    Used but not abused Horseman 6x8 roll film back. Get 8 exposures from 120 film.

    I only take PayPal, shipping not included, sales to US, UK and Canada only. Shipping is from Calgary AB, Canada postal code T3A 5V4. Go to the Canada Post website to find out the shipping cost. I have no idea what the merchandise weights, check it out yourself on the web please. I will not reply to requests for shipping costs. You get 3 days to inspect. If you want to return merchandise it will be at your expense and must be received by me in the same condition it was sent to you in to obtain refund. These are my conditions, if you don't like them don't contact me. Sorry to be harsh, but in the long run it saves on miscommunication.

    I was not aware they made a 6x8 back. If so, that is very neat, but I thought that you were supposed to get nine pix from 6x8. Are you sure it is not a 6x9 back? It looks like one, based on the picture of the film gate.

    Would the back fit on a 4x5 speed graphic.

    Yep; if it has a Graflok back (or a spring back that has been semi-permanently modified to accept only roll film holders, i.e. glass removed). Horesman also made them to fit 2x3 Graflok backs, but this one is for 4x5.

    Will the roll film back be in the same focal plane as the focus screen?

    yes it sits on the same plane as the film. I measured the opening and unless I screwed up it was maybe between 8 and 9 cm's.

    Sounds like 6x9 to me. Usually the stated dimensions for a format to not exactly match the actual dimensions of the image. Is the "bargain" condition rating due solely to cosmetics, or are there any functional issues?

    Strictly cosmetics. For a "real" photographer it wouldn't matter one bit.

    I have one of these in 6x12, really good backs, and much lighter than the Linhof ones!
