    Half-wit Anyone with a brain would know if you put your marbles on the top range-finder they'll fall of when you move the camera

    Sorry Steve couldn't resist that.

    Although the top mounted range-finder was introduced in 1955 Graflex still old Graphics with side mounted range-finders one of ines early 60's.

    The top mounted range-finder was on the MPP MicroPress first, much earlier (not the same make range-finder) but the MicroPress is a Speed Graphic at heart - same front standard, focus rails, shutter, bellows, lens boards, shutter release, just a different wooden box, back & door made in the UK.

    I sure wish someone would find a quick and easy way to use standard Polaroid film in those cameras.

    Etsy is not a good place for deals (yes I saw it there too)- unless the seller is really clueless. Look on EBay and KEH instead. KEH has some great deals on modern lens that make Ebay prices look laughable.

    Haven't been over in Graflex.org for a long time, but I repair Graphics and there's nothing about them that I can't unless it's machine work, but parts are available. The reason I say top mounted too is that the side mounted just picks up one lens, and not well on both extremes, and alot of people strip it off anyways for weight savings. My Graphics are all stripped of side mounts which come in varying degrees of crapiness; Mirrors, stripped screws, corrosion.
    Btw, OP, I have a friend that I met recently that has a top mounted with 127mm with what seemed like good shutter speeds for sale. Pretty clean body, good leather. If interested I could call him and put you in touch.

    I figured to use the side range finder for one lens and the ground glass for any others. With either a wide angle or telephoto, I want to see exactly what is in the field of view and the details of the depth of field.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
