Willi, if you look around on this site -- I find it easiest to start from the site map -- you'll find discussions of kits for replacing a spring back's ground glass and viewing hood with a normal ordinary Graflex roll holder and of the Adapt-A-Roll 620.

The disadvantage of installing a normal roll holder is that it limits the user to just one lens, usually a normal lens, that the RF has been set up for. In other words, focusing on the ground glass and then attaching the back to take a picture is not practical.

I have several AARs, am happy with them. Their disadvantage is that they MUST take up on a 620 spool. After I shoot a roll, I respool the exposed film on a 120 spool before sending it to the lab. This to conserve 620 spools, which are scarce.

AAR 620s turn up on eBay from time to time. Normal regular Graflex-made roll holders are much common. Note than the ebay vendor wyverndude has been selling AAR 620s converted to take up on a 120 spool.

Good luck,

Dan

p.s. Your english is good enough. Much, much better than my german. Ich war ein jahr in deutschland, aber ich kann nicht deutsch.

Along with what Dan said, you might also look for a Suydam roll holder. Not as heavy-duty or as refined as the AAR and Graflex roll holders, but they'll do the job. They also have that 'vintage' look I like so much on press cameras of any format.

Any modern sheet film holders fit your camera. If you buy older ones, you will be safe if they are marked "graphic". They show up on eBay all the time or you should be able to find them used at large shops that deal in used equipment. New ones are available but pricey. No modifications necessary.

Hi...Here are cut film holders like the ones you need to shoot cut film: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=15247&item=3849076985&rd=1

Any 2-1/4"X3-1/4" or 6X9cm holder will work except the ones that are GRAFLEX holders. GRAPHIC are OK....Lisco are ok.

And this is a roll film holder that will work with your spring back.; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=29973&item=3848395867&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW

This one is a little over-priced as it has been converted to use 120 film. One that is an original 620 film model will accept 120 film if you use 620 film take-up spools. Fred
