I've gone over the old posted questions, and know that a 65mm lens field of view on a Century Graphic requires a #4 mask for the tubular viewfinder that came with the Century (the short version). My question is: my Century has the long version of the finder, and I was wondering if it shows the same field of view for the same mask as the short finder. Either this is the case, or I must first find a short tubular finder for my Century. Any help would be appreciated. BTW, I have a roll-film back which produces (ostensibly) 6x9 negatives (more like 56x82, though). Thanks.

Huh? The 65 has a wider angle of view than
the tubular finder, masking the finder makes
things worse. Midwest Photo Exchange has a pile of lenses which attach to the finder and
give more-or-less the same angle of view as a 65 on 2x3 or a 90 on 4x5.

about 56x82 passing for 6x9, that's pretty normal. the graflex 6x9 roll backs give 56x78. 56x82 is almost exactly 2 1/4 x 3 1/4.
