    I'm looking for some 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 Graflex film holders. They old style with the groove down the side, not the new style graphic holders. I believe they were originally made for the Graflex SLR. I need 3 of them.


    This is what the grooves look like:

    I have a pile of them, 2-1/4 x 3-1/4 Type 5 Graphic film holders, wood & metal w/slides. Would 10 bucks, plus shipping be ok.
    If interested get back to me. lcprints@dawe.us

    I meant $10 for all 3, not each.

    Oh, not thinking, do you mean the roll film backs, for the 2 x 3 camera? I have some of those as well.

    I don't think type 5 holders are the right kind, as they are graphic, which is different from graflex. Here are some pictures from the Pacific Rim website illustrating the difference:

    The type on the bottom is the kind I need, notice the grooves.

    The one on the left is the kind of roll holder I'd need. It also has the same grooves as the sheet holders, you can't see them in this picture.

    If you have any of these kinds of backs send me a PM with your info, thanks Al Dawe.

    if you have one of the roll film backs that isn't the right one
    you can masking tape it behind the camera
    i do that all the time with my 4x5 slr and have NO PROBLEMS

    yours is a different camera though so YMMV

    good luck

    You are correct that type 5 do not work. They must have the groove.

    I have six of the two-sided sheet film holders. I got them over a year ago, in original boxes, one holder per box. They look like they have never been used. I would be willing to sell them for $10 each.
