I've just had a closer look at the Graflex 3A I picked up 2 1/2 years ago and now I'm regretting getting the camera. #1 there are no infinity stops. #2 When I try to set the shutter, there is no "Bar D' on lever "H" exposing "I" for instantaneous exposure. The list goes on. Am I making too much of this or have I been royally S****ed. Any advice or help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Doug

I cannot help if yours is missing parts, best to look for another not missing the same things as yours.

45SS: Thanks for the images and text. I just found out that there is nothing missing by looking at the images you supplied. I also found out how to change Lever H from I to T by putting downward pressure on the wheel like disc and turning it to either T or I. Boy do I feel stupid !!!!.

Thank you for all your help.

Yes the Graflex SLR controls changed over the years but their function did not.

The infinity stop on the referenced/pictured camera is a block of brass with a slot cut into it that allows it to slide onto the rail with the outside longer than the inside and a #1 machine screw in the lower outside edge to hold the stop in place.

This web page may be of help also,

45PSS: Thanks for all of the information and links. If I sent this camera to you, what would you charge to have a look at it?.
