I've been out of photography for some time. I've a Graphic View II and a 90mm Angulon ( not Super Angulon). Could someone recommend a couple of good, preferably cheap sources for offset lens boards? Would I do just as well to cobble up something myself? I realize the limitations of coverage and movements with this combo. I'm just looking to keep the release cable out of the shot for now!

Well, I know I got one from ebay and they do show up there now and then. I may have gotten another from http://www.pacificrimcamera.com
They usually have a decent selection of Graphic boards. Their's other dealers also which can be found on the "where can I get" area of this site.

Nice to see someone using a GVII. They don't seem as popular as the Speeds or Crowns. Maybe not as portable, but sure are fun to use...

Take a look at Dagor77s other toys he has up there. Most won't fit a GV II but, while he may not have the most toys, he always has the best.

Nice! And what the heck is that on the back? Looks like a standard back all the way at the end, but what's between it and the camera?

Fun to use, and pretty too!

looks like a sliding back that would give two up images on one sheet of 4x5

It's a sliding back that... oh, okay, Les.

The guy I bought the GVII from threw it in gratis. It's kinda neat--I had intended to use it for portraits on Polaroid, but the mechanics of the 545 holder cause the holder to push the back open a tad when switching from left to right, so one image is always fogged. Doesn't happen with a regular film holder, however.



And yes, that's a Cokin filter holder and hood.

I used to work in Catalog studios in Chicago and used "spliter backs" like this on Deardorfs. Would occassionaly use a piece of precision cardboard at the film plain and flop the holder around, but I can say I've ever seen anything like this!

Hey ya'll, here's that splitter back.





I went out on the front porch and did a couple of quick digitals, but for some reason Graflex.Org was acting up, more than likely because my ISP is having problems. And then that darned kitten got interested in classic camera accessories!

Well, talk about coincidence, and luck... I just recently 'won' an auction for a Graflok back. Needed a spare & hood and got this for a very reasonable amount after losing a half dozens times...
Guess what? It came with a sliding back attached! Nice piece of equipment. And after a bit of lubrication, cleanup and paint touch-up, it seems perfectly workable.
So now I'm wondering what the problem is with the Polaroid holder since I like to shoot Polaroids.
Did you leave the paper 'slide' out when you slid the back? Which holder are you using, 545, 545i, pro? Did you ever figure a way around the fogging problem? Anyone else have any ideas?
I guess I'll just have to try using mine and see what happens? The paint should be dry by now
