    I always store with the dark slides in. It helps keep the right dark slide with the right holder.
    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I never knew such an incredibly simple subject could become complicated. Why on earth would anyone remove the slides except for cleaning? I don't get it.

    No. It should be left ajar so the dishes inside don't get moldy due to moisture build-up.

    I rarely use the duplex film holders with my field 4x5. I have a collection of grafmatics for that job and they have indicators to tell film position and slide locks I can engage for the loaded ones. They also have a nice large area on the back for notes. The duplexes are for the oddball sheets Im trying out and for the studio NX I use around the house on occasion, those are usually empty and always store slides in.

    I usually store them with the slides in especially when there’s film in them.
