    How to attach fresnel lens in holder to ground glass on Sinar F.

    Hi

    I did create a post in the Wanted section as I think I need a part or component for my Sinar.

    I thought I had a fresnel with no holder, when I went back to check my photos, I do have a holder but no means of attaching the lens to the ground glass.

    See below.

    Anyone know what I am missing, do I just need a holder with the clips as seen here:

    Or is there some adapter I need, or have I got a lens which won't fit my Sinar (although I thought they were pretty much backwards compatible).
    Everything should be tried once, except incest and folk dancing.

    That frame snapped right on a Norma. Don't know about later models.

    OK. So I had a look at the Sinar's at my local University (they are slightly more modern than mine).

    As per the image here:

    There is a small pin/clip at the base of the GG which allows users to snap the fresnel into place. Mine does not have this clip, so I still don't know how to attach.
