Durst items get pretty expensive and many times certain items are hard to find. But the laborator 1200 is a popular model so it shouldn't be that hard. I have a durst pro 4x5 which was an off shoot of the ce1000. The durst pro i have was only produced for 3 or so years according to durst vs the 10 for the ce1000 so it's pretty tricky to find any info or parts for me. Just finding the correct negative carriers took me forever. Plus the naming scheme is pretty confusing.
