    Glass plate holder needed for fotokor 1C

    Hey guys,

    Well its my first post here and im quite a newbie :P

    Im a photography student in Singapore and recently got my hands onto a Fotokor 1C which arrived to my house today and its a 9 x 12cm camera, and there arnt any plate holders that came with it in the box though...

    Does anyone know where to get a plate holder for this camera ?
    Went online to search but didt seem to get much i wanted.

    Here are some images that i took of the camera !






    Many thanks in advance for your help !

    There was no standard fit pre WWII, so once you know what German ones fit look on Ebay, there's almost always a few, they came in a small case in 3's usually

    This is a Russian camera so that's the best place to look they were once very common. Then you need film inserts

    Because the holders were ment for glass negatives, so you would need an adaptor to fit film. Ebay.de is your friend. Try a search for blechkassetten (or blech kassetten) that`s what they are called in german.
