    I'm looking for a Mamiya RB67 220 back. It doesn't have to work and I'm not willing to spend much for it. I have a crazy idea to convert it for wetplate use. Let me know what you have and how much. Thanks.

    I can't believe the prices they are asking on Ebay for these. When was the last time 220 film was made?

    I think I have one with a counter that isn't working.

    I am, however, in a different country and a long way away from you.

    If you don't find one closer, you can have my problem back for the cost of postage.

    Surely there are lots of these out there sitting idle in drawers. Seems like most of the kits I see include a 120 and a 220 back.

    Good luck on your search, and do keep us posted on this project. Sounds like a wild idea. Interested to see what you come up with!

    I have a non-functioning (ie the lock won't move) RZ67 220 back. Guessing that won't help you. I'm close to you though, so I thought I'd let you know.
