    Which MF cameras are compatible w/ Polaroids?

    Yet another question from me! Please bear with me folks!

    I was wondering which MF cameras were compatible with any sort of polaroid back. Preferably something that has polaroid film readily available for it (especially b/w, but color is fine too!)!

    Thanks,

    Jason

    The Mamiya RB and RZ are compatible with polariod backs and these backs are good available on e-bay.
    I don't know if the film is availble easy or not.

    hope this helps a bit.

    cheers

    The Bronica cameras have polaroid backs as an option. I also do not know about availability of film.
    Art is a step from what is obvious and well-known toward what is arcane and concealed.

    The Rollei SL 66 series. I know of at least three versions. They can take one 6x6 or two 6x4.5 pictures per sheet. Film is readily available, both colour and B&W.

    Best,
    Helen

    Ditto on the RB 67. There is film available from Polaroid and Fuji. I have the 3.25 X 4.25 Polaroid back. There is also one that uses 4X5 film. The pictures are square 77 x 77mm.

    Many of them. I have a Polaroid back for my Bronica S2a, but these are difficult to find.

    The RB/RZ and Hassy Polaroid backs are probably the easiest to find, if that's important to you. The Polaroid image is not the full Polaroid frame, so if you want the largest possible image with a MF camera, go for a 6x7 camera.

    Wouldn't it be easier to ask which modern cameras don't?

    Didn't a 3rd party even make backs for 35mm cameras?

    Polaroid backs also made for the Kowa Super 66, though these days they may not be that easy to find.

    Mamiya 645s will take Polaroid backs as well...I know this because I have one Definitely not full-frame, though.
