View Full Version : Rittreck View Camera Repair

2-Jan-2017, 10:10
I purchased a Rittreck View 5x7 with 4x5 back several months ago from a forum member. The bellows were in pretty sad shape (I knew this when I bought it), so I replaced them immediately. I haven't had many chances to get out and photograph with the camera until just recently. One thing I'm having issues with is that the upper rail (as it is called in the RV manual) is very difficult to extend. When I try to move the knob that is supposed to extend the rail, the knob is very stiff and the rail barely moves.

Does anyone have any advice for how I can correct this issue? I really love the camera, but this is pretty annoying and inconvenient.
