    What kind of back is this and what kind of roll film holder will fit?

    Stoopid Newb question:

    Is this a Graflock back? If not what is it and what type of 6x9 holder will fit it? What are my chances of getting a 6x12 back for it?

    Any advice on what backs to look for would be appreciated as well.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    It does look like a Graflok back. You should be able to remove the back using the chrome levers. Are the black strips sliders? If so, you can move them, and the back should pop out. Or you may have to lift the chrome levers to get the back out. Which camera is it?

    It's a Crown Graphic. If I push on the chrome levers near the center of the back they unhook and the GG and frame comes off.

    Somebody removed the sliding tabs that are meant to hold your roll film back in place, which is a shame.

    You know I was just looking at roll film backs on eBay with the camera sitting in front of me saying "what the hell holds the back in place?" That answers that....

    Is there any chance of finding them or should I just look for another Crown that has them?

    Speed Graphic Graflok back

    These are simple sliders, so having replacements machined shouldn't be hard. However, it is probably easier to get another Speed which has them. Maybe you can find a "parts" Speed, and canabalize that.

    Or find a Calumet/Cambo roll film holder that slips under the GG and doesn't need the sliders.

    I happen to have three for sale. And they are common on Ebay.
