Look for a Linhof Rapid Rollex slide in roll film holder, it goes in the camera just like a regular sheet film holder. The disadvantage is that you cannot leave the film unused for long periods without winding because the film can take a set where it reverses over the roller in the end of the holder.

Look for a book "the View Camera" by Steve Simmons, you will learn a lot more a lot quicker. There is another book on view cameras published by Kodak. Have one or both of these before you decide to buy a camera.
Considering digital backs for medium format cameras cost about as much as a small car, I can't imagine how much one for a large format camera would cost .:confused:
I've been told, by a person in the industry, that wooden cameras are generally not sturdy enough for digital backs. I don't know this from personal experience, but would believe what I've been told.
An Ebony may be sturdy enough as a wooden camera, but they're very expensive. It may be an idea to look for a Linhof Technika IV or V.
