    Anything I can buy new that will fit my Fuji PA-45 pack film holder?

    I found tre packs of old Fujifilm FP100B45. This is so fun! Is any new film made for the Fuji PA-45 pack film holder? Or any new 4x5 instant film at all?

    Reportedly, nothing more coming from fuji for 4x5 pack film, sadly. There is still some fp100c45 available, bit prices seem to be rising. I have a small stash, but it is getting hard to find for under $55/box.

    I am quite upset because I bough the holder new back in December and have now learned of the films discontinuance. They really should have let people know a long while before so something like this wouldn't happen....I'm not sure what else you could use..

    I bought a Fuji quick load holder and the same thing happen to me. I had a few boxes stashed away but they are long gone. I'd like just once to get in on the front end of the stuff instead of the last of it.

    Yeah, and now the irony is the holders for the smaller pack film (Fuji PA-145, Polaroid 405) are really hard to find, and way overpriced on ebay. Not available new, at least not in usual places. Fuji definitely dropped the ball and screwed everyone on that. If Fuji had their act together, they would flood the market with PA-145s, as there is huge demand for them, with the demise of FP100C45.

    Better yet, they could just bring back FP100C45, and price it realistically. >:-/

    Actually discontinued, or just another case of Fuji North America going "we don't know whats going on, so we're going to say it's discontinued?" They have perhaps not the greatest track record of knowing whats going on with Fuji Japan and telling people that things don't exist, which do. Case in point: 8x10 Acros 100.

    Agreed re: Fuji NA being out of the loop sometimes, but I really do think FP100C45 is gone for good, there was reports of it on the fujifilm.co.jp site, among other places. And it's impossible to find, of course. There's some old-stock in the pipeline, it can be bought I think from Fuji japan's site, but it's $55/pack+ there plus shipping, basically the same as the ebay prices. It's a shame, the larger size is a great thing for 4x5, although it was always way overpriced compared to the smaller size. ($33/pack vs $7/pack, when both were available new).

    It's gone. Glad I bought my 3.25x4.25 holder before the announcement. The price difference in the film was my motivation, that and the fact I have a Polaroid back for my 645 so I only have to buy one size of Fuji instant.
