I recently "inherited" a Graflex Speed Graphic 4x5 from the estate of a long time photographer friend who passed away in June at the age of 94. The camera has a Schneider-Kreuznach Symmar f:5.6/150 lens in a Synchro-Compur T, B, 1-400 shutter. The camera also has a focal plane shutter. Along with the camera I got 10 Riteway double sided film holders.

I think I've figured out all the functions of the camera and now I'm anxious to to try it out. I was thinking of using transparency film, probably Velvia or Velvia 100 because those are my favorites for 35mm use. After I exposed the film how/where do I get it processed? How do I deliver the film to the processor: in the film holders or transfer the film to a light tight envelope or box?
