    You know, one of my Centuries, the Horseman works perfectly on. Another, it takes some finagling. I've heard about this "mod" but I've had trouble finding more info, because "Century" and "Graphic" are such common words that Google searches are filled with junk. Can you enlighten me about the mod? I actually took a rasp to the backside of my Horseman where the Graflok slides were hitting the edge from the one Century. This fixed the issue somewhat and is not something that would change the placement of the film. The Century in question has already been cut down and heavily modded to fit wider lenses so is already very far from "stock:"

    As for adapting the Horseman film backs to fit on the miniature Crown. Century should be the same.

    Facing the back of the camera, the baffle (or lip) on left side kept the Horseman back from fully seating itself on the back of my miniature Crown. I carefully, filed that side down until the back would fully seat. Actually, I gave it a small clearance to be safe.

    The second problem is that the slides would not lock the Horseman back in place. I removed the slides and carefully cut a notch in the tabs that were causing the problem.

    This has been done on my miniature Crown and two Mamiya Press bodies with Graflok backs.

    Thanks! It appears my cameras are mostly modified or okay as-is. My Horseman back fully seats in without hitting the left "lip." The slides are the only issue, and with the one problem slide I actually took some pliers and bent it up slightly to give it a bit more clearance.

    I imagine, after many decades of use, that many Centuries/Crowns/Speeds have been modded to fit the more modern holders that have come up. I love the Horseman holder and would like to get another one. For shooting color, I have a 6x7 Singer 220 back I use, as I have about 30 rolls of Velvia 220 in the freezer.

    What an eye brother Scott!

    I do wish you shared an occasional large format image as you use to do and equally impressive.It seems you've given shooting bigger film cameras (?) but either way I dig your work.

    Beautifully done, Ken. As always. ;-)

    Re: safe haven for tiny formats

    I was just thinking about a photo I took years ago and decided to pull it up again. This was during a time I couldn't shoot film as most all my gear was packed up to move. I am still sad I didn't get this image on film.

    This was deep in a forest on the Florida panhandle. A felled tree somewhere in the forest opened up the canopy like a spotlight, and caused one tree to have its leaves turn color very early. As soon as I saw this tree way off in the woods as I was driving past with a friend, I had to stop and venture into the woods to make a photograph. Right place, right time.

    Nikon D800E, 14-24mm f/2.8:



    I could never wring a good b&w conversion from this file but maybe I'll give it another go.

    Also I think this image loses its impact at such a small size. Oh well.
