    Gibellini - 8x10 Holders

    https://www.freestylephoto.biz/39108...r-8x10-Cameras

    Well, these look interesting... curious if anyone will jump and spend the coin. They seem nice but are pretty expensive.

    230 USD for Chamonix, 390 euros for Lotus 8x10's.... and now these.

    I use wooden 8x10 Chamonix holders a lot because of their light weight. The Gibellini ones look great but would be very interested in how much they each weigh. Chamonix new light weight 810 film holders weigh only 435 grams each. My Chamonix holders are several years old and weigh 545 grams each.

    Im gearing up for the Chamonix, want to place one order so need to save a few bucks. 4 holders will be roughly 1,000 with shipping. One time investment.

    My fidelities are fine, no leaks but Ive had to be super super careful about there being zero pressure on darkslides etc. one of my sheets in Paris was ruined with a small leak with pressure somewhere along my daily trips in the streets.

    Agree... especially with Jody Ake dropping his 810 holder from production.

    That was also my thought. No weight spec given.

    I highly recommend doing Jim Galli's business card (or similar) test if one orders theses brand new, and very expensive, holders. They should perfectly match the ground glass depth, or you should return them. I expect that they will, but for that much money I'd want to be sure.

    I decline to have a film holder that costs more than what my car is worth, LOL!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    One of my first cars, back when I was about 17, was a '57 Dodge Desoto for which I pad either $100 or $125. Put about 100K miles on it. Never changed the oil - just kept it full with 15 cent a quart bulk oil which was sold at the gas stations back then (3 gallons of gas for a dollar!). Ditched it when the auto transmission gave out but the motor was still strong.
