Fidelity Elite and De Luxe 4 X 5 Film Holders- Difference? : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

What is the difference between the Elite and Deluxe Fidelity holders? I understand that the septum in one of these is metal, is that true? Which other 4 X 5 cut film holders have metal septums? Thank you.

My couple of 'Elites' are loaded up at the moment, so I can't check, but the Deluxe has an aluminium septum, held in place with an iffy plastic clip that has a tendency to warp.
My recent experience with Fidelity holders tells me to buy Toyos in future.
