    That's an excellent system. Knowing my proclivity to expand the envelope on Murphy's Law, I'd end up with the polaroid in the tank....
    Thanks for the tip.

    I don't shoot much 4X5 Polaroid. Instead, I keep a lot of Fujiroid 3x4 packs handy and use them in a 405 holder. I use far more Fujiroid in the Polanoid back for my Bronicas than with the 4X5 cameras.

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    I think this is a known problem with Cambo backs. If I remember correctly, they have a metal protrusion that is part of a mechanism that holds a release cable that attaches to a Sinar-style auto-diaphragm shutter. The idea is that you can focus and meter through the back at full aperture, insert the filmholder, and the lens automatically stops down by pressing the release. If you don't use this system, some people just grind off that obstruction.

    Hmm, that's not it though I think.. the slot is simply not big enough for the holder....
    the pola-holder is about an inch larger...

    An inch longer or an inch wider?

    The standard 545 holder is the same wide as the 4x5 film holder.

    Sure you did not get an older 545 that was made for the graflex back, the graflex back is wider than a standard 4x5 they are rare, but I see one pop up every once in a while, the standard 545 or 545i back should fit any camera that takes standard 4x5 holders.

    I tried using paranoid but gave it up as my confidence built up. I thought it was a waste and at 2 bucks a pop, it wasn't really helping much. I figgured that I might as well bracket since I process my B\W anyway. Sometimes I shoot M\F along with the 4x5 if on the pod and process that first. However, I still woudl like to use it from time to time but it's so damn spendy.
