14X17 Fidelity filmholders. NEW-IN-BOX. Medical cassettes. Double sided. Metal darkslides. Very robustly made. Made for X-ray use. There is no light trap ridge like on a traditional filmholder, yet there is a light trap end bar. There are safety pins that you disengage before you can remove the darkslides. These have 11X14 inserts held in with flat head socket screws visible in the last 2 pictures. You may remove these inserts for use with 14X17 film or leave them installed for use with 11X14 film. NEW-IN-BOX. You will not find better made filmholders. $600 each. 2 available. I like these filmholders so much that I am condsidering building a camera for them. I would use a rail like I used for the 16X20 camera that is in progress and carrier frames from a copy camera. I would then make a back to fit these filmholders and have bellows made. See my View Cameras web page to see the 16X20 camera.
12X20 F&S vintage filmholder. Darkslides are in great condition. Wood is solid. Interior divider has some surface damage at bottom end of one side as illustrated. Difficult to find at any price. $OLD. I leave this listing up for your information. Note that the 12X20 F&S filmholder is different than the ANSI standard, which is what most other 12X20 filmholders are. If you do not have a F&S camera, do not buy it. If you have a F&S camera, do not buy other filmholders. What is the difference? Instead of a light trap ridge, there is a light trap groove that fits over a brass bar at the filmholder insertion end of the F&S camera. Occasionally a film holder manufacturer made F&S style holders for customers. One of my customers has some Hoffman made F&S style filmholders, but the film to film seat distance was not the same as the original F&S filmholder--SO BE CAREFUL IN BUYING FILMHOLDERS. Another of my customers has some Lotus made F&S style filmholders. If you order 12X20 filmholders from Lotus without specifying that you want F&S style filmholders, you are not likely to get what you need. Make sure you get the filmholders you need.
8X20 Great Basin filmholders are great filmholders. The design is an innovative design that cures a problem with most other film holders. The light trap bars are made of metal. The divider is made of metal. The darkslides are of extra thick Phenolic. Below you will see some photos of Great Basin filmholders. There is no bottom end flap. The bottom ends are fixed. This cures a basic problem or source of light leakage with most other filmholders. Note how you bend the film to install it into the filmholder. In this illustration I used paper for better contrast. The Great Basin filmholder design is not perfect, however. About 1995 I took in trade several 8X20 Great Basin filmholders. The customer took a long time in getting the filmholders to me. The customer had sent the filmholders back to Great Basin to have them repaired because he found that they leaked light. Well, they still leaked light when I received them. I disassembled them and found that an attempt had been made to repair the light leak. The problem with the repair was that the wrong problem was addressed. The fundamental design of the filmholders was flawed. I know how to repair Great Basin filmholders. The repair to correct the basic design flaw is $100 each filmholder. I have sold all the Great Basin filmholders I had in stock. These photos are for your information purposes.
11X17 Haloid or Xerographic film holder (from Xerox's 1st copy camera), "double truck" size or twice the 8.5X11" size, actual image size would be 10 5/8 X 15 9/16", you get one complete single sided holder with an extra Aluminum darkslide, perfect for the person building his own large format camera, darkslides are not bent and the top bars are solid. What this is really good for is as a photo print frame to hang on the wall. Make a print using your 13X19 inkjet printer. It is a bargain for the 2 darkslides. $125. The holder is solid. Paint is coming off some of the wood. There was never a traditional endflap at the bottom of the filmholder that the darkslide goes into as this holder was not meant to hold film, but a Seleniun coated plate; guaranteed to leak light as-is. It does not have the usual film retainer strips on the inside. There appears to be an image of some sort on the inside back of the filmholder. There is also a serial number on the back of the film holder. I also have available the lensboard from this copy camera; it held a Wollensak 13" F10 Apochromatic Raptar. That lensboard is available for $35. A bit of history: Haloid Corp. saw the potential in Chester Carlson's patent and developed the dry print copy machine, which embodied the basic principle of today's laser printers. The 11X17 copy camera Haloid built was one component of several that were required to produce a copy; this design proved to be too cumbersome for most customers. It was not until Haloid came out with the Xerox 914 copier (that utilized a selenium coated drum instead of a flat plate and was a one unit copy machine) that sales increased dramatically and they became very successful.
