    Bronica ETRSI Polaroid Back

    I recently received my Bronica ETRSI camera and considering whether a POLAROID NPC MF5 back is practical and worth the effort. I will be shooting mostly B&W and would like some pros/cons on the use of the back. Also any sources where I can buy some short/outdated film?

    As always, thanks for your honest and rapid reponses.

    I have one, and it's saved me a LOT of film.

    Pros: Instant feedback - you see all the ugly little details hiding behind the bride, and that the groom's tie is crooked.

    Cons: Price of polaroids, and their short shelf life.

    Don't buy outdated Polaroid film; chances are it will be utterly dead.
