Looks like they are making some cool toys but I can't read Japanese...

the 5x7 back for 4x5 technikas looks really interesting!

That is pretty cool, and about $550 by my calculation.

I wasn't sure if it fits directly on a Technika or if it fits on any Graflok back. I suspect it's Graflok, since it says "Linhof, you install in the hose man," and mentions "Toyo, etc." which I think means that it also fits Horseman, Toyo and others.

Darn it, my hose isn't Graflock compatible, so I'm out of luck.

I'm guessing this back would have the same vignetting issues as the 6x17 Graflok backs, so only a limited range of lenses would be usable.

How do you find these things?

The Google translation seems ok for basic specs and such. "Aori" is a Japanese term for "(camera) movements," and "classified by tax" should be "tax not included."

The 5x7 adapter attaches to the international (Graflok) back on cameras such as Linhof, Horseman, Toyo, etc. It does say there are restrictions to the lens that can be used.

It was a reference on an eBay acution for one of their 4x5 cameras.
