    4x5 Format
    I recently got a 18x24 cm Mentor Panorama 2 view camera. It came with one "film" holder. I say "film" because it looks like one of those older slide in plate holders with a film sheeth in it. I like the shape of the format, but I will need more holders. If anyone knows of some film holders for this camera, or plate holders and/or sheeths, I'd very much appreciate the help.

    Although the paint finish is very different from the nice silver gray hammoretone on the Mentor holder that I do have, I did notice that some of those cheaper 18x24 plate holders made for the Russian Fed cameras look to be the same - anybody have an opinion on that?

    Thank you,
