I guess we'll start with instant film backs. Fuji stopped making FP-3000B45 4x5 instant pack film a while back. They still sell fp-100C (color) and fp-3000b (B&W) in the 3x4 size but you need a special holder for that on a 4x5 and they just announced recently the discontinuation of the fp-3000b. If I was a betting man, I'd say fp-100c will not last another three years as a Fuji product so I don't see that as a viable option. Polaroid is, of course, no longer making type 55 film, though a new project called "New 55" has been working on creating a new, original instant film for 4x5 that will have similar characteristics to type 55.
Do you have any experience with your own home film developing ? Are you looking to shoot B&W primarily or also C41 or E6 slide films ?
