I am looking for a 120 film holder for a small RB series B camera. The mounting plate needs to be 4" x 5". I have been unable to find a back with those demensions. If anyone has any direction I would appreciate their input!

Thanks,
George

George, if you have a 2x3 RB Ser. B your dimensions are wrong. I have one with roll holder in my lap, the roll holder's mounting plate is considerably smaller than your 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

George,
go to http://graflex.org/helpboard/viewtopic.php?t=6356&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=15 page 2 and look at the picture in the post by Nesster. The RFH on the right is the type you need, hard to come by.

Must be an odd size

Not an odd size. That's a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 film pack adapter, a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 roll holder will fit where it does. Your problem is finding a 3x4 roll holder that will fit a Graflex back. They exist but aren't common.

Be patient, scan eBay once or twice a week and eventually you'll get one.

you could make an adapter out of baltic birch plywood, black acrylic, ABS, or similar materials for more common Graphic RFH's for 2x3 cameras.
