    Hi All, You are probably wondering why I have only put this in the UK All Regions and not in the Classified section....Answer I bought some Sinar lens panels from the USA bout 2 months ago and they got lost in the post! Anyway.

    I would like to test my 5x7 back but I don't have any DDS's...I'm after at least one which for obvious reasons must be light tight and functional.

    Anyone help please?

    Cheers Dave
    ps...Any good b+w film required as well

    That 5x7 film on E-Bay is waaay too expensive IMO. That is only 1/3 off the new price from Silverprint. Past date film in stores, even one day past date, is usually at least 50% off. Five years past date, though? I would say to pay no more than 20% of the new price, which would be about £6.00.

    I'd agree with you, but there are some scary prices for ood film on eBay and folks seem prepared to pay them. :confused:

    Edit: just found cheaper on the auction site, but it's in France and it isn't BIN.
