    Anyone ever put printing paper into their Polaroid back?

    So I bought a Polaroid back for RB67 which arrived today. I'm eager to test it as the seals are gummy but I have no film.
    I'm gonna throw some paper in there to see how it works.
    Anyone done this?
    I'll post some examples.
    I'm thinking of using tape to make sure the paper doesn't move around inside the holder.
    Tom.

    I'd be very interested to see the results, and see if the difference in thickness of paper and Polaroid film has any effect. Best of luck to you!

    I'd be interested to see the results. Mine's loaded with FP-100C at the moment so I can't look and see how it might work. If there's an empty cartridge in the back, then that might help it work. From memory the empty cartridge is springloaded (possibly using a foam "spring") so once fitted the paper shouldn't move.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure it's spring loaded but I've only got the 4x5 film at the moment!

    What I thought was the RB back arriving was actually some chemicals so back to the waiting game!! I was really hoping I'd be the first to try this

    a while ago...

    haven't done it in polaroid back, but in 4x5 film holders, which is must easier loading, etc.

    exposure was variable and i didn't work at it long enough to reliable reproduce. the ei/asa was low - like 3 for the paper i used. when it worked the pic's were great - more pictorialist style, sometimes sort of infrareddish- looking!

    Me too... paper negatives are fun and cheap to play with.
    Don't use yellow, red, or orange filters like you do with BW films though.
