    There is much less 4x5 instant film available now than there used to be. The two peel apart films that I am aware of are Fuji FP-100C colour film, and FP-3000B black and white, but I think that those are both only available in 3.25x 4.25 and wouldn't work in my old Polaroid film holder.

    There is a group trying to bring back a version of the Polaroid type 55 film, you can follow them here: http://new55project.blogspot.com/ but I don't think that they have anything ready for prime time yet.

    You can use a Polaroid 405 adapter or a Fuji PA-45. Either one will use the Fuji 100C or 3000B film, giving you an image size of 3.25" x 4.25" I'm quite fond of the FP 3000B film. It's fast, very fine grained and has a good tonal range.

    Actually, I just grabbed one a while back. Its the Fuji PA-145... The PA-45 is the one for the now scarce 4x5 instant film.
