    Foam for camera seals

    Hi,
    Does anyone know of a good source to find 2mm foam I could use to make light seals for my Wista 45d 4x5 camera? I've looked around for replacement seals for the camera, but can't seem to find any....

    Hi! I use self adhesive velvet, but you might try this from ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2mm-8-x-5.../202049634413?

    Art and craft stores sell squares of foam that can be used effectively for light seals. One brand name is “Foamies”. Not sure where on planet Earth you are located but if in US check out your local Joanne.

    Heck it would be tough to find even in US cities with populations the size of Saipan's. You should be able to order online from one of the mentioned places, although shipping is a problem these days even on the mainland
