    Graflex Film Pack Adapter?

    What exactly is a Graflex Film Pack Adapter? Is it for Instant pack films?

    No, it was for Kodak pack film -- sheets of thin negative material in a cardboard pack.

    was there a film pack adapter for the series D ?
    do you mean a bag mag(azine) ?

    i am not sure if you have tried this, or wish to use roll film,
    but you can just TAPE the roll film adapter
    to the back of the camera, it will probably work just fine ( i do that ) ..

    Not completely worthless. It is possible to convert them to hold glass plates.
    Particularly if you have a pack of the film as it contains a spacer to provide the proper depth..

    Actually, I think that it's a neat way of doing wetplate with a speed (or other camera) in theory.

    I haven't tried mine out yet as I lack the funds for wet or dry plate but would love to try it.

    It's a shame that pack film isn't available anymore, i've used a few packs and it is the greatest thing there is... Seriously the most convenient stuff.. so fast and easy to use. It's a shame.. Screw grafmatics and readyloads.. Give me a stack of pack films...

    Phillip, that's an interesting idea. Do you have any resources where I could learn to do plate work?
    Thanks

    If you were to have a Graflex camera without a ground glass back, you could make a ground glass that would fit inside the film pack. The back swings open and you use it for comp and focus on that camera. I have thought of using this set up for checking the focus on my rb graflex.
