    sliding 6x9 graflok back for mamiya

    Kapture group is pretty much out of business..

    I am looking for 6x9 graflok back with mamiya adapter.
    Found some ebay knock off from China under the title "movable back" -- has anyone had experience with theses?

    Also (newbie question) - would I be right or wrong to assume 6x9 graflok is standard?
    IE a sliding adapter listed as "for Linhof 6x9" will fit on my Toyo 6x9 graflok type back?

    thanks all

    This how I understand things:
    There are many styles of graflok backs, although they all accept graflok style adapters, they can sometimes have proprietary additional ways of attaching accesories like sliding backs. Not all accesories from all manufacturers fit all graflok backs. If it says it fits a graflok back however, you should be fine with whatever style you have.
    Plus, are you sure which 'Linhof 6x9' they are talking about? Some refer to the cameras that way and some to the Linhof 6x9 rollfilm back, which might be the only ones that fit the sliding back.

    I'm no expert at this by any means. I would ask someone that makes adapters about your specific problem, like Jo Lommen or SK Grimes. You could also try the Large Format Photography forum, plenty of helpful and knowledgeable tinkerers there that know LF backs very well.

    Good luck,
    Jewan

    Linhof 6x9cm cameras/backs/rollholders are not Graflok-type. For that size, Linhof uses a proprietary rollholder mount that's different from everyone else's.

    What exactly do you mean by this? What back are you trying to fit to what camera?
