will be able to shoot both silver film and full-sized (3-1/4x4-1/4) instant prints in the same camera.
I personally favor the Mamiya, as it has a coupled rangefinder that works with seven focal lengths, 50mm - 250mm. The Speed's or Crown's RF can only be adjusted for one lens at a time. A Super Graphic (or a Linhof, for that matter, though they are way more spendy) would match this advantage, however.
Don't be a chump and spend beaucoup bucks on a Polaroid 600SE! The Universal can do everything that camera can do, plus about 10 times more, at a mere fraction of the cost!
