    1. 4x5 film, Portra 160 NC or Fuji NPS 160: when sold in Europe, are the sizes d ifferent? 2. Holders, I use Toyo, are the sizes different in Europe? 3. In particular in the Netherlands, between Amsterdam and Eindhoven, where can I buy the film mentioned under 1. ? (Q for Andrea Milano?) If the answer to 2. is YES, can I buy US sizes in the NL?

    Although I don't use sheet film myself, I might have some addresses for you. <ol> A very good professional shop is Foto Klein in Rotterdam (just a few yards from Central Station): ; I am sure they can help you. Capi Lux is a high end professional shop, both in Amsterdam and Rotterdam; can't find their addresses at the moment. They are somewhere on internet.

    Dear Marcus, yes you can buy any "american" film size in Europe, we use to have two sizes the metric and the "american-english" sizes, they were always sold next to one another(9x12cm-4"x5" or 18x24cm-8"x10") these days you would only be able to find "american-english" sizes, so don't worry and just go and get them. I agree with the previous contributor but I wouldn't choose "Foto Klein" and I'd rather go to the following shops.

    Fimex (Amsterdam, Purmerend, Eindhoven) a very convenient shop, well stocked but do not espect too much in terms of advice, great prices and special offers (at times...) Fimex Amsterdam, Parnassusweg 206, 020-6767569. Camex Eindhoven, Hooghuisstr. 29 040-2449081 Fimex Professional Nijverheidsweg 22-24 Purmerend. Tel. 0299-432777. Fax, 0299-429921.
