    Megaperls has new and used pa45 backs from time to time. They are also showing a "145" back now, not sure what the difference is but have a look... they have used ones too...

    If all you want to do is check exposure of a central subject then you can use a smaller format (3.25x4.25) instant film in the 405. That saves some $$$ on film.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Just in case you're still not clear, Fuji makes two sizes of film packs. The smaller one fits in the Polaroid 405 holder. I don't believe Fuji even makes a holder for this film themselves. This film gives a 3.25 x 4.25 inch image. The larger film gives a 4x5 image and is compatible with the Fuji holder and the Polaroid 550 holder. The price difference is roughly $12 for the smaller and $30 for the larger. Each pack gives 10 images. The Polaroid 545 individual sheet holder is incompatible with either size.

    Greg, looking at the megaperls site linked above, it looks like the Fuji 145 holder is their version of the 3.25 x 4.25" holder.

    Oh. Sorry about the confusion!

    Two sizes of Fuji Pack film
    1. FP100x is 4.25x3.25 inches, and can be used in the Polaroid 405 back, the Fuji PA-145 back, and the Polaroid 'Automatic' series of cameras (that's another topic, best served by looking for The Land List web site
    2. FP100x45 is 4x5 inches and can be used in the Polaroid 550 back, the Fuji PA-45 back, or some Polaroid passport cameras


    In both cases x can be B or C (B&W or Colour), and actually even the number can change (being the film speed: i.e. FP100; FP400; FP3000; are 100, 400, 3000 ASA respectively).

    The Fuji numbering system is pretty consistent actually! The only fly in the ointment is that there is sometimes a choice of finish - gloss or 'silk', but that's stated in the film name. If 'silk' isn't mentioned, then it's gloss!)

    Keith, that is the first Fuji holder i have seen for the smaller film. B&H, Calumet, or Freestyle don't list it as far as I can find. I was left to guess that Fuji simply made film for Polaroid's holder.

    Bob, with either holder, your camera will need a Graflok type back to hold it. I have managed to fit the Polaroid 405 holder under the GG frame on a Toyo camera, but it won't fit under the frame of my Crown Graphic. It will fit both using the Graflok slides.

    Yup, occasionally I peruse megaperls / Japan exposures and find all sorts of goodies that we don't find in our stores yet!

    I use both the Fuji PA45 and the smaller instant holder (405) with Fuji film for checking difficult exposures. The Fuji PA45 is particularly useful for checking architectural work when using the Schneider 58mm lens and the 405 is useful for checking exposure on Macro work at 1:1 or higher.

    (Fuji FP100C45 fits the Polaroid 550 or Fuji PA-45 back; Fuji FP100C fits the Polaroid 405 back)
    I found a PA-45 today for $20... The store has a couple more (attached to old passport cameras) for $40 each. Hopefully they are still there next Friday...
