    Anyone have experience fixing a Rittreck View?

    I just picked up a Rittreck View 4x5 to fix up and modify. Most of it seems pretty straightforward and easy to disassemble/reassemble, but if any of you have worked on one and have tips, I'd like to appreciate it. I'm also not sure yet how the bellows attach to the rear standard, can't see any screws or anything else securing them.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Hi David. I've just acquired a Rittreck View as well. The only advice, (and I'm a complete newby here), I can give is that someone has suggested to me that neoprene strips are god for replacing the old, worn light seals on my backs. I'm going to have to replace the bellows too at some stage.

    Cheers

    Since you are in Japan, you should be able to find an original 5x7 back for it. It is a lot of camera to lug around for 4x5. Send me your email and I'll send you an instruction manual.
