    PICTURE FRAMES! Egads. LOL

    Depending on the type, and condition I have seen price tags on them from $25 to $150. I have no idea of an exact value.

    I may have a few stored away. If dpurdy doesn't have what you need then LMK so I can start digging though boxes.

    Okay, I'll search through my boxes of holders. If you don't hear from me within two days then remind me. My memory is virtually gone.

    Not sure. Will that fit in a standard 8x10 camera back? By looking at the photos it appears that is a single sided holder that is loaded from the back?

    That's a fascinating contraption. How thick is it? Do the stacking format frames come out? If so, what a clever idea. I have a holder with that one-sided design, but just for 8x10. There's a black metal spring that pushes the plate for tight, flat contact, like in yours, but I don't think it would work with the smaller formats. Very curious.

    Has there ever been a thread comparing all the different designs of plate holders?

    vintagepics: You might try Large Format Photography Forum if you don't have any luck buying a holder or two here.

    If something like that fits a standard 8x10 film back, then that is what im looking for. I am using it for my calotype photography. I use the glass plates to help keep my paper nice and flat for exposure. Im actually shooting through the plate. I was looking for 8x10. I didn't know holders such as that came in variable sizes. Something like that would be even better.

    Sorted through my last two boxes of holders and I'm sorry... no luck here. I found eight glass plate holders but they'e not 8x10. They're not full plate either but something in between.
