    Cut film for Rollei plate holders

    I am interested in using my Rollei plate holders with cut film in a pinhole camera I plan on building for Pinhole Photography Day. Assuming this is not an entirely foolish idea, what is the best souce of cut film for the holders? I prefer not to cut my own sheets or coat my own plates as I have no experience doing these things and would like to avoid dust, fingerprints, etc.

    Thanks

    That depends on the size of the film. Try Fomafoto or Fotoimpex as these two companies carry cut film in European sizes. I get my 9x12 cut film from Fomafoto.

    Darkslide size is 2 7/8 x 4 1/4 inches. Holder pressureplate is 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 =/- so i assume this is the larget piece of film that is usable.

    Looking at Rollei Manual just now it says 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 (6x9) plates or sheet film "leaving one large margin for technical notes and indexing".

    I bought some Rollei plate holders because I wanted the sheaths for my Voigtlander Avus plate holders.
    My sheaths hold 6.5 x 9cm sheet film.
    I am currently using APX 100 but you should be able to buy Ilford FP4 and ADOX CHS

    I've e-mailed to fomafoto. Will try freestyle too. Fotoimpex does not seem to have an English language version running at present.

    Thanks

    It looks like it's being re-written, it did have 2 or 3 days ago
