    John- I've not often found 5x7 holders that didn't obviously need WORK for under $20-25 each. If I've got to buy three of those to get a keeper, I'm at the price of a new Shen Hao, and I don't have unlimited storage space for all the junk/spare parts ones. 5x7 film is expensive enough I don't want to have to waste any on holders I don't know I can trust. More to the point, I'm often shooting people, people whose schedules don't allow me to call them back to shoot again at will, so re-shooting something lost to a light leak is not a realistic option.

    Not true -- completely different holders made by two separate companies.

    I've just finished checking out some evaluation samples of the 5x7 Chamonix holders. IMHO they're even nicer than my Lotus 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 holders!

    I've managed to buy a few good 5x7 holders from both Ebay and KEH-- definitely keep your eye on the KEH pages and jump when they appear, the return policy is quite reasonable as well, so it is worth a shot.

    Having said that, once I get the final "spousal approval" for a 5x7/4x5 Canham Wood Field I will probably invest in some of the new Shen Hao holders to go with it. I spent nearly an hour with Keith Canham at PhotoPlus and I'm really looking forward to having a more portable 5x7.

    Boy, it just took a few negatives from the B&J I bought from MPEX on a whim to fall in love with 5x7 -- especially for portraits.

    Wouldn't that being a matter of testing your equipment before using it for important asignments. Somebody somewhere gave the advise to number your holders thus keeping track of their perfomance.

    A couple of us in this thread do. They're lighter then I expected.

    I'm waiting for Richard Ritter's new camera design. I understand it is extremely light and will offer interchangeable backs for 4x5, 5x7, 8x10 and probably any back in between. This camera is based on the same rail design he uses for his ULF cameras.

    Curt-

    Yes, I have them. Read further back in this thread, and do a search on APUG for my review of them. In short, they're excellent.
