    I bought a 6/4.5 back for the RB67 pro S and I am looking for the mask that goes over the screen.
    This could be a long shot finding one but I could make one through trial and error. Don't want to unless I can't find one.
    Maybe mark on the screen also with fine point sharpie.

    PM me if you have one and you want to make room in the drawer.

    Thanks

    Richard

    I too would like one.

    In the meantime, here is a scan of one. My friend has one, but won't part with it.

    If it makes a difference, I have pdf and tiff versions as well. I don't have the exact dimensions though.

    Hey MattKing
    I think I'll make one. I'll just have to set it up on something I can leave the camera setup for a while to make the viewing measurments. The way it looks, The 2 red lines are good for the 2 1/4 measurment. I'll have to measure the 1 5/8 one.
    The only one I might have trouble with is the horizontal frame when the red lines dissapear when in 6x7 verticle which would be horizontal for 6x4.5.
    Thanks for the offer. Maybe if you can send it by PM, I might could use it.

    Thanks
    Richard

    Send me your email by pm, and I'll email all three versions to you.

    You can then use the "Resize" function in any image editing program to match the size of the mask to real life and print it out on your printer.

    By the way, my friend thinks that the little triangular hole is important if you have a metering finder - I haven't checked.

    Sorry guys, I only have the RZ version. I don't think it's the same. But in principle it's just a flat piece of metal sheet and any other material of the same thickness that won't tear easily should also work. It actually might be useful to make it out of something semi-transparent, such as exposed and semi-developed sheet film. That way you'd be able to see what is just outside the field of view.

    Hey dorff
    That's what I came up with. Like minds I guess. I got it to size using PhotoShop and now I have a template to go by. I have some 4x5 film I can use. That should be thick enough to use. That way the tabs on the screen will hold it in place when I cut it to fit.

    Thanks
