    FS Graflex 6x9 Roll Film Holder for 4x5

    I have a Graflex 6x9 roll film holder in good user condition. It has the lever film advance instead of the wheel and the holder has the needle rollers that are reputed to keep the film flatter. It has worked well for me, but I recently got a medium format slider for my Wista VX and will use the slider for all medium format in the future, so this is excess to my needs. It will fit on any camera with a Graflock or International back.

    I would like to get $100 plus shipping for this very handy attachment.

    question do you know if they make a 6x7 version of this holder?

    I accidentally bought a 6x7 one once, meaning to get a 6x9, so yes, they do. I got mine on eBay.

    Hmm why do you prefer the 6x9? I've found that shooting such a nonstandard frame size means spending extra on custom framing, but I'm always open to learning I'm wrong

    6x9 has the same dimensions as 35mm.

    As above, 6x9 is just a big 35mm. Not sure what is available in the USA, but there is fairly cheap custom framing in the UK. I like pretty much all frame sizes, from square to panoramic, but at that point I was after 6x9.

    They also made a 6x6cm version. Just depends on the aspect ratio you prefer. I like 6x9 best of the three.

    When it comes to film (as a general rule) you can't have too much real estate.

    Yes, and you can always crop but never add.

    6 x 9 provides a moderate amount of "shift" capability if you are shooting it, but printing to an 8x10 aspect ratio.
