    So the MSA this month is "super cheap cameras and film" so one of the things I did was snag some x-ray film from eBay 8x10, 11x14, 14x17 and 24x30(to cut down to 20x24 of course). It was so cheap I had to grab one of each.

    Anyway for the Monthly Shooting Assignment I'm just going to mount a lens I already own in a cardboard box, but I would prefer to have a real holder to insert in it because otherwise I can only change the film once PER DAY and will lock up my lens in the meantime as I don't have a darkroom and can only remove the sheet of film at night time. So having a holder would help.

    Eventually I do plan to get an actual camera in larger formats.

    The point of this post? I'm looking for a cheap holder, I don't care if it's crappy or not, has light leaks, etc, so long as it holds any of those sizes (preferably 8x10 or 11x14 since 1 that's probably all I can afford for "cheap" LF/ULF and 2 the lenses I have won't cover any bigger.

    Anyway of course I'm open to a holder that is in good condition, but it has to be CHEAP so I figure crappy ones are all that I can look forward to.

    Thanks guys!

    I know right! Haha but there's got to be some rotted out old wooden one with a bent dark slide and a missing trap felt that no one wants to repair that I could snag... I hope...

    Id look for a big changing bag mine would be tight for a 8x10 but it is only medium sized?

    It is plenty big enough for 1000 foot cine cans and bulk loaders you can lose things in it real easy...

    But you will need 5222 in larger sizes now.

    IF I went large Id staple gun Velcro to window surround and hardboard sheet blanket hung over door...

    I have a nice Harrison changing bag, I could fit a 20x24 dark slide inside it I think, and still have enough room (barely) to change the film out. (With the box of film ON TOP of the dark slide hah! But that's to give you an idea, not worried about the size of the tent for that, but it won't fit a whole cardboard camera inside....

    sorry my cbag would be big enough for a 8x10 field camera to fit into opened up (but not at triple extension. ) You can get larger sizes.

    How does $10 a 8x10 holder grab you (plus shipping - padded mailer should be cheap). I have a stack of dirty, disgusting and grungy ones. Lots of dust, some rust, sticking slides,worn tape, etc. I was going to dump them as a lot on eBay but I could pick out the best of the pile for you. I can post a photo or two tonight.
