    There is also still some films available in 13x18cm and not in 5x7", especially colour films. Just take a look at Kodak's offerings...

    Ole is absolutely correct, in fact there are MORE color films available in 13x18 than in 5x7. See the comprehensive (at least as of January 2006) table attached.

    Hi Tony
    Half Plate film called NP is made in Germany. It is available in the UK from www.retrophotographic.com. I don't know if that's of use to you in Oz.
    Many people describe half plate film holders as 5x7 so you have to look carefully to what it says on them. If on eBay ask the vendor what the wording is on the holder.
    Good luck

    According to Ilford's product availability sheet, HP5+ is available in 13x18cm "whilst stock lasts".

    Tony, Foma offers Fomapan 100 in that exact size (at least here in the Czech Republic, in their webshop, so you could ask your film source for these). And the price is 10% lower than that of 13x18cm...

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the tips on film sources. I might just try a box of FOMA and NP so I can get some use from these film holders before they are retired.

    As it turns out 2 of the eight holders I got were genuine 5x7 so I don't feel totally ripped off. Maybe the seller was as naive as me after all.
