    What film holder for 4x5 pack film?

    I have been shooting a lot of Fuji pack film in my Calumet 4x5 but it is not the full 4x5 format film. I am wanting to shoot the full 4x5 FP100C45 film and I have been told to use everything from a Polaroid 405 or the 550 holder instead of the more expensive Fuji PA45. Will either of those work for what I am wanting to do?

    I'm pretty sure a Polaroid 405 will work for Fuji. The fellow that bought mine was sure thats what he wanted it for.

    Rick, I have a 504 but apparently I need the 405 or the 550 for 4x5 sized pack film.

    I have been enjoying the lens I got from you by the way.

    The 405 is for the smaller 3x4 film, get the 550 holder for the larger, full 4x5 size film.

    Good, when do we see some results. I have a 545 back and 23 sheets of 4x5 T-54 Polapan 100 for a reasonable price if you are interested.

    Greg, I didn't mean to be so rude. I am rushing around trying to get ready for an early 1 AM call tomorrow.

    I had thought that the 550 or the Fuji equivalent was going to be what I need, Thnks.
