Spare Graphic View Spring Back outfitted with graphic 23 roll film holder. Basically, I removed the screws holding the springs and ground glass, and manufactured the two custom (aluminum) tabs, inserted the roll film holder, and screwed down the tabs.  This holder holds 120 film and shoots 6x9cm images.  When I want to use the roll holder - I focus at the ground glass using the spring back that came with the camera - then I remove the back and replace it with this to expose the shot(s). 

The very next day I broke the ground glass on my original back and replaced it in the Kalmiopsis wilderness with the spare from this back.

Often referred to as a "there and back again" roll film holder - this is an Adapt-A-Roll 620 Roll Film back for any camera that accepts a standard 4x5 film holder.  Currently 620 film is available (this is 120 rolled onto 620 spools), however it is more expensive.  Anyone interested in owning this (for a price), feel free to contact me.
