    Re: Anyone else need idiot proof dark slides?

    With the price of film today I hate making that mistake. I have written on all of my slides "EXPOSED" and "UNEXPOSED" in big white letters so I know when I put the holder in which side. I've also caught myself putting the unexposed slide in (usually because I'm in a hurry or my mind is somewhere else). This has helped me with that error.

    Most plastic slides are manufactured to make it easy to determine when it's flipped around. Otherwise, just add a little colored dot or label to one side up at the top.

    9x12cm Arca Swiss Holders from Germany by Nokton48, on Flickr

    Over Christmas I received from Germany these 1960's/1970's vintage Arca Swiss film holders 9x12cm. Note the little siiver button in the left corners of the holders; This button must be depressed in, if you are to be able to remove the dark slides. Like inserted into a camera, so very clever. Also these holders came with a delicious assortments of German Candy Bars I will be loading into these holders fresh Ortho+ Ilford, which I can do under the dark red custom safelight in my loading area. Bought the film fresh from PhotoImpex in Germany, I try to buy enough to justify the International shipping and it's worth doing

    Over Christmas we ate about half of the candy