8X10 Kodak plastic-with-metal-pull film and plateholder darkslides. About 8.5" wide by 11.5" overall length. 0.040" thick. Darkslides only. New-old-stock. 10 available @ $15 each or $100 for all.
"UNBREAKABLE" METAL 8X10 darkslides for the latest Lisco and Fidelity filmholders. About 8.25" wide by 12.25" overall length. 0.025" thick. One piece black anodized aluminum with white paint. Darkslides on newer filmholders are very thin and easily damaged. These are a much better choice. Darkslides only. NEW. $35 each. 10 for $300. 51 available.
FIVE 8X10 FIDELITY CUT FILM HOLDERS WITH ALUMINUM DARK SLIDES. The plastic holders are used. The aluminum dark slides are new. The film holders are complete and intact, light tight and functional. The most likely to fail part of plastic film holders are the thin plastic dark slides. Now that the thin plastic dark slides have been replaced with aluminum dark slides, these film holders should be good for many years more. With 5 holders, you will be able to load a box of 10 sheets of film. $500
4X10 wood/metal filmholders made from 8X10 filmholders, without darkslides. These appear to be very solid filmholders with new felt and of the proper size; just the same, they may need some additional fine tuning. $60 for both filmholders.

6X9 Grafmatic, locked up, needs repair, complete and cosmetically Mint-, $50. The inner cassette may be pulled out--as illustrated, but the darkslide may not be pulled out to access the septums.
There are 2 versions of Grafmatic filmholders, although they are not differentiated by model number, but by features and performance. Those of you who have learned from experience know the difference; you know that one is worth having and the other is not. I buy and sell only the better Grafmatics. 4 available @ $200 each or 4 for $600.

One available in Ex condition for $200 (illustrated with body). Additional photos of rollbacks that have been adapted to cameras and the cameras are available on my pano web page, panoramic cameras
I have three in stock. These rollholders fit cameras with 4X5 Graflok backs or 4X5 International backs or the 4X5 Galvin back. Mint, 2 available, $700 each. Mint-, $600.
I have many in stock. 1st come gets the best rollholder I have in stock. When I run out of clean ones, I will reduce the price for the less clean ones. These rollholders fit 6X9cm or 2.25X3.25" Graflok backs such as are found on the Graflex XL and the Galvin 6X9cm View Camera. The 6X9cm "Galvin Graflok back on Steroids" illustrated below is also available and may be found near the end of my View Cameras web page. The Galvin back and will accept these rollholders should you need to replace the back on your camera in order to use these rollholders.
Graflex 23RH20 rollholders, for 120 or 220 film, late model, lever advance with spring return, several available, $175 each. 10 exposures on 120 film. 20 exposures on 220 film. 2.25X2.75" or 6X7cm nominal image size.
Graflex 23RH10 rollholders, for 120 film, late model, lever advance with spring return, several available, $175 each. 10 exposures on 120 film. 2.25X2.75" or 6X7cm nominal image size.
Graflex 23RH8 rollholders, for 120 film, late model, lever advance with spring return, several available, $200 each. 8 exposures on 120 film. 2.25X3.25" or 6X9cm nominal image size. These are much less common than the 6X7 rollholders.
Graflex 23RH8 rollholders, for 120 film, early model, knob advance, several available, $200 each. 8 exposures on 120 film. 2.25X3.25" or 6X9cm nominal image size. These knob wind holders are more reliable than the lever advance holders because there is no return spring to break. Personally, I prefer them.
Graflex 23RH8 rollholders, for 120 film, early model, knob advance, several available, $200 each. 8 exposures on 120 film. 2.25X3.25" or 6X9cm nominal image size. There is a difference between this knob wind 23RH8 and the above 23RH8. This one does not have the film flattening rollers on the inside. This may be an advantage or it may be a disadvantage. The film flattening rollers do hold the film flatter. The rollholders w/o the film flattening rollers have a larger window. Note the difference in the window opening; it is significant.
Graflex 23RH12 rollholder, for 120 film, early model, knob advance, only one available, $200. 12 exposures on 120 film. 2.25X2.25" or 6X6cm nominal image size. Without film flattening rollers.
