    Nonsense. He can use one to take pictures of the other with.

    Yes, I think I may keep them both -- at least for the time being. I want to see which I prefer, or if there's any real difference in their uses... I knew I was getting a good deal, but I didn't know how good of a deal until I hit eBay when I got home.

    My wife is already rolling her eyes, wondering how much my savings is going to end up costing her.

    I'm going through the forum now, but I'm trying to figure out about film holders, I only got one yesterday and I know I want more than that... I read somewhere that there are 3 versions of Graflex backs; are there non-OEM brands too?
    You need "GRAPHIC" film holders as opposed to "GRAFLEX" holders. Most film holders are of the "Graphic" variety, regardless of who made them. The "Graflex" holders were made for the old reflex cameras and will not fit most Speed or Crown Graphic cameras.

    You can now legitimately use women's logic to buy yourself something else.

    e.g. Your wife might say "I saved $50 buying these shoes in the sale so I can now spend the $50 I saved on a new bag".

    Using the same logic, you now have $200 - $300 spare to buy another lens, film, film holders, etc.

    Turns out the film holder I have is for film packs -- evidently not what I needed...

    I'll trade you a film holder for that film pack adapter. 2 if it has a film pack to go with it. I'm converting them to wetplate holders.

    I should have some older wooden Graphic holders or more modern Fidelity or Lisco holders, your choice. Is it a #1234 Graphic adapter or model 2?

    If the camera is 4x5 (as opposed to 3.25x4.25), it's a great find. Measure the size of the ground glass back.

    Based on the vintage of the front standard and the newer shutter and what I can see of the metal shade on back, it's probably got the graflok back (which has spring loaded levers built into the back), which is also ideal. If the cloth shutter works, you can shoot about any lens on this, including a magnifying glass in a tp tube, indoors or out.

    Cheapest way to play with it would be paper negatives. For low volume color, a fuji instant film back. For medium volume B&W: several holders in antistatic bags, a darkroom, box of quality film, negative pages, chemicals, enlarger or scanner, etc...
