Yes, I have the Polaroid Land back for my RB67, it takes the Fuji instant FP100C and FP100B films.
Current new ones from Mamiya:
Or get a used one. Check the compatibility chart for older ones, I have the Pro S
And, to all, on this subject of Polaroid backs, remember that the Polaroid backs that have a large toggle lever on the back, (facing the photographer when installed), these backs are the ones labeled 545 or 545i, are [absolutely and totally] useless for instant photography today.
Also, I don't have any kind words for those individuals selling 545/545i backs today, without first informing others to the uselessness of these backs. And no, I have not bought one of these backs, however I do keep a list of those individuals that sell these backs. It is becoming a fairly long list. It's my, "Crooks!...Do Not Buy From!" list.
Fuji doesn't make instant film for these backs, and the Impossible Project doesn't seem to be considering making any instant film for these backs.
The Polaroid backs for use with three (3) of Fuji's instant pack films, "FP100b" (B&W 100 ASA), "FP100c" (Color 100ASA), and "FP3000b" (B&W 3200ASA)
are called a "405" Back. These films are 3.25 X 4.25 inches in size, 10 sheets per pack.

Unfortunatly for me I have managed to collect half a dozen 545s over the years.
Has anyone figurerd out a good use for them?
Well, if you have any quickloads, you can use the 545 backs for that. I once had thoughts of preparing my own quickloads by recycling some of the sleeves.

I did see some references to a project attempting to recreate a P/N peel apart. Not type 55 per se, but similar.
I think Bob Carrie is involved. But I don't know the status of that.
In My Opinion, the Mamiya Pro II Fuiroid back is the best, read why.
The best Polaroid, ( now Fujiroid ), back for the
Mamiya RZ is the Pro II back.
The Pro II back has both black Horizontal & Vertical
6 x 7 Cropping Slides available, as well as a place to
store the normal shiny dark slide.
The Fujiroid back does not rotate & thus will always
shoot a 7 x 7 image. The cropping slides make it
easier to match the cropping of the Fujiroid to the
I always thought that these were brilliant, except
that while Mamiya, goes out of it's way to provide
a locking back cover to keep their film backs clean,
they never made one for the then Polaroid back.
I finally had to make one myself.
A zip-lock baggie works great to keep things like Polaroid/Fuji instant film backs clean.
I reused/recycled some black, anti static electronic equipment sleeves for this purpose.
Adds a little extra light-tight insurance as well.
