Hello-

After a long hiatus into digital photography I am getting back into film and specifically large format. I recently repaired the sticking shutter on my Crown Graphic (circa 1962) and I am ready to dive back in.

I am in need of some 4x5 film boxes in order to send exposed film in for processing until I can build up a reserve of a few boxes of my own. I want to send in a few test shots to make sure the camera is working properly before I begin shooting more heavily.

I plan on also getting back into processing my own film, at least B&W to start, but I'm a little ways off from that at the moment.

I live in Vermont, USA.

Thank you.

I have some newly made boxes and Iím fairly close. How many would you like?

I just need a couple to get me going until I shoot off a few boxes myself. Thanks.

I also have a big rubber tub filled with dozens of the things, leftovers from when I was working at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard a few years ago. Let me know if you find that you need more, I'll be happy to ship some out. Where in Vermont are you? My mother's family is from the Springfield area.

This is what I use to ship and store exposed film when I am in the field.

Thank you. I have seen those too. It's a nice alternative to the boxes.

I am in Manchester, but my work takes me through Springfield often.
