Dear Sirs,
excuse my ignorance, but here in Europe Graflex RB Cameras are rare, I just know them from ebay. Reading the description on this site didnt bring me the answer. I found out this babies were built in different sizes with different filmsizes, from 2x3 to 5x7, but I dont know about body sizes, for me in ebay a 4x5 shows the same size as a 5x7, is this an error?


Thanks and Kind Regards

Martin

Body stlyes are the same for a given model but are porprotional to their film/format size. A 2x3 is smaller in physical size than a 4x5 which is smaller than a 5x7.

Thanks for Info.
Are the older ones also usable or only the D series?
Thanks and Kind Regards

1910 RB Auto and a 1922 RB series B both very functional and useable, both 4x5's.
The condition of the camera will determine its usefullness.

Graflex film holders are rare but Graflex bag magazines are common. Graflex holders have a slot along both sides and a valley for the light trap, Graphic and Graflok holders have flat sides or small notches and two bars for the light trap and of course Graflex Corp. made all three types.
