    I'd love to have some new 5x7 holders, especially if they're high quality and reasonably priced.

    There still seem to be a large number of used 5x7 holders available, so the pricing would need to be pretty competitive. On the other hand, I'll second the suggestion for some 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 holders which almost never show up in any form.

    problem with full plate holders is deciding which camera to make holders for.
    I have a couple of folmer & schwing full plate rb cycle graphics, and when looking for holders I discovered that every manufacturer had their own size. Took a while to find the right ones.

    Right after posting I saw a mention that Ebony is listing a full plate camera in their catalog -see
    http://theonlinephotographer.blogspot.com/
    I wonder if they have a source for holders for their camera?

    Knowing Ebony, their holders would make Toyo and Linhof-branded holders seem cheap. I would be interested to hear what they're doing as far as the film holder issue is concerned.

    That Ebony uses holders made by Lotus. They're based on Lotus' 8x10 holder design, i.e. T dimension and lock rib location per the 8x10 standard, but length and width reduced to match the smaller film.

    I'd be interested in Fotoman holders, both 5x7 and 6.5x8.5, if they were indistinguishable from Toyo in terms of build quality and tolerances, but would hope for one aspect to be different -- smell. See this thread:

    http://www.largeformatphotography.in...g+film+holders

    I recently purchased a couple of new 4x5 Toyo holders to find out whether anything changed and it hasn't. They've been airing out (in the garage) for three months now. The stench is somewhat diminished, but has quite a way to go before it's acceptable. Despite that, I committed to participate in the Toyo 5x7 special order with hope that sufficient time would make them tolerable to my olfactory system.

    If Fotoman were to manufacture 6.5x8.5 holders, I'd encourage it to pattern them after those Lotus made for the new Ebony SV Wholeplate camera.

    Very interested.
    I have a great deal of difficulty in finding anything in 5x7 here in northern Ontario.

    Strangely enough I believe i have enough 5x7" holders for the time being.

    But I could use a few more 13x18cm holders - at least until Kodak decides to make the same films available in 5x7" that I can now get in 13x18cm.

    But I fear it's going to be a long wait, and that the "equalisation" will be in the opposite direction.
