    Re: Arca-Swiss 5x7 platform restart

    I was intrigued to read in the B&H description of the Arca Swiss 5x7 :

    "The Arca-Swiss 5x7 is a high quality professional's tool that is ideal for use with 5x7 film (a host of B&W options remain), medium format film backs (up to 6x17), and digital backs with interfaces such as the Silvestri 5x7 Sliding Back Adapter."

    What 6x17 medium format roll film backs exist that are compatible with this camera?

    Maybe Rod can clarify whether it has the retaining sliders that would make it compatible with the Canham 6x17 roll film back as well as the Chinese 6x17 roll holders that use a similar mounting plate.

    Thanks for the heads up. What's the intended front format frame?

    I don't doubt that the front frame will be the 141mm series.

    But if I'm not mistaken, B&H images show the camera with the 171mm format frame.

    Re: Arca-Swiss 5x7 platform restart

    My 8x10 and 4x5 configurations are 171, and I'd be interested in adding 5x7, but not if it's only available with a front frame that's inconsistent with the rest of my camera.

    The front frame is the standard 141 series we use with the 4x5, and 8x10 formats in F line

    So, the B&H photos are incorrect?

    I have an Asian reduction adapter from 171mm down to 110mm that fits just fine in the bellows side of my Metric, 171mm rear format frame. (My Asian reduction adapter might be Luland, but I'm not sure.)

    As one example, EBay currently has a Luland reduction adapter from 171mm down to 141mm. So, the possibility exists of getting the Arca 5x7 conversion kit, and then using the reduction adapter to attach the 141mm end (of the conversion kit) to the bellows side of your 171mm front standard. (This assumes that your 171mm front standard isn't from the Oschwald era cameras.)

    I have an Arca-Swiss F-Line. My view of this is that Arca-Swiss either wants to sell me the 5x7 components for my camera or it doesn't. If the latter, I have a 5x7 Linhof Kardan Bi.

    It's an option.
