Hassy polaroid back


New Member
Hello all,

I recently purchased a Hasselblad brand polaroid back on Ebay and I was wondering if someone could introduce me to the film that I would be able to use and any other helpful tips? The only time I have used polaroid film is with a 4x5 large format camera in a past photo class. Thanks.

As with many questions: it all depends on what your intent is.
Currently I use the 669 Film with my Hasselblad Pola-Back, since it is one of those films that can be emulsion-liftet afterwards. So if it is an artistical intent you should get the information from the polaroid-website which films are usable in what way.
If it is rather for checking light, composition etc. I suppose you could opt for any type.