I have many in stock. 1st come gets the best rollholder I have in stock. When I run out of clean ones, I will reduce the price for the less clean ones. These rollholders fit cameras with 4X5 Graflok backs or 4X5 International backs. The Graflok back was invented by Graflex. International backs are copies of Graflok backs. Most modern cameras have International backs. 4X5 Graflok backs and International backs typically allow you to remove the focusing panel and install accessory rollholders, etc. by sliding bars over the side edges of the rollholder or whatever.
Graflex 45RH8 rollholders, for 120 film, late model, lever advance with spring return, several available, $225 each. 8 exposures on 120 film. 2.25X3.25" or 6X9cm nominal image size. These are much less common than the 6X7 rollholders.
Graflex 45RH8 rollholders, for 120 film, early model, knob advance, several available, $200 each. 8 exposures on 120 film. 2.25X3.25" or 6X9cm nominal image size. These knob wind holders are more reliable than the lever advance holders because there is no return spring to break. Personally, I prefer them.
Graflex 45RH12 rollholders, for 120 film, late model, lever advance with spring return, only one available, $225. 12 exposures on 120 film. 2.25X2.25" or 6X6cm nominal image size. Rare. I had a customer who used these on a 4X5 camera to photograph products for a Sunday newspaper supplement. The client wanted the product shot on 6X6cm film to save money. The photographer did not want to compromise quality; he was able to utilize camera movements on his view camera while saving the client money on film.
Linhof rollbacks available, listed under Linhof in view camera list
GLENNVIEW. About 3X8'. One end has a heavy duty elastic band inside the hem. It is designed to fit over a large format camera with a perimeter of no more than 48". I made it specifically for use with an 8X10 Sinar Norma, although it will work with many other cameras. Made out of rubber coated cotton darkroom blackout cloth also known as bellows material. This is as good as it gets. $85
GLENNVIEW. About 3X7'. One end has a heavy duty elastic band inside the hem. It is designed to fit over a large format camera with a perimeter of no more than 44". I made it specifically for use with a compact 8X10 Handy type camera, although it will work with many other cameras. Made out of rubber coated cotton darkroom blackout cloth also known as bellows material. Made like the above dark cloth. This is as good as it gets. $80

I was testing a lens. I was having trouble focusing the lens. I switched to a Deardorff GG. Focusing was much easier. The problem was the GG. The other GG looked good, but simply didn't perform well. Quality ground glass is essential. You can count on Deardorff and other name brand view camera GG to be of high quality. Occasionally I will find too coarse GG in a view camera back being offered by used camera dealers at camera shows. It doesn't do any good to explain to the dealer that his GG is no good. He either does not understand or does not care. In such a case, I must buy or not buy based upon the need to replace the low quality GG. I only sell quality GG. My GG is guaranteed to perform to your satisfaction or your money back. Once, when Deardorff was out of GG, I ordered a GG from Wisner. Wisner's GG performed well, but Wisner didn't inform me that they had different thicknesses of GG available. Wisner simply gave me a price on their least expensive and thinest GG in order to make the sale. So specify thickness when ordering GG. Some cameras call for thin GG. You may want thin GG because it is lighter. Thicker GG is more durable, however. Also, Wisner will only sell GG with square corners. I needed GG with cut corners. Wisner does not sell GG with cut corners because there is risk in breaking the GG when cutting the corners. Wisner allows you to bear that risk. Also, it takes time to cut the corners. I will cut the corners for you, but I must charge for the risk and the time. Deardorff cameras and most wood cameras require cut corners because the wood turns up at the corners. Also, most photographers prefer GG with cut corners so they may see the lens aperture. With most lenses, if you can see the full circular aperture from the GG corner, the lens will cover that corner. Oftentimes, you need GG of special sizes and thicknesses for cameras such as Linhof, Sinar and Plaubel.
11X14 GG, ruled, with about 1" squares, with cut corners, supplied by Jack Deardorff, but not labeled, New, $100
8X10 GG, plain, high quality government surplus, probably made by Kodak, cut corners, 0.090" thick, with slight mottling due to having been stored between sheets of cardboard for years, $50
4X5 GG, plain, high quality government surplus, probably made by Kodak, square corners, 0.064" thick, $20
Sinar GG is listed on my Sinar web page.
Linhof and Plaubel GG is listed with Linhof cameras and accessories on my View Cameras web page.
