just a message/reminder to you who believe that most filmholders are made in the same factory:
The outside width of 4x5" Fidelity Elite and Riteway filmholders differs 0.065mm.
[CODE]Fidelity Elite = 12.07 cm
Riteway = 12.005 cm[/CODE]
That's a small allowable margin, you say?
Not to me. I own a bunch of Fidelity holders and only one Riteway and decided to use the Riteway to model a new back for my camera. If it ever got damaged, I would not whine about it.
I must have been more precise, in shaping the film holder slot, compared to the back I built last summer because it will not allow the Fidelity holders to slip in
I first thoutht that it might have been due to the cold (freezing -6C) while making pictures at the coast, but when checking the holders, the reason was obvious.
On the other hand, I must say I'm very happy with the 13x18cm back. It functions as it should.
