    Zebra Film Holders

    Film holders made of Zebra, I hope it's not the animal with the long neck!

    At $25 each, they're not very competitive with the Toyo sheet film holders at Freestyle.

    Don't these have carbon fiber darkslides? That could explain the cost.

    $300 for 2 5x7" holders? Well, however much I would like to feed my camera with some new filmholders, there's no way this fits into my budget.

    The price is what shocked me, all of the sizes had super-sized price tags.

    5x7 holders made of maple,the dark slides were made of carbon fiber! Every two holders with a fabric cover.The price is for two holders!
    Maple and carbon fiber with a fabric cover for $150 each when you purchase two, lets see I'd need about 20 to replace mine, that's only $3000.00, not bad considering I have a "vintage" Kodak 2D.

    OK, for those who are willing to buy a multi-thousand dollar 5x7 they might be just needed accessory, provided they are the same maple finish that the camera has.