I needed a 16X20 ground glass, but a 16X20 GG did not make sense. Dealing with such a large camera is difficult. It would be easy to break the GG. Imagine what a broken GG in your camera bellows is like to deal with. Finding a replacment 16X20 GG would be difficult. I know because I tried to find a quality 16X20 GG. A US supplier could supply one on special order with a considerable wait time, but he could not tell how fine the ground surface was so I did not order from him. Another US camera manufacturer could supply a high quality GG also on special order with a considerable wait time and at an exhorbitant price so I did not order from him. A Lithuanian could supply a GG that may or may not have been acceptable.......but, of course, shipping was expensive so I did not order from him. I could not even find a supplier of ground plastic! I learned how to make my own ground plastic. Initially I ground a well used 4X5" piece of Polycarbonate I had laying around. I then comparison tested it alongside a Sinar GG. I found that with a fine enough grind, I could focus as easily with the self made ground plastic as with the Sinar GG. I also had a larger piece of unused Polycarbonate on hand, so I ground the whole piece and cut it up into 4X5, 5X7, 8X10 and 11X14" pieces. I am holding the piece of 11X14 ground plastic. It is new and has a colored piece of easily removable plastic film protecting the clear side. The ground plastic is angled so that it is reflecting the illuminating light. You can see the nice even finely ground matt surface. Polycarbonate is really tough stuff. I am bending 1/8" square pieces of Polycarbonate which are no where near the breaking point. You can bend Polycarbonate over against itself and it still will not break. I can supply ground plastic in any size you are likely to ask for. Polycarbonate is lighter weight than glass. The Polycarbonate that I have in stock presently is about 1/8" thick. I can buy it in some other thicknesses. Polycarbonate, when held in a camera GG frame will be held flat enough....but certainly not as flat as glass. Polycarbonate will scratch much easier than glass........but it is virtually unbreakable. I have a quantity of used Polycarbonate available, complete with scratches, that I can supply at a 25% discount. Cutting Polycarbonate is problematic because it is so tough. Add $20 for cut corners on any size 8X10 or smaller. Add $50 for cut corners on larger sizes. If you want to try it without a big investment, order a 4X5 ground plastic and give it a try.

20X20" OD hardwood carier frames with readily removable bellows frames from Clydesdale camera, high quality construction, finger joints at corners, would be good for 11X14 or 14X17" camera rear standards, $300 each or will trade one for 14X17" filmholder
64" long Aluminum extrusion ideal for use as large format (14X17 or 16x20 or 20X24") camera monorail, Ex, $150 each, 4 or 5 available. You may see pictures of an altered one of these used on a 16X20 camera that I built on my View Cameras web page.
Leitz 21mm viewfinder without the front glass. As is, it serves as a very compact loupe. Magnification about 6X to 8X. $75
5X Kodak Achromatic focusing loupe, coated, round clear plastic base, boxed, crack in plastic base, $45
Collapsable metal framed quality loupe with 1" square viewing area with 1/8" grid. About 5-10X magnification I guestimate. Professional graphic arts loupe. Informally called a "linen tester." It got wet. The multiple element glass lens needs interior cleaning. Lens elements are held in with a threaded brass retaining ring. Functions as-is, but the image is compromised. $20
8X acromatisch, 1X1X1.5", clear plastic base, fixed focus, Ex+, $15
8X Edmund, adjustable focus, clear plastic base, 1.5X1.5X2", plastic case, box, NEW, $5
Reflex viewer with adjustable angle front surface mirror and face-form-fitting eyeshield. Similar to the Sinar reflex viewer. The removable eyeshield allows you to reposition the eyeshield so you can use the reflex viewer in either the horizontal or vertical position. The adjustable angle mirror allows you to perfectly adjust the mirror for the brightest image. The adjustable angle mirror works especially well with Fresnel lenses--allowing you to see into the corners. The person who sold me this reflex viewer said it was for a Toyo view camera, but he was not 100% sure. I do not know what camera it is designed for; if you know, please tell me. It is not difficult to adapt to virtually any camera. I adapted another one to Sinar by buying a Sinar coupling frame that fit it perfectly; you will find that on my SINAR CAMERAS web page. I have adapted this to fit a Gowlandflex, now sold. The camera adapter is still available for $50.
