    A German LF photographer currently in Göteborg and heading for Oslo, then back to Sweden, has lost all his film holders.

    Can anyone help with getting him a few? I haven't found any likely shops (Expo-Service couldn't help) which has them in stock. Contact me, and I'll "coordinate the rescue effort". :smile:

    We just talking bout your standard double sided 4x5" that you slide into the back of a camera? If so I might be able to help, but I wouldnt be able to afford shipping myself for some kind of urgent delivery overseas. Kinda odd wouldnt find any shops that have basic 4x5 holders, when my store got a ton of them, maybe its different over there.

    Hopefully someone possibly in europe answers the cries.

    Thanks for the offers of help, but...

    He needs them now, right where he is or at least very close. It turns out that there seems to be no shop in Norway that has (yes, the ordinary Lisco/Fidelity) 4x5" holders in stock, and the situation seems to be no better in Gothenburg.

    I would loan him mine, but there's no way of getting them to him today or early tomorrow except catching a late flight to Oslo, meeting him there, and then flying home again. And that might just be a tad too expensive...

    If he is in Oslo, what about all the crazy Danes? It is just a ferry ride from Jutland, and or maybe Copenhagen. I've only done the ferry from Northern Jutland. Would Copenhagen have a shop for 4x5 film holders?
