    Burke and James 4x5 view camera

    I am new to large format photography and recently purchased a nice used burke and james 4x5 metal field camera with a revolving back for portrait and landscape. Does anyone know how to revolve the back on this camera, any help is appreciated.

    Thanks, MIke

    Look on the eccentric camera website (I think...) for the B&J Press camera manual. if not there, a simple google search should turn it up.

    Mike, if your camera is like my B&J 4x5 press camera, look at its back. On the upper left corner towards the back is a serrate projection. Hold this down, and the back should be free to rotate. It might be a bit stiff from not being used for a long time.
