    Mamiya 645 film backs

    Is there a film back that will result in a 6X6 or 6X9 frame for a Mamiya 645? Or is the 645 limited to the 6X4.5 frame?

    645 was designed for THAT format. If you measure the opening behind the camera, you'll notice it's not that much bigger than that.... there's no way you can do anything bigger.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    Well you can get a Polaroid back that will take Fuji 3.25x4.25" film.

    The IMAGE will still be 6x4.5cm, but it will use big film.

    I have one BTW - still handy for proofing but an awfully small Fujiroid.

    And yes welcome, don't mind the smartasses, we're harmless. Well, mostly harmless.
