A year ago I bought this lovely Compact Graflex off Ebay and it looks like it is brand new. Everything works as it should, including the auxilary shutter. The only drawback is the film size: 3 1/4 x 5 1/2. I don't follow Graflex on Ebay all the time so I am curious if these film holders show up ever? Also, does the Compact Graflex require slotted holders like the other SLRs (I am at work -- away from the camera, so I can't verify this).

It would be fun to cut up a few 5x7 sheets of film and at least use it from time to time.

You can get custom holders made.

They won't be cheap I bet but then you'll save watch Ebay forever. I also wonder if that format is for plates and not film?

It's what's known as postcard size. They do show up on the 'bay but rarely. A call to some of the larger dealers in old equipment may turn up something.

Are you sure about that size?

I thought I saw, while browsing around, what you were looking for. Then when I went searching again (forgot where I was...), all I could find was 3.5 x 5.5 holders...

So, either I did see your 3 1/4 x 5 1/2 somewhere on the net, or I just remembered the wrong size... Sorry 'bout that

Wait a minute... Check your PM! I was right, and wrong That size does exist...
