    Re: Eastman 33a Missing 5x7 Back

    I did the same thing with a 5x7 Gundlach. It came with no back so I cobbled together a 4x5 back and used that until I finally found an original 5x7.

    The camera may be a Ihagee, the front standard is identical to a Ihagee I have. Look inside the case, there may be a name plate attached close to the rear of the bellows.
