    I bought 20 x 24 film holders, bellows and camera back from Filip Habert in Prague. He occasionally offers film holders on ebay. The craftsmanship is decent (and great for the price) but these are not as beautifully made (or expensive) as more established camera makers. Just make sure he insures the shipping and guarantees a shipping date.


    As I understand it, when you get to equipment of this ULF size, you have to make sure the film holders are suitable for your camera back.

    I bought two 20 x 24 film holders, bellows and rear standard on ebay from Filip Habert in Prague. Reasonable quality for a reasonable price. I have been having good luck with his equipment. He might be a source of film holders for you. However, my understanding is that when you get to camera sizes of this size, there may be less standardization in exact sizes. It is important to make sure the film holders match the specification of the rear standard.

    Make sure there is a guaranteed delivery date and the shipping is insured.

    you might look into next year's ilford special order if you can't find
    available film stock at the moment. they do special orders of all sizes
    of ULF and smaller format films cut to special dimensions.
    i would also go to the large format forum (largeformatphotography.info )
    there are people who also use 20x24 there and they might
    offer you other suggestions for finding film that size.

    good luck !
