    I had a 1919 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" Revolving Back Graflex back hinged top-front curve, see p. 33 bottom photograph, THE AMERICAN CAMERAS a review of GRAFLEX®, by Richard P. Paine, 1981, Alpha Publishing Company, Houston, Texas

    I had to stop using it because body frame wobbled and made the shutter unreliable. A retired Graflex and Graphic repairman at www.graflex.org looked at it and said it was not worth repairing. But it was still too bulky to use with an adapted RH-12 as a MF camera.

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I think using an LF camera for 6x6 would be a less than satisfactory option.

    1) Much larger than a proper 6x6 SLR.
    2) Limited selection of lenses based on minimum bellows extension.
    3) More involved shooting sequence due to manual lens cock/release and aperture control.

    It would have the advantage of traditional LF movements, provided the lens IC could support same.
