loading a 545i

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I have a 550 film holder, and I don't like it. It is problematic with roller pressure and there is consistent waste with the film packs. I think I would be better off with a Polaroid sheet film setup. Question- Does the 545i need to be loaded in darkness? Can an individual sheet be taken into the field and loaded into the holder in daylight? How do you load the 545i? Thanks, any help appreciated.

The 545i is loaded in daylight. Individual sheets can be taken into the field and loaded in daylight. The instructions for loading a 545i are included with the holder and also available online. It is easy to do.

Thanks Chris. I think that this is the route I will take. The online instructions seem to be clear enough,
