So although these fit traditional backs...
Not sure what you mean by this. The integral films cannot be used in the Polaroid and Fuji holders designed for peel-apart and P/N films. The integral film comes loaded in a pack or cassette that's inserted directly into a compatible camera. After exposure, the individual sheet is ejected through rollers built into the camera, which spread the development chemicals.
With a bit of fussing, it is possible to load individual sheets of Fuji Instax films into double cut-film holders normally used for sheet film. However, the exposed film has to be taken into the darkroom and run through the rollers in a compatible instant camera to be developed. Maybe someone out there has the dexterity to put the sheets back into the cassette in a changing bag and run it through a camera in daylight while blocking the lens so that the film isn't re-exposed.
So my Polaroid-compatible backs for my 4x5 monorails or for my Bronica ETRSi would not work with the 600-pack currently offered by the new 'Polaroid' company.
So it is highly unlikely that the current stuff would fit at all on my Bronica (no compatible mount)
but something might work OK in the classic 4x5 sheetfilm holder standard?!
Or their films work ONLY in their cameras/packs, and they are nothing but an instaprint camera and film company which ignores past medium format Polaroid backs or large format Polaroid backs of the past?!
(Their web site is woefully insufficient on describing products they offer...an 8x10 pack works how?!
Been a while since I used to do this, and I haven't kept up on it. Do the materials (not talking old stock) to make transfers still exist? Is the Fuji doable? Anyone still doing it?
