    I just received this along with some other photo stuff from a very good friend who was cleaning out all of the unnecessary stuff that had accumulated over a long period of time. The only problem with this camera is that it doesn't have a back. Does anyone have pictures of the back on the camera, where I can get a back and what type of instant film did it/does it use?.

    Thanks,

    I've seen these on eBay. There is one on now without back, but from the photos, it looks like they are like any Cambo 4x5 backs. I bet 4x5 holders would work too.

    I found out from the person who gave this to me that the shutter needs work and one of the lenses is out of alignment. I'll eventually list this in the classifieds for parts or repair.
