    120 question

    I have used the graflex, the mamiya 67, and am sure the graphic 620 will work for adapting polaroids to 120... I wonder if there are any other backs that might work. I had heard once that there was a plastic back coming out of china to fit roll film cameras then I never heard any more about it.

    So do you know of anything else that would work. Attached files

    For those of you who don't know this retro cat, he turns Polaroids inside out, on a budget...realistically inspiring, unlike the microeconomic bubble Polaroid economies currently marketed.

    Shucks im just a humble butcher of cameras... Polaroid actually had the best frames to build on and they are still cheap.

    You can usually find a good metal frame later model polaroid cheap and a retro lens that is off a leaky bellows camera. then match them up.

    the problem is the film back. I build my own for cut film, but the roll film ones cost more thay the rest of the camera build put together. So if you know where to get a really cheap back please let me know.

    I took a better look and realized that I moved that lens to a different frame so The whored up version is on a 250 frame not a 100 frame. Its pretty much the same camera except for the viewfinder.

    I've done one of those. What lens is that on yours?


    EDIT: Oh, I've just read it's a Kodak!! Is that a 127mm? Mine is a Zeiss Anastigmat from 110mm from a Zeiss Nettar which was beyond repair. Attached files

    Im working on a polaroid converted to 2x3 view cam now.

    It swings it tilts it crawls on its belly like a reptile...]

    I have a room full of conversions. Most are to cut file since the film backs are so expensive.

    AS for the kodak, it is something close to 127 I never can figure out what those 116 lenses are. I just bought another one for my new build it is an ansco 116 with torn bellows. Thats how to get a cheap lens.
