    I have a 16x20 project from scratch in the making, and so far the camera is finished and lens is on its way (A 24" Red Dot Artar in shutter) but I still lack a back and a film holder (considering the price of film and my tendency to expose what I carry I want to start with just one holder).
    Maybe I will try to build a holder but buying one is also an option.
    Does anyone one know of where to buy 16x20" holders?

    Thanks

    Jesper

    Thanks for the advice. I only checked Lotus and they had 20x24" but not 16x20".
    I had forgotten about Chamonix.

    Lotus will make them in any size you want - I talked to them about getting some 12x15 holders made last year. Don't forget in the US, Richard Ritter (lrg4mat.net), S&S, and Alan Brubaker. The guy who makes Argentum cameras in ┬┐Czech Republic?/┬┐Hungary? might also make custom holders for less than Chamonix holders. I think he was selling some 11x14 holders on Ebay not long ago.
