I have used rb backs on a 2x3 Speed. That's how I suspected the offset was different. The negatives on film from the rb were just not quite in focus. Kind of like a Minolta 370 I had. I would KNOW I had that image in focus and take it into the dark room and cuss up a storm. The solution to that was called "FM2". Never had an issue after that. Gave the Minolta away to someone who couldn't tell the difference. The solutuion to the 2x3 Speed was just not shoot with a rb67 back.

I suppose getting a second junk back and affixing a ground glass in the opening with the matte side flush with the film rails would work.


...or maybe some kind of a mirror at a 45 degree angle, with a mechanism to raise it...
