    Where could I get some 5x7 ground glass online?

    I just got a Kodak 2d 5x7 camera, which I love but I would like to replace the ground glass. I emailed canham regarding their gg but no response yet. Any other resources? Thanks

    Make sure to measure EXACT size. I ordered some and found my GG frames was slightly smaller than the nominal dimensions. Steve makes nice glass!

    Hi Ken! Did you use his gg for your 2d? That's what I want to do as well. Is there a special measurement I need to give him for the 2d 5x7? I find that is the only thing I need to fix on my camera.

    Thanks again,

    Gabriel

    On a side note Ken, I finally got my camara and I wanted to thank you for your positive comments for the camera. Not only do I love it but my wife loves it as well. She thinks it's beautiful and said I should get a wooden tripod for it. I am now waiting for the lens boards and my next purchase will be the betterscanning custom frame for 4x5,5x7 for my Epson V700.

    Thanks,

    Gabriel
