A Polaroid shot was used before in tandem with film since you can check instantly with the Polaroid shot your composition and lighting.
It served much like an instant preview in our digital age now but it was only used to assist since the polaroid itself was not "high def" compared with film.

I think one of the last big markets for Polaroids were film crews. They were used to check for continuity.

the only way I know of to mix polaroid and pentax is a 6x7 with an NPC polaroid back. it would have been used basically in the same way GerryL describes.

There were actually other brands other than Pentax which used this tandem.
It was used mainly by the medium format cameras though with a swappable back as was pointed out too by seamuis.

Thank you for your comment rparmar

@ cloudswimmer; that is 2 very nice photos!

@ séamuis; now that you mention it I`ve seen those from time to time on the scandinavian used market. I would definitely like to try it at some point, but i might go for a holga due to the prize.

Best regards

I almost purchased one myself once (I already own a 6x7) but decided against it only because the cost and burden of finding and paying for polaroid film would be more of a chore than using and developing 120. but I really wanted the experience of going downtown, doing some street portraits and having an instant (well in polaroids terms) photo on my hands. who knows, I might have been able to sell them. but this was before I had known of the 'impossible project'.
