    Hello,
    I'm getting into 4x5 color shooting with a box of Velvia 100F. Unfortunately though, I don't have an empty box to ship the ones I shoot to be processed. Does anyone have boxes they could sell/spare? I'm located in Philadelphia, PA 19104 for shipping.

    that's a common issueand people seem to hang on to these boxes once they have them.the only way to get them is to buy more film or ask your lab to give you one for returns. you may need more tthan you thinkif you use the zone system.if you are handy enough.you could make some from card board.

    I threw a bunch of these away not too long ago. I was in cleaning mode and not thinking... I regretted it the next day. From now on I will save them and offer them up here or on the lff to people in your situation.

    If you can't find anything soon, PM me your address. I can spare 1 right now. (I save a few for myself to load exposed film into when I'm on the road.)
