While looking at Beseler Negative carriers on eBay I stumbled upon this strange negative carrier:

Beseler 8337 45 negative carrier.jpg

It's listed as an 8337.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Beseler-833...aultDomain_0&hash=item2333aa802c#ht_60wt_1366

Anyone know what it's for? What is that round hole for?

BTW, at $175 it seems a bit high.

Thanks!

I got a PM from a member and he said it's for Disc as did Jeff. I have one for my 23C (8049) but it's in the box and I never looked at it. It has the same hole. Mystery solved!

Thanks!

My guess would be the same as Jeff. Disc film. My guess on value would be "Zero" or close to it. I have a Beseler carrier which has the number of H 16 N, that I would quess is for Minox or movie film. however for me its value would be in something I might be able to alter and use for some odd size film. However if anyone wanted to pay me $175 for it, I can ship it world wide for that price. Bill Barber

Movie, Minolta, Yashica? Minox is 9.5mm.

If for Minox, opening will be approximately 8mm x 11mm. If approximately 12mm x 17mm, then 16mm as used in the Minolta and others of the period (Rollei, Yashica, Mamiya).

I'm not sure why I bought my Disc negative holder for my Beseler 23C. I never shot Disc film, and Kodak never made any B&W film for Disc. One thing is for sure: I didn't pay $175 for it. Maybe $15 but no more :smile:
