I have a Pacemaker Speed in 3x4. I'm interested in getting a rollfilm back in either 6x7 or 6x9. Are any available. What should I look for and what should I stay away from? I just aquired this camera and I would like to shoot 120 roll film as much as possible. Thank you.

Watch eBay and save your money while you wait. They are few and rarely come up.

Oh, and if you think rollbacks are hard to find, wait till you hunt for sheet film!

Scroll down to rollfilm backs, you'll find many answers there.

Um, er, ah, moderator, here comes a taboo subject.

If you're willing to live with an Adapt-A-Roll 620 (follow the link for accessories you were directed to by an earlier response), I have a 3x4 one that will sooner or later be offered *******. Not sure when I'll get around to it, and per graflex.org's rules am NOT offering it here or now. If your camera has a spring (Graphic) back, one of these is your best bet. Mine is not the only one in the universe.

If your camera has a Graflok back, you ought to be able to find a 3x4 shell with a 6x7 or 6x9 Graflex carrier. Just be patient, go to camera flea markets, and check eBay from time to time.

Cheers,

Dan

So. Is there a consensus as to which 120 roll film backs are "better"? I have a 4x5 Crown. I have seen both 2x series and RH-XX series backs ******* on eBay, and I'd like to know which one is the better bet to start bidding on. I figure that if I get a 6x9 or 7 then I can always crop down to square if I have to, so I'll start looking at the backs in this order: 6x9, 6x7, 6x6. Any suggestions?

I have yet to find any commercial lab willing to machine prints from 6x9, they just crop them to 6x7. So try to find an RH10 or 20 (220)

the hitch here is that the 3x4 doesn't have the pin rollers to keep the film flat.

Ok then, what kind of film does this use? It looks like it takes 120/220 but I'm not sure. Is it worth bidding on?

It looks like a Calumet C-2. 120 film. I don't know enough about 'em to suggest bidding or not bidding.

Cheers,

Dan
