Options for Polaroid backs

I got my 340 working today and took my first image on FP 100c. Beautiful colours. It's got me thinking about getting a Polaroid back for my Hasselblad but it's a shame not to use up all that real estate on the Polaroid film. Are there any budget camera systems which utilise the whole of the Polaroid film area?

With a little bit of tinkering and time (and a changing bag) you can load the back with instax film, shoot it and then in the dark bag put i in the instax to eject it.
Should probably spend less time talking more time shooting but unfortunately I dont have to leave my desk to talk

A Speed Graphic with a hacked "pack film" holder can be quite cheap, especially if you can find a Polaroid holder for cheap, that was the most expensive part for my conversion on my 4x5 Speed. Now with Fuji killing off the last of the pack film, I wouldn't take any more time to fugurther develop the idea but rather work on Instax Wide back.

Mamiya press or Polaroid 600se

I had a graflex XL and just got a back for it

The Polaroid 405 back for 4x5 takes packfilm; main caveat is that you need a graflock in order to use it without modifying the camera.

Else-wise, look for a Mamiya Press or Universal, which has an interchangeable Polaroid back as part of the system; the Polaroid 600SE is similar with a more limited range of lenses.
