Fuji Quickload holder (Polaroid)greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
I am planning on using the Fuji Quickloads with a Toyo AEII.
What holder would be best for the Fuji. Would the 545i Polaroid holder be acceptable for this usage.
Thanks for your input

The Fuji holder will give you much better film flatness and much smoother operation... but it will work in the 545, and I have produced some sharp images with that combination.

The Fuji Quickload holder is a precision instrument. The 545i is flat enough for a proof print but is not suited for film. I have recently inserted a Quickload in it for a friend who wanted to try the Quickloads and flatness was so bad we renounced using it. If you do not use wide-angles and have plenty of depth of field, results can be acceptable as Glen suggests.
