does anybody know how to adapt old wooden back for photo glass to sheet film. Are sheet film inserts or adaptors anywhere available?
I have a "Reisekamera" (view) in 13x18 and one in 18x24.
I would be very glad for any advice!!!

There are occasionally sheet film inserts on ebay.de, but mostly for 9x12cm. The larger sizes are rare. They look like this: http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3873221680&ssPageName=ADME:B:WN:DE:1 (http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3873221680&ssPageName=ADME:B:WN:DE:1)

I also have an 18x24cm "Reisekamera", and there I use a sheet of glass behind the film to hold it in place. So far this has worked without any problem, but I intend to find a lighter replacement before I carry it very far.
