    Kodak Master View 8x10 (KMV) reducing back for 4x5, compatibility

    Hey Everyone! Quick question. I'm looking to get a 4x5 reducing back for my Kodak Master View 8x10. I don't want to make one. Matter a fact I received one that was homemade with the camera and it's quite sloppy. I heard that Burke and James 4x5 reducing backs *sometimes* work with the KMV? Can someone who has tried this please let me know how it went? Am I just basically looking for a back with the attachment method that uses the 4 pins that coincide with the small latches on the camera body? Any B&J (or any other) models that are a sure fit?

    Many thanks gang

    My Burke & James reducing back works fine with my 8X10 KMV. Its the grey model which I presume is the B&J Grover.

    Doug thank you. It seems that is the exact one I should try and track down then.

    I appreciate it!

    I no longer have a KMV

    Deardorff and B&J may vary, Ansco and many others vary with variation within production

    I suggest you make what you have fit

    Post good pictures of your problem

    Some B&J backs don’t fit. I never found one that did despite others saying it would. I ended up making my own.
