You could tell Polaroid shooters because they always toted their trusty white buckets..."

    Re: Polaroidís Quirky Films

    On this topic, I just picked up a Polaroid back for my Contax 645, and am wondering what some good films are to try out. I think that I can find Fuji FP100-C, but are there others, like B&W or other brands?
