I freezed FP-100c myself. No problem.
The "don't freeze instant film" is true for Polaroid products. Fuji was smart enough to solve this problem. Also Fuji instant film can be kept much longer after expiration, even unfrozen and even at room temperature, than Polaroid material. I have FP-100c that I bought expired (2 years in the shop) 7 years ago. Don't know how it was stored in the shop (guess at room temperature) but I stored it in the freezer, in the fridge, in the basement, at room temperature in this 7 years. (Depending on how much I needed the freezer or fridge for other things.) Now it's going onto his 10th year and still works. I had 60 packs, used 2 last year, have 40 to go. (Well... it was cheap and they gave plus discount for buying all they had avaible.)
Fuji FP material is suffering largely from urban legend that it inherited from Polaroid:
- "bad resolution and unnatural colors" -- not true, this material very much approaches normal CN film in my opinion (and if you bleach the negative of FP-100c and scan from there you will approach MF or even LF).
- "expensive" -- One FP-100c picture cost about 1,10 EUR, FP-3000B maybe 1,60 EUR. One frame of slide film would cost you more, one 10x15 print the same if you take in account material, developing and printing cost.
- "can't be stored over expiration" -- not true again, don't know if you can store it as long as non-instant film but for shure it can be stored years to go
I never understood the need to support expensive experiments with PX film when at the same time Fuji offers much cheaper much better quality.
OK, now why I accessed this thread.
I recently got a Fuji back for the RB67. (That means it is a back for Packfilm and it has the Fuji logo embossed in the plastic.) It goes onto the P-adapter.
My question is how to load it and where would the picture placed on the film. Also is it of no importance which direction I fix it on the P-adapter?
