I sadly got 5 holder 10x~15mm x 4mm thickness for 9x12 no markings or brands perfect condition, I guess there is someone producing them now, they are like new :/.
If only they could fit my Voigtländer Arvus which takes the filmholders with 2mm thickness on the edges! (why not trade them ;))
Anyone got more info in general?
I also found this catalog, German tho:
That's absolutely marvellous, thanks!

I'm also intrigued to see there was an adapter to allow 9x12 plateholders and rollfilm backs to go on to 4x5 international backs. I could have done with one of them recently. Probably like hen's teeth now, though.
I'm going to sell my Voigtlander Avus in 9x12 format with 3 film holders. The film holders are the kind that have a swinging door inside, you open and slip the sheet film in then close that door before closing the film holder itself. I found that swinging door to be strange but good actually since it fits a lot more exactly and snugly than your average 4x5 film holder, there is zero chance for the film to slide around inside. Anyone have an idea what is a fair price to ask for it? Everything works on the camera, there are no light leaks in the bellows and they are supple actually. Two of the film holders were slightly bent around the edge of the film sheath to the point that there were two very slight light leaks, but.. the metal is easy to bend and I think I have the light leak solved, but haven't run any more film through it to make sure. The negative quality is outstanding on this camera! I have the original camera case but it's really beat up on the lid area. I was thinking of an asking price of $200 but want some objective opinion(s).
I'd say check competed auctions on Ebay. If you can wait I'd avoid selling now. I've noticed some very low prices on large format equipment. I won't tell you what I paid for my Maximar 9x12's but it was a lot less then $200. And these included filmholders with film inserts. Some of the holders were like new. Mine were good Ebay deals that are not everyday prices. I think you will be lucky to get $100 in todays market.
I have a 9x12 with no markings that could give me a manufacturer. It has a 135 Xenar so it looks good :)
It came with four holders and I bought four extra which fit (it must be the most common type). What I don't have is film sheaths. Has anyone found a source for those? The great auction site seems empty from what I can tell.
I really want to use this camera on those days when the Kiev 88CM feels too high-tech :)
Also, as a side-note, the four holders from the big site had sheet film in them but with no sheath. I guess someone tried using them like that and gave up. But I have film to test my idea of developing adapter for the AP tank when I get around to it.
