    Back came off camera

    The back came off my camera, a Calumet 4x5 and I am not sure hoe=w to put it back on. Appears the hooks are not connected to the spring???

    Google is your friend.

    This one is also a good instruction manual for any view camera with front and back swings and front and back rise and fall:

    Which model Calumet?
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.
