    I want to try out this camera that a fellow photographer from around home has but no holder.

    Need a film holder to try this puppy out. Or prehaps a polaroid back and get film prepacked in paper . Also can we still get instant film in 4x5

    Thanks Dan

    Thanks Compur. I found this pic of a new vue for sale on ebay with holder in place. This holder is for roll film "scratchs head" how would you focus between shots with roll film?

    Any whoo if any 4x5 holder will work than I think I should get a 545 polaroid
    back and shoot a little instant film then load the back with the 4x5 stuff that comes pre packaged to work in the polaroid back but is not instant.

    What you think

    Thanks again DeadEye

    I presume the holder has a dark slide which can be inserted to allow
    removal of the holder for focusing. That's how they usually work
    unless the camera is equipped with a rangefinder like the Graflex
    press cameras.
