All,
Can you use XL spacers on a mini speed? My baby speed has a Graflok back on it and would like to use spacers for macro.
Thx

Nice idea but I'm afraid it won't work.

See this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Graflex-XL-Macro-Spacers-Set/124247275478

They aren't held to the body or to each other by the Graflok back's sliders, they have pins that plug in. Normal Graflok backs don't have the holes that the pins go into.

2x3 Graphics have enough extension to go to 1:1 with a 100 +/- mm lens, the normal lens for 2x3. If you need more magnification, use a shorter lens.
