    in search of light seals

    Currently I am working on a Mamiya 645 plain, and I was just about to buy new light seals from camerasealkits.com but they have their ebay accounts closed!

    So, do you know any other store that sells Mamiya m645 (1000s) seals?
    They must send the items to Europe (Slovenia)...

    Thank you very much!

    I couldn't resist:

    They're easiest to find when they're hauled out on the beach. They get much darker when their fur is wet.

    jon goodman - interslice on ebay. He is in teaxas, USA. Send him a message if he does not list your camera.

    He is very flexible, and the light seal kits get shipped as letter rate envelopes all over the world.
    my real name, imagine that.

    The baby seals are very light-white, in fact.
    They're also very light-not nearly as heavy as adult seals.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Jon has sworn off eBay last I checked - he can be reached at JGood21967@aol.com. As I understand it he is trying to set up his own, free-standing web business.

    I've no connection - just a happy customer

    When I need seals, I email Jon at that AOL address. I believe he has a day job, which sometimes takes up lots of his time, so be patient. He sells an excellent product with great detailed instructions, at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.

    There was also a guy on eBay called camerasealkitsandmore who sold them but something happened to him recently. He suddenly stopped sending out his products and didn't reply to emails.

    It's not difficult to cut your own seals. I use a metal ruler and a rotary blade cutter. The foam is available from www.micro-tools.com and other sources. A few sheets in various thicknesses will make a whole lot of seals.

    I second what BobD said, their sheets are about 8$ and you can do a lot of cameras with them.
