Comments about Toyo-View 8x10 Sheet Film Holder:

This is a perfectly good 8x10 sheet film holder - does the job, unfortunately these have become way too expensive for what they are.

    Comments about Toyo-View 8x10 Sheet Film Holder:

    I purchased 5 of these holders from B&H to use with my Toyo 810G and MII camera. The film slides in and out smoothly and doesn't get hung-up like in my Fidelity Elites which I also purchased 5 new. This is a superbly manufactured product which, with proper care, will last a lifetime and more. The only cons are that they weigh a tad more than the Fidelity and are a tad (~3/16") longer. But those are minor "cons." The only real con is the cost. But you get what you pay for - at least in this instance.

    Comments about Toyo-View 8x10 Sheet Film Holder:

    like it's 4x5 , it is smooth and easy to load and unload, this feels tougher and more durable than other flimsy plastic 8x10 Sheet Film Holder

    Comments about Toyo-View 8x10 Sheet Film Holder:

    They seem to be a little better made than the "ordinary" holder. They claim the dark slide works more smoothly, but it really doesn't, as far as I can tell. The dark slide seems to be made of a more durable material than other holders. They're probably the best commercially made holder, but at a higher price.
