  Yeah, just part of the rolling ball. They were phased out of production as of mid 2009. Just a little ahead of schedule given current times. And just when I was getting acquainted with P/N 55 4x5 sheets as well. Whatcha gonna do?

  Chris, check Fuji to see if they're picking up the market with their own brands of color and b&w pack and sheet films. Actually, I've found I like the Fuji stuff better. It was being imported by B&H through Canada.

Ho Ho Ho !!

  I have considered the Fuji but they don't offer anything that will work in my 545 holder so I gotta wait until I can get a holder that will accept their instant packs for 4x5.

I hope you guys had a Happy Holiday. I know I did. My mom got me 10 rolls of Arista 135 to hold me over til tax/G.A.S. time. And my wife got me a transit tripod that, with slight modification, should make my wobbly old 4x5 a little more stable than the Manfrotto lightweight job I have been using so far.

See ya guys around.
Chris

  Hey Chris !!! Ho ho ho ! What's that 545 holder? Does it use a pack or sheets? If it's a holder, take a look at Fuji FP100 C which is the color pack film for (3.5"x4.25) 4x5 and the other is 100 B for black and white. I think both are better than the older Roid versions of 664, etc. They also have peel apart sheets in 10 sheet packs for full-size 4x5 holders. Take a look over here:

B&H used to import this stuff from Canada when Polaroid was really squawking about it infringing on their patent. But it was a better product, IMO. You should contact Fuji Tech Support or sales directly by e-mail and I'll lay odds they have a product that will work in your holder.
Latah Dude !!!
