I have an ancient holder with no rib, and the camera came with a no-name holder in fine shape that has a small rib moved far enough down the holder that it engages the inside of the back, not a channel. Kinda hate to make sawdust from this queen, but if I'm gonna burn Efke, I'll need all my holders. Scan of first image(s) to follow.
Congratulations on the new F&S, scootermm had one of these and it was indeed a nice camera (he moved up to the 12x20 big brother of the F&S 7x17). As I recall, rather than alter the camera he altered the rib on the S&S holders, so you might consider that option. Send Matt a PM, I know he would be happy to discuss it with you. Have fun!!
