They is not good. I have several cameras that I use it in. Guess have to swap over to Instax.

Just fixed a Mamiya Universal Press polaroid back and used some FP100C Silk.
A pity. Sad

It's real fun to use and in addition it gave good negatives.

I don't myself but I know people who use this professionally for street portraits. Unfortunately there is no substitute.
I have some stock of both FP100C and FP3000B but it won't last forever.

Sad news!

And the prices already are reacting!! One seller has upped the price for the packs he offers yesterday, from 15 to 22!!

I am presentl checking out those vendors who have not yet reacted and am stocking up some film.

I ordered a batch at higher prices today.
Guess I will start the change to Instax sooner than I hoped.

PS: I have 3 Speed Graphics (3x4), An original 110 Pathfinder, Speedliner, 9x12 Glunz folding plate camera all converted to use packfilm. Also have quite a few 100, 250 and other packfilm cameras. This is really bad news for me.

Pete, how did you convert the Speedgraphic to 3x4" packfilm?
Is that a 3,25x3,25" Graphic or is it 4x5"?
