    If you're attaching it correctly and it's just a tiny bit too tight, it's the sort of problem I'd probably solve with a little judicious sanding, but get a second opinion from someone who actually has seen the camera first.

    Are you saying that I should try putting it in upside down?



    Just for giggles, I tried the 6x12 in my Horseman and it fit perfectly. That tells me that it's got to be the back on the Shen. Especially considering the snugness of some of my other sheet film holders. So David, your suggestion of some judicious sanding might be in order. But I'd be interested to know if anyone else has had to do that on their Shens. Maybe I just got a bad back??

    No not up side down. Everything has a certain tolerance. The back opening is supposed to be a certain size +/- a little. The film holder is allowed to be a certain size +/- a little. I'm wondering if the back opening is at the - side of things and the holder at the + side.

    I see what you mean - thanks for clarifying.

    Okay I found this. Supposedly a 4x5 film holder is supposed to be 4.765" wide. Measure your roll film holder and see if it's more then that. Measure the back opening to see if it's less then that.

    Interesting Nick... I'll have measure mine to see what I've got.

    One thing that occured to me... My film holder says "DaYi" even though when I ordered it, it was referred to a Shen-Hao. I wonder if that could be the problem?? I've never heard of the DaYi; I just assumed it was made by the same folks.

    My 6x17 back is made by Da Yi. The brands I've seen are Da Yi, Kang Tai, and Shen-Hao.

    I don't know what the situation is with Dayi versus Shen Hao. Maybe it's two companies. Maybe they just label some for Shen Hao. Maybe they have no relationship at all. You can see the Shen Hao 612bc on the Badger graphic website. That's the one I have.

    The pictures on the Shen Hao site are tiny but it looks like two different 6x12 backs. One is the one I have. The other?

    Thread resurrection!

    I'm looking at getting one of these backs but wondering if the red window is a problem for colour or IR film. Has anyone tried these with anything other than B&W and checked for red-leakage?

    thanks...
