I have just purchased the dark slide keeper for my Hasselblad. [...] I purchased one to try and now will place an order for three more. I use to place the slide in my pocket that cut me or ripped my pocket,and was hard to retrieve. Now it is placed neatly and securely on the back of the magazine where it belongs. I wish I had invented it. There are no down sides to this product. Ray

The only thing missing on old backs

Does just what it says - a function so useful Hasselblad incorporated it into their late-model backs. It's especially useful when you're out in the field.

Does just what it says - a function so useful Hasselblad incorporated it into their late-model backs. It's especially useful when you're out in the field.

There are some QA issues, though, which is why I can't give 5 stars. My keeper only had double-backed tape on one side, so I had to supply my own. And the two halves look like they're beginning to come apart due to insufficient glue, so it will probably need to be re-glued soon.

    Comments about Lindahl Dark Slide Keeper:

    This is a nice way to keep the dark slide from getting bent. It's too bad Hasselblad did not just incorporate this feature into their film holders.

      Comments about Lindahl Dark Slide Keeper:

      Like everyone else has stated, it is not a Lindahl (if that actually matters). It's made by Norman. It does come in 2 pieces so you'll have to super glue it or it will pop apart. Also, had to purchase industrial strength 2-way tape to adhere it the back. The tape that is included is a joke. I've had mine attached for almost a week and it hasn't disintegrated yet.

      Comments about Lindahl Dark Slide Keeper:

      As other reviewers have noted, these have two big issues, they only include one piece of double sided tape and the two halves fall apart. When the Lindhal dark slide keepers first came out these were not issues. I have been using some without problems for 20 years. The tape problem I solved by cutting the tape in half lengthwise and the other problem with a few drops of cyanoacrylate. Now, they work as intended and I have had no problems.

          Comments about Lindahl Dark Slide Keeper:

          First of all, it's not from Lindahl but from another manufacturer. Second, it comes with no adhesive, so you have to go out and buy adhesive strips for another five bucks and hope it will last. Third, the first time I finally got to use it, when I gently inserted the slide, the holder popped apart (it's manufactured as two flat plastic pieces snapped together). Now I was in a jam, since I couldn't remove the half that was still attached to the Hasselblad and return it for a refund. I glued the thing back together but we'll see how long that lasts.

            I took one star away because I had to add a piece of two-sided tape to make it more secure but overall they work perfectly on my A12 backs.

                        My holder came without adhesive tapes so I can't use it out of the box.
                        Need to find a two-sided adhesive tape of proper thickness and after that you couldn't be sure of glue properties on it.

                          This holder is made of 2 pieces. I had to give it 3 stars because the 2 pieces did not stay together. I super glued it and have not had any problems yet.

                          I have two other backs that I bought used and they had this holder already on. Those holders have worked perfectly and do not show signs of coming apart. The problem I had seems like an isolated one and it's an easy fix, but annoying just the same.

                              As any Hassy owner knows, one unpleasant quirk in the 'blad system is what to do with the slide holders while you are actually shooting. This keeper promises to solve the problem. I just put them on my filmbacks, so I do not have experience of how well the glue is going to hold over time, but for now, they seem to be well designed--and very helpful.