Minolta Spotmeter F, case, instructions. It was used to determine the exposure for this image; you may check the EXIF data. This is the meter to use for strobe light. Also reads ambient light. Absolutely accurate! Reads out to 1/10 F-stop. Mint, $450
Sargeant Welch Transmission light source with adaptor to accept Pentax digital spotmeter which will become the heart of your densitometer, variable brightness, w/extra bulb, several aperture disks, spring loaded overarm holds light meter, instruction book, schematic, stabilized power supply, $OLD. Need parts or accessories for this unit? You will find them listed on my Darkroom Equipment-Timers, Analyzers, Densitometers and more web page. If you own a Pentax digital spotmeter, then you know that it is absolutely accurate and consistent. You trust it for your field light readings. Why trust anything else for your laboratory light readings. I can sell you a 21 step negative density step wedge for $50. Or, if you prefer, an EV/density translation scale based upon readings from the 21 step scale is available for $10. Note: practically every densitometer I have ever used other than the old Kodak comparison densitometer has proven to be unreliable over the long run. This Sargeant Welch Transmission light source is just a light source as is the Kodak comparison densitometer. It does not have any of the trouble prone parts of the more complex densitometers. You trust your Pentax digital spotmeter in the field; it only makes sense to trust it in the darkroom.

When you price custom made bellows be sure to consider the time it makes to make them. From some manufacturers, that will be months. And sometimes, for various reasons, they are not what you expected when you do get them. At least one bellows manufacturer accepts no returns. Many manufacturers know how to make bellows for machinery, etc., but not for cameras. Many bellows makers bellows will not have the right stiffness/flexibility. Some manufacturers are overseas; shipping can be expensive. New or used bellows made for some other purpose may be difficult for you to adapt to your camera; build your camera around the bellows if possible. If you can find some bellows made by a quality bellows manufacturer specifically for your camera, buy them. You might want to consider making your own bellows. Jack Deardorff showed me 12 pages of calculations he made for making 12X20 bellows; BTW, the precision required is difficult for the novice to achieve. There is a very steep learning curve. Bag bellows, however are not difficult to make yourself.
Bellows material with the right stiffness/flexibility for bag bellows. Approximately 50X34" in size. 0.018" thick. Vinyl coated woven cloth with a slight sheen on one side and matt finish on the other side. $20 each piece. 2 pieces available.
4X5 bellows from Durst L1000 enlarger, Ex, $100
8X10 bellows, from either an 8X10 or an 11X14 Fotar enlarger, will list specifics upon demand. There is some information and photos on my 8X10 Enlargers, Enlarging Heads, etc. web page.
Most of my bellows are listed along with the cameras or enlargers that they fit. Sinar bellows will be found on my Sinar list, Durst bellows will be found on my Durst list, etc.
4X5 bellows, no frames, 5.5X5.875" O.D. ~6" extension, probably enlarger bellows, black, Ex, $40

11X14 bellows from 11X14 Consolidated enlarger, with front bellows frame, light tight. Bellows extend to 30" and collapse to 4". Front outside dimensions are 10.75 X 13.5". Rear outside dimensions are 15.25 X 17.375". Rear inside dimensions are 13.75 X 15.75". $200. Note: I have other components from this 11X14 Consolidated enlarger.
16X20 bellows from NuArc copy camera, ~20" extension, light tight. They were never under much stress on the copy camera....merely being extended stright out and back within their designed working range. The bellows are made of 2 layers of a very heavy duty cloth with stiffeners inbetween. The bellows are as good as new and should last a very long time. I have 2 of these bellows. The one seen here has front and rear frames. The other has just the front frame. The choice is yours. If your lens has a longer focal length than the bellows, build a rear carrier frame with an extra long box and add the bellows to the front of the box. So, if you have a 1000mm lens, build a box about 900mm long and add these bellows to the front, so that you may focus from infinity to as close as the bellows will will allow. $300
This is the 16X20 bellows from NuArc copy camera with just the front frame....illustrated separately so you will not get them confused. $300
Building your own view camera or rebuilding a camera? KNOBS, 1/4-20TPI threaded brass socket in black plastic knobs. Say you need knobs with a threaded stud.
