5x4 DDS

Hello everyone,

My first post here and can't wait to try large format photography.

I've managed to get myself a big 210mm lens, a 7x5 Norma with 5x4 back, processing chemistry, film, negative & direct positive paper, cyanotype sheets, and a roll film back.

I'm looking for my first two 5x4 double dark slides.

Based in SW London and can collect if needed if close.

Regards,
Vinay

Hi Vinay

Welcome, 5x4 DDS are relatively inexpensive and relaively easy to find for under £10 each, I usually pay around £7 for them at my local CameraFair but the last one was in Januaryb2020, the next is the end of this month. There's a good one at Beaconsfield but I've not been to it, many of the stall holders are the same.

Just be aware that Ebay prices are unrealistic, a good camera shop likePeter Walnes typically sells then for around £21 for 3 DDS. If you want 7x5 then buy from the US.

Thanks Ian! I'd come across flyers for the fairs earlier but didn't know there's one in June. Not sure if I'll be able to visit that weekend though.
I'll email Peter Walnes to enquire. WOW! Glad I didn't buy from eBay listings earlier.
Thank you, again!

Cheers, Vinay
