    Light seal for rollfilm backs

    Does anybody know where to get the black cotton used as light seal witch are used in backs where you use a dark slide. In this case it is a Linhof Rollex 6x9 back. Normal light seal foam does not work.

    A store selling textiles and sewing materials might have what you are looking for.

    Jon Goodman sells foam light-seal kits, I believe.

    For German cameras, try black yarn. I've used that in the past with prewar Contax cameras.

    Otherwise, I agree with checking fabric stores.

    Jon Goodman sells under the name interslice on eBay. I don't know if he'd have what you want, but you could always try contacting him.

    I bought a large seal kit from him about two years ago and besides an assortment of foam items, it included two different adhesive backed felt (or some sort of non-foam) sheets. It would be worth contacting him.

    Thank you very much......I will look for Jon Goodman and see if he has the special light seal. It is a stripe of approx. 5 x 80mm. So it is not just yarn which can be used to seal the top of a camera etc.

    I have looked at Jon Goodman but it seems to me that he only sells different types of foam which does nok work in my case. The dark slide will damage it very quickly. It is textile....but not just plain textile. I am quite sure it is cotton.......made the same way as a carpet. Difficult to explain.......

    When you hit the fabric store look for 1/4" velvet ribbon, Many older cameras used it for light seals. Many people mistake crushed velvet for felt.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.
