Hi, I accidentally dropped my camera's back on the ground and it seems like the glass was damaged. I've only noticed now, that it has a clear glass over the ground glass. Do all view cameras use that clear glass? I've never seen it before. Can I use the camera without it?
And if that clear glass is a must, is it just simple glass or some special glass only made for lf cameras? Cause if it's simple, I could just go to the nearest frame shop and ask them to cut the same peace of glass. The ground glass doesn't look like it's damaged, it's only that protective glass.
Sorry for my english, it's not my first language. If it's hard to understand what I mean, I can take a picture of that part of the camera.
