    120 on an Arca RM3di

    Can someone advise me on putting a 120 film back on an Arca RM3di?
    Arca doesn't seem to make a film holder so what would one use? And what adaptor plate would one need?

    thanks!

    I am no expert, but I believe only the RL3Di can take film. The RM3Di is only for digital backs.

    Arca used to make standard rollfilm backs, the Horseman model is almost identical. Personally I use a RB67.

    Every R-Line camera can be fitted with a 120 back, all you need is an adapter plate :

    The RL3di will let you shoot 4x5" too.

    No, not true. All the R-line cameras can accept roll film holders or digital backs. The RL3di can shoot roll film holders or 4X5 sheet film or digital backs.

    The R camera requires an adapter plate for the digital back to mount to the camera. A similar adapter plate is required to mount a roll film holder. The catalogue number is 080002N for the adapter plate and named "Film Holder Adapter 6X9 - N Standard".

    "N" indicates the new style for the digital designed cameras, in contrast to older Arca-Swiss cameras designed for film and before digital designs were introduced. Ground glass holder frame is stamped with "N" to be sure and any adapter plates should match up to N or non-N ground glass.

    Thanks for clearing that up, Rod! Seems like I was mistaken!
