Is there an adapter for using cut film in holders?

2-1/4 x 3-1/4 "B" Camera has Rotating Back with the "1 sided" Graflok style lock bars.

Film Holders are just a bit wider than roll film back or grafmatic and don't have a slot for the locking bars.

Suggestions?

what you have is a The Graflex Back

usually found on the "Graflex" SLR cameras. It features separate removable focusing panel, but is not a desirable feature as Graflex back cut film holders have a grove that hold them in place & and are often difficult to obtain.

but any 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 Grafmatic should work!!

AND there are some (only have seen one) roll film holder that work on both Graflex AND Graflok
BUT ONLY ON 2 1/4 x 3 1/4

on 4x5 Graflex Back are 1/4" wider then other Graphic backs!!

BUT 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 Graflex AND Graflok are the same whith!!

Hi:
Thanks for the reply. If I understanding correctly there is a "Graflex" lock and "Graflok" lock and the Graflex has only one moving bar and the whole thing is a bit more narrow than the Graflok?

I have a grafmatic, a film pack adapter and a roll film holder "22 Graflex" that all fit the camera.

I also have a roll film holder "23 Graphic" that won't fit - it has a ridge where the "23 Graflex" has a groove!

Apparently if I want to shoot sheet film in holders I need to find some with grooves in them or figure out how to modify "regular" holders!!!

Thanks again for the info, much appreciated.
