          Nice 4x5 holders. Work nicely with both 4x5s that I have (a Toyo and a Sinar). Easy to load and use.

          A little sticky at first, then fine.

            Comments about Toyo-View 4x5 Sheet Film Holders (2 Pack):

            After a few sheets of film, these seen quite smooth. An experienced classmate did misload one sheet incorrectly into one and the slide couldn't be replaced after the exposure had been made. I don't really know what happened there, but be careful until you get used to them. But, really, this is a good quality product.

                  No one has a problem with these that I know of, you have to be pretty precise when sliding the cover back in but if it wasn't a tight fit it would defeat it's purpose. Security hooks the hold the slides down don't move unless you want them to. Good product.

                          I've had a variety of 4x5 film holders over the years, however, these Toyo holders work the best IMO. A few points to be made about the holders over others would include; slightly larger darkslide locking wires, as well as they are extended slightly up & longer for ease of use. Additionally, the holders and darkslides are well mated, free in overall sliding movement.

                                These are very well built and sturdy. The seem to be better than the Fidelity that I have and some other brand I have owned before. The Fidelity uses a fibrous tape at the bottom which you fold away when loading film which is not very well built and since it is a tape it catches hair, dirt, etc.. Also, Fidelity has come apart before on me. The Toyo film holder does not have poorly designed parts and is extremely solid. My only complaint would be the dark slide seem a thinner plastic than most (I am not quiet sure what it is made of). It feels a little too thin and I am being very carful with it, because I am afraid it will bend or break. Not too big of a deal, because the rest is built so well I over look it.

                                Comments about Toyo-View 4x5 Sheet Film Holders (2 Pack):

                                I'm new to large format and had absolutely no clue how to go about loading the sheet film into the Toyo-View sheet film holder... all I knew was that it had to be done in the dark :) Since there aren't any instructions included (I suppose Toyo thinks it's obvious, though not as obvious if you're new to this) I looked on the internet for advice and finally figured it out.

                                It's actually very easy to use once you get the knack of it. I prefer to orient the sheet film holder so the dark slide pulls out towards me. While still in the light, I pull out both dark slides only a fraction (just less than a third), so they align to the point where the film sliding area starts flaring out, to get slightly wider (or where the rails start.) This way the film slots in easily when you open the flap at the bottom, by holding it in place with your thumb. Make sure the emulsion side of the film faces the lens, by feeling how the notches are located on the film. The notch information is usually on the box of sheet film, and if not the emulsion side is the one that sticks to your lips when they are slightly wet :)

                                For good, detailed instructions on how to load film check out Paul Butzi's blog.

                                    Even though these holders are all or mostly plastic, including the dark slide, they still seem really well made. They'll likely be more durable than some of the other brands. Of course, they're more expensive, too. I'd give them more stars if they provided such high quality at the same price as the competing brands.

                                    Other than that, they have all the features you'd want: a place to make a note on each side of the holder, raised patterns on the tab of the dark slide so that you can tell which side is which in the dark, etc, etc.

                                    They're no more or less easy to load with film than the two or three other brands I use...
