Instead, save up enough to buy what you want with cash. Life is a lot easier that way.
    That's the best answer on here. But you can already tell the poster knows what's what.

    I'm not a Pro so it's pretty much all playing around and experimenting to me. I call it a hobby. My wife and daughter call it an addiction.

    Anyway the only "true" 6 x9 in my collection is the Nettar and even it is short, however it does have the 1.5 ratio..
    Nothing Graflex, Inc and predecessors did was easy or simple.

    In the case of roll holders, the first 2x3ers were marked "23" Graflex (fit Graflex and Graflok backs) on the back or "23" Graphic (fit Graflok backs). And then "23" Graflex roll holders were made to fit only Graflex backs. Later "23" Graphic roll holders' shells have pin rollers like RH series roll holders and knob wind film carriages (inserts). RH series roll holders' shells have pin rollers and their inserts have lever wind. Inserts interchange freely between shells. I've seen "23" Graphic shells with lever wind inserts, RH shells with knob wind inserts. There's considerable room for confusion.

    The Graphic 23 roll holder that Charles reported on is a late one.

    Charles, we all love you for the kind and helpful person you are. It would be nice if you checked your posts for sanity, though.

    The bulk of a 4"x5" camera will limit the use and convenience of a 120 camera.

    I use a 4"x5" camera for 4"x5" film and I use a 120 camera for 120 film.
    naaah

    i use a graflex d (4x5 ) with a graphic 23 back all the time
    i have an ancient rolleicord but i find it easier to use
    the 4x5 for 120 film and a sweet lens named laverne

    YMMV
    ask me how ..

    Well, I got it, , it comes with an Ektar 105 f3.7, and a Schneider angulon 6.8 65mm . She even mysteriously found the 23" back for me, so I have 2 backs (6x6 6x8(give or take)) now. To top it off, looks like I can use this synchro compur to fix the one in my rolleiflex if i wanted to. I'm happy with it, I can't stop shifting, tilting and staring at the ground glass. Looks like it's going to be fun. Thank you everyone for their input.

    The camera operating instructions (but not the Graflok back):
    http://www.cameraeccentric.com/html/info/graflex_5.html
    The Graflok back operating instructions are in this guidebook:
    http://www.cameraeccentric.com/html/info/graflex_4.html
    The roll film holders, knob wind very similar:
    http://www.cameraeccentric.com/html/...raflex_13.html
    The shutters if needed:
    http://www.cameraeccentric.com/html/...raflex_12.html
    or
    http://www.cameraeccentric.com/html/...raflex_11.html


    What is wrong with the shutter in the Rolleiflex?

    And I have a very nice Grafmatic 2x3 holder for it if you are ever so inclined. Straight film holders in it. Very clean.

    Nice if you really get into little pieces of film (2 1/4 x 3 1/4)
