    OK, worn out makes sense. I use newer style holders. Also, the original vulcanize Graflex camera cases transport the holders with the slide side up. Even the older Graflex SLR cases did this, as does my Calumet case. I wonder if there is a way to eliminate the gap, perhaps a piece of tape under the hinge part?

    Twice recently I had removed a dark slide, taken the photograph, and then when I reinserted the dark slide it would not go in all the way. The camera goes into the changing bag. I remove the film holder, press the flap down and the dark slide goes in. This got old the first time. This time I noted which film holder was the offender. If it does it again, out it goes!

    Just a thought. Could it be the newer films are thinner. The older films, a bit thicker, did not slip under? I have not used my 4x5 for a while and the only film I have is some Kodak Tri-X and some Agfa Pan.

    In any case, good to know about this.
