Glossary Terms

A dark slide is a thin box, designed to hold sheet film so that it can loaded into a camera (typically a view camera) without exposing the film to light. A sliding cover can be opened whilst in the camera to allow the film to be exposed to the lens, and then replaced for film removal. Sometimes this cover is itself referred to as a dark slide.
