    No, they are black finish.

    Not available from Amazon.com in the US. But I'll contact Amazon.com-UK and see what the options are. Thank you.

    One of my camera doesn't have that slot but it does have a windows where the film cassette is so I can tell which film is loaded. I guess newer cameras use this type of windows instead of the slot. Older cameras still have a dial that you can set to indicate which film is loaded.

    Though those dials only indicated b&w or colour and neg or transparency. At least those models I got.

    I bulk roll a lot. So I write in small font what I am loading onto a thin piece of masking tape with a sharpie permanent marker.

    The tape gets a small fold under one end to make it easier to pull it off.

    The tape initally gets adhered to the top of the film storage can.

    When the film is loaded to the camera I peel the tape off the can lid and either stick it on the back of the camera, or the side of the pentaprism.
    my real name, imagine that.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    If someone here will make a bunch of them and sell them to us, I would buy one.

    If you always have the same strap on the body (assuming you use a strap), you could clip something onto it - or color-code the straps, lens-cap, etc.

    I do really like Peltigera's accessories shoe idea.

    Depending on your model camera, it may have been offered at some point, and you may be able to pick up a used back with the holder.

    Which camera does the OP have? I have a couple of cameras without the box end flap holder but they both have a window where I can see the film cassette inside and know what kind of film is loaded.
