    Polaroid 405 in a 3.25 x 4.25 speed graphic? / What to do with 3x4?

    Hello all,

    I was wondering if anyone has successfully modified a Polaroid 405 pack film back to work on a 3.25 x 4.25 camera.

    Or

    What are my other options for using a 3x4 camera? I picked this thing up at a flea market thinking it was a 4x5. I would be interested in getting a roll film holder for the camera, but I can't seem to find one for 3x4 anywhere.

    Do you think I should get a 2x3 roll film back & glue it on a larger frame?

    My Speed Graphic has the Graflock back.

    Real men use Speed Graphics and flashbulbs.

    Yeah, I just found some 3x4 holders on Etsy & purchased. Soon to buy some film as well. Sirius, are you implying you want to sell? How much would you want per box?

    I was just a bit hesitant since I've never shot large format before. Largest I've shot is 6x6 120.

    Very excited about it though, especially since the speed graphic has a focal plane shutter. I've already found a few odd lens bits that look really good on it.


    Any advice on cheap developing without a darkroom? Student here, so cash flow is fairly restricted.
