I have two graflex cases.
I can tell where the camera goes, where the flash handle goes, where the flash reflector goes. I'm putting film holders in spaces where they seem to fit.

There are some areas that I have no clue about.
In the top there is a square area where elastic bands hold something.
In the body of the case there is a flap the snaps shut.

Is there a picture of a loaded up graflex case somewhere?

I'm considering taking my ugliest case and ripping out the compartments and redoing it in wood according to what I want to carry around.

The square area with the straps is for holding the flash reflector removed from the battery tube.

I leave the flash head attached to the reflector and put that on the left side, and use the square area with the straps for a lens hood.

I have two cases, I'm going to reconstruct dividers on one of them to accommodate my Super, my Miniature Speed Graphic and a 35mm camera and other items. I anticipate no flash photography so far.
