    I have obtained these two holders from a friend. As you all have explained, they fit well and so does every other holder I've tried.

    The problem is that these are old wooden graphic holders. One contained a very old developed negative which, when I slide into any of the 4 slots, buckles up slightly in the center. I am wondering if it is the negative which is causing the problem or do the holders just fail at providing overall flatness?

    I have the same camera as you/same back, and I haven't had a problem with any of my newer or older film holders (Riteway, Lisco, Fidelity, Grafmatic) other than "inexpert use" :-) If they are in good nick, you'll be fine!

    It's possible for wooden filmholders to become warped over time. Make some test shots with them in the sunlight, and if they don't have light leaks, you should be okay. Wooden holders are lighter than plastic, so some people prefer them.

    It's possible they're the metric variety. You're SURE they're 4x5? The outer dimensions are the same but the film sizes are not.
