    Because it looks just like the 3x4 I had. Lenses can be changed.

    It's hard to tell in a picture. Lenses get swapped around a lot on these, although it was common to have a slightly longer than normal lens mounted, I have a 4x5 that came with a "5x7" tessar on it, but that lens was a good bit older than the body. If you are familiar with both size cameras you can tell just by picking it up but the best way to tell is to measure the back or a holder. 3x4 is a nice size for hand holding, very easy to manage.

    I'm back at the store. Sign on the door says "back in 10 minutes". I'm going to ask to take the back off and look at the curtain and also measure the opening.

    Thanks for all your help. More pics to come.

    Ask that it be demonstrated by the seller to you. If seller is unwilling, make a low-ball offer.

    Ok, it's a 3x4. I took the back off and looked at it. He said I was welcome to "click" it, but I chose not to. Here are some more photos. It looks like it was stored with the mirror up.

    I pass on 3x4's. If I knew that it was easy to adapt/obtain a roll film back for one I'd give them more serious consideration.

    I was just going to say that it looks like Efke is the only one producing 3.25x4.25 film according to Freestyles website.

    The lens says its a 4x5, what makes y'all believe this is a 3x4?
    I know you have already figured it out but...

    I have a 3x4 RB Series B and it's lens says 4x5.
    I have also seen plenty of 4x5 Graflex SLRs that have a 5x7 lens.
    Maybe it was common practice to put a lens one size up on these cameras.

    if you want to shoot 120 film
    you can take a 3x4 singer / graflex &c roll film holder
    that was made for a 3x4 camera and tape it on the back
    it might do the trick for you.
    i have a graflex 23 taped on the back of my 4x5
    that i taped on there and i shoot wide open all the time
    never had focus issues ...

    have fun !
    john
