    Always wondered what all that fuss about loosing or not finding the dark slide was about. I must have found a viable solution without realising it. This is what I do:

    Store the darkslide together with your other backs. As long as you don't need another back you will not need the slide. If you need another back, the slide will be in the same spot.

    Could you not attach it to the camera with a tether.

    Interestingly, my Bronica ECTL had such a feature built in to the film backs. I recently acquired an ETRs system (which I love, by the way) but was surprised to find that it does not. Progress, I guess.

    That is not a solution.

    I switch backs to go from black & white to color and back to black & white. Or I will move a back from my 503 to my 509 SWC so that all the photographs are on afew rolls of film rather than mixed with other shoots over many rolls. Before I kept the dark slides on the back of the magazine, the dark slides would disappear in the camera bag no matter how disciplined I was about putting them in the same place.

    Not a solution for some. It will work for others.

    I always toss the slide in the bag (where the things i will be holding in my hands all come from), and never lost a slide.

    (That last bit is a lie. I did lose a slide: my spare one. Haven't needed it for so long that i forgot where i put it. So when i remembered i had one, i had to turn my bags inside out to see where it was hiding.)

    Where do you keep your lens caps? And how often do you lose those?

    Right front pants pocket. But lens caps do not bend. Ever put a metal dark slide in your pocket? How did that work for you?

    You don't want it loose. Keep a tight grip on it or you could lose it!

    I throw my lens caps in the bag as well. Haven't lost one of them either.

    "Just lose the Dark Slide of the force, allow yourself to feel the anger that flows deep within you"

    The RB67 has a holder on the side of the camera that the dark slide goes into when not in use for the back being used, does your camera not have that?
