    Some 5x7" cameras with 4x5" backs have problems with the Polaroid holders - the "lump" at the top interferes with the camera back plate, so that the holder won't seat properly. The flatter the back, the worse. It is a good idea to check whether a Polaroid holder will actually fit on a conversion back before deciding on that solution. I had this problem with a Linhof Technika III 5x7", and that is why I got a 4x5" Linhof Color.

    Having had a Speed Graphic and the B&J Press camera in 4x5, I'd recommend the SG first if you're going to carry it much. The B&J has a metal body - VERY solid, but noticeably heavier.

    Can you guys offer any suggestions as to any [old] folding camera that can take Type 55 instant film?

    Is it possible?

    How 'bout an MPP technical camera? They're basically British versions of Linhof technical cameras but they are a heck of a lot cheaper. They are extremely robust and they can take Polaroids backs. They come up on ebay fairly regularly.

    Good luck.
