I have recently aquired a 1945 Speedgraphic Anniversery model and would like to use the 120/220 film back but I've heard this camera does not accept this accry. Can I purchase a seperate back for any other modles to work. Thanks, Jeff

A Graflok back for a 4x5 Pacemaker Graphic will fit your Anny. Not sure who has any, you might try Stephen Shuart.

Selling your Anny and buying a Pacemaker with a Graflok may be more economical than buying a back, look into doing that.

Possibly less expensive alternatives include getting a 4x5 Adapt-A-Roll 620 (read about 'em on this site) or getting a 6x7 or (rarer) 6x9 Calumet C2 roll holder.

Good luck,

Dan

You'll also find quite a few discussions of the Adapt-a-roll and Calumet C2 roll holders around here.

I don't know how much you're into roll film, but as I've said in previous discussions:

I bought a 23 roll holder when I got my first Speed. Saw how thw focus panel had to come off and decided it wasn't for me. I then bought a C2 holder. Works very nice, but by then I decided roll film wasn't for me. I'm still stuck on Polaroid film, have no problems and even enjoy sheet film, but roll film, just don't see the sense...

My opinion, for what it's worth , keep what you've got, use sheet film and/or Polaroid, and if you really want to use roll film, buy a C2...

Thank you both for your input. I believe I'll heed your advice and stick with sheet film, after all that's why I bought it in the first place. Couldn't see the forest for the trees. I'm sure I'll be comming up with more questions. Thanks, Jeff
