    I'm losing the ten year battle to purchase an 8x10 camera, so I've found a pinhole 8x10 camera for a little over 100 bucks but it needs an 8x10 film holder. Is there anywhere on this planet that sells them cheaper than $100?

    Lots of places, KEH will have some, as will MPEX, EP Levine's and others.

    Clifford,

    You can find them. It all depends where you live. I purchased 3 of them, 2 in user shape the third might make a good picture frame, for $10 at a camera show/swap meet.

    I have also purchased some on fleabay for $20. Not the prettiest, but usable.

    hi there,
    I am a new member and am building a new 8x10 pinhole camera. I noticed you had (in 2011) access to cheap holders that were light tight. Is that still an option. Or where might I get the least elegant but functional holders
    Thanks Paul in Northampton, Ma
