    According to my catalogs there was no 6x6 back for the RB or the RZ. The only RB/RZ square type of backs available were a Quadra 72 film back which used Polaroid instant 4x5 film and provided 72mm x 72mm images or the 68mm x 68mm Polaroid back that uses 3.25 x 4.25 pack film. The other backs were the 6x4.5 and the 6x8 power drive back although it wasn't 80mm wide. There's also a 6x9 cut film back for the RB that I have, again not near 90mm wide.

    If you wish a square image, crop.

    Precisely.

    i know thwy made rz 6x6, i seen it on ebay

    i dont like to crop, I like the pressure of having to frame it right the first time, the extra 2 shots are nice.

    Guys, an old Graphic "22" knob or lever wind back will fit the rB and it gives 12 6x6 frames. They are cheap on ebay!

    If it is, it fits the RB. I got it 2nd hand in the 1980s, so don't know much about it, other than that it works.
