Polaroid 545 Pro takes Fuji film, right??
As the title says: does the Polaroid 545 Pro Sheet Film Holder take Fuji FP-100 C45 film?
I can't remember
Need to buy a 4x5 instant film back - want to get the Fuji PA-45 but have found a way cheaper Polaroid 545 one.
Polaroid 545/545i film backs are of no use for instant film products available today. These backs were for sleeved, single sheet, film only. Not for the pack style, instant films available today from Fuji.
These useless backs are easily identified by the large toggle lever on the rear of the back.
Example of 545/545i style back:
Fuji makes two sizes of instant, pack films; 3.25 X 4.25 inch, and 4 X 5 inch size.
Compatible backs for the smaller 3.25 X 4.25, instant Fuji pack films are either the Fuji PA-145, or Polaroid 405 backs.
For the larger 4 X 5, Fuji instant pack films, the Fuji PA-45, or Polaroid 550 backs are used.
Possibly sooner, then later, there may only be three, (3) individual types of instant film packs from Fuji.
In 3.25 X 4.25 inch:
1) FP100c, 100 ASA speed color
2) FP3000b, 3200 ASA speed b&w
and in 4 X5:
3) FP100c45, 100 ASA speed color
There is still some 3200 speed b&w, in 4 X 5 (FP3000b45), and some 100 speed b&w, in the smaller size, (FP100b) on some store shelves, but there are indications that production/distribution has ceased on these two varieties.
I've heard the 545 can take quickloads. Then again maybe not.
What, the 3000B is gone for 4x5?
The 545 back can take quickload film but I don't think they are still sold.

Google or use the search function. These questions come up all the time.
Quick loads are no longer manufactured. I got some of the last fuji Provia III from B&H late winter. I guess my 545i will be taking up basement space as soon as I burn through the quickloads.
You can still find the instant film for the 545 on eBay, but it is getting expensive and the quality is sketchy at best. It's a pity these films are no longer made.
