    WTB: Focusing screen for Mamiya Press Camera

    Hi--I'm looking for a focusing screen adapter for a Mamiya Press camera (Super 23, Universal, etc). I'd prefer one with the chimney focusing hood, but will consider any of the models in good working condition. Thanks.

    Still looking. I'd like to calibrate my rangefinder and a ground glass would be very helpful.

    Wouldn't a piece of ground glass firm against the film rails work?

    I think it would, but I'd have to go to the trouble of buying (or making) the ground glass, it would be awkward to hold against the rails of the 6x9 back due to the tensioning rollers, and I wouldn't be able to use it for tilts and swings with the Super 23 bellows back. Maybe this is my cue to start making my own ground glass.

    I've always just used good ol' scotch tape and wax paper to calibrate....
