Well finallly, my Graphic 22 4 X 5 roll film back has arrived, it is in new condition, with only one small problem??? It don't fit the camera, I a graphic view with a Graflok back, but the outside dimentions of the roll film back are too large, I thought perhaps it could have been put in th wrong box somewhere over the years, but it says right on it in embosed letter Graphic 4 X 5, but when I measure it, it comes out 5 X 6.75 which leads me to believe it is a 5 X 7 Back?

Anybody able to throw any light on this one, I am getting frustrated enough to go back to my medium format!

Thanks for any help

It's a 4X5 for sure. Removing the removeable part of the Graflok from a super speed and measuring the opening in the back 4 3/4 X 6 5/32 (not edge of camera); same measurement on top rangefinder pacemaker speed 4 3/4 X 6 7/32. 6 3/4 would go beyond edge of cameras by 1/4 to 3/16, with nothing blocking.

For reference: http://www.graflex.org/speed-graphic/features.html#GraflokBack
