    Max... please tell me how to use a paperclip to test the back. While the back is attached to the camera, I can try to get a little paperclip in there? Thanks for your response. I have already started eBaying for a new revolving adapter... no auctions yet. Anyone have an old, non-working RB67 they want to sell for parts?
    You may want to try KEH for a new revolving adapter (or film back)

    Okay, I've just ordered a revolving adapter from KEH. If that solves the problem, I will let you know and maybe "tim in san jose" would like to get himself one too. If it doesn't do the trick, maybe KEH will let me return theirs, and I will then try a different back.

    Oh, I've never shot without a revolving adapter, didn't even know that was an option

    Cherry, get thee a motorized 6x8 back while you're at it and thank me later! They are inexpensive.

    Keith, I haven't been shooting without a revolving adapter, just possibly shooting with a slightly defective one.

    As for the motorized back... man, haven't I spent enough money for a while? It really never stops does it? I will put that one on my wish list. Who knows, maybe a family member will want to know what I want for a birthday or Christmas. If this revolving back fixes my problem with the camera, I really think I am *done* shopping for equipment for a while. I am going to have a helluva time digging myself out of credit card debt ... all for the love of photography.

    I see what y'all are saying. I have both a professional and a Pro S bodies, I have both Pro S and non-Pro S backs and all of them require I move that lever to the right to advance the film.

    And frankly.. it doesn't matter. The cameras take great pictures. One extra little step doesn't infringe on my photo experience.

    and cherry, if that does solve the problem, I'm always looking for donor RB parts for future frankencamera projects..

    Tim, ist it the same revolving adapter/body? most of the ones I've seen really need a good teardown and cleaning/relube. Even ones from KEH, in fact. I now make it routine to tear down new backs and revolving adapters with any camera I get.

    Here's another "newbie question".....

    If you're not using a flash, does it matter what setting you use on the lens's M-X selector?

    With these lens, no. I always keep mine on X. Keeps down the thinking when setting up flash later.

    Two different bodies with their own adapters. Perhaps they could use a re-lube, but this isn't a real problem. I have several 645 backs and several 6x7 backs. All exhibit the same behavior.
