After Fuji announced the end of the road for FP-100c I went around searching for a way to use Instax on my Crown Graphic (I was just about to pull the trigger on a fp100c back for the Crown Graphic, so this was just a slight course change). I saw a fabricated back on Flickr and contacted the user inquiring if the had any for sale. Luckily for me he had a second back and he was willing to sell it to me.
Here is a few shots of the back and ground glass adapter:
I'm quickly getting used to the belair back and slowly learning the proper exposure for Instax under various conditions. The sharpness is much better than my Instax Wide results and at least I can mess up the exposure instead of the camera
. Currently it is a slow process as I am focusing with the ground glass, but I'm planning on buying a second set of stops so that I can use the back with the rangefinder as well.
Here is a shot from the setup today:
I'm having great time with the back and I'm really glad there are people out in the world with such skills.
