    I have a Calumet Roll Holder Model C2 to use 120 roll film in a 4X5 camera. I do not have instructions how to load the film. I used to use one with a Graflex 4X5 for the high school annual back in the previous century. I don't remember the details of loading it. Any help out there?

    I've never used this back, but if you have some backing paper from a processed roll, you can experiment with it easily enough without causing any damage. :smile: I keep backing paper around just for this reason. If you don't process your own B&W to get backing paper, a pro lab will probably happily give you a few to play with.

    I managed to figure out how to load my own back this way easily enough. It wasn't too bad.

    Send me a pm and I will scan the instructions for the Calumet Model C-2 and email it to you.
