    Hi All,

    Do 6x6 backs exist for the GS-1? If so how hard are they to find?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    I saw a 6x6 back in the Henry's outlet before they moved from downtown Toronto, and I understand that 6x4.5 is also available, so they do exist. How available are they? I can't say, I only ever saw the one 6x6. I think they were asking $120 for it. I should have bought it, if only for the reason that you really should have more than one back with a camera of that type, (would really have saved me on vacation in Sao Paulo when my only GS-1 back quit on me) but I had other priorities at the time.

    Yup, they exist and I have one. :smile: They are very difficult to find. I waited for about a year before one popped up on KEH and I grabbed it immediately.
