    Well, it's UNT (University of North Texas) now and no longer North Texas State University--though as a interesting footnote in the history of the school, they did leave the radio station KNTU instead of changing the call sign

    Yes, the 1 O'Clock is still going strong--I catch every concert I can of the 1-3 O'Clock lab bands since I've got friends in the 2 and 3 (though this year they may be in the 1).

    Apparantly DaYi has come out with a newer version of their 6x17 back, more can be read about it here: www.focus-dayi.com
    Let's see what I've got in the magic trash can for Mateo!

    Dave--I don't see why it wouldn't work with your Crown, as long as it has a Graflok back.

    DaYi 617 back - first impressions

    Just got the back - paid $ 519 ship'd....from the day I bought it off ebay to today when it was delivered - it took 11 days....Packing was great - completely encased in styrofoam....First impression: this thing is very low tech and almost crude in its build/finish... there are still some metal shavings inside the thing ! BUT - it looks like it will work !

    The cheap black yarn used as a light seal was not in the best shape in one area - so I patched with my own light seal kit...the focusing unit - again crude, looks like it will work well in the field with its a long bellows for viewing the ground glass.... I will shoot this beast in the next few days and let you all know how it goes..

    da ji rollfilm back

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Film-Back-Hold...QQcmdZViewItem

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/6x17-ROLL-film...ayphotohosting

    Are these things any good? I like the idea of having the opportunity to shoot different aspect ratios of rollfilm with a technika I'm going to buy. This apparently covers a few all in one back. I want to be able to shoot 6x6 and was thinking of cropping back from the 6x7 rollex back the guy is including with the camera. Any info would be nice. Whether anybody has used one. I like the idea of being able to shoot 6x17 panoramics too as cameras specifically designed for shooting that ratio are rediculous expensive.

    I've made several posts on it. Do a search on "DaYi" and you should turn up a few threads.

    The Caoersi 6x17 cameras are very reasonable prices, lower than Fotoman because you buy direct from the manufacturers. I looked at the options including the backs you link to before buying a Gaoersi.

    The 6x12 back looks a good option and is a reasonable price.

    I've only noticed the numbers on the backing paper now after fishing it out of the waste paper bin. They seems to be for 6x45, 6x6 and 6x9 right. What about 6x12 and 6x17? I guess you just count up every so many numbers right? Coming across these backs has made me even more interested in the tech v now. I never knew I'd be able to experiment so much with it.

    For 6x17 it's 2, 5, 8, 11. I never use my Gaoersi for 6x15 or 6x12 although it's easy to switch mid roll.

    How does a 6x17 back fit on a 4x5 technika when 17cm is longer than 5 inches?
