Hello all,

this is my first post at APUG after long period of reading. First I would like to thank you all for such nice and informative forum. I have realy learned a lot. :smile:

Now to question. I have this nice "Polaroid Pathfinder 120" land camera that I would like to covver to 4x5 or possible 6x12 format, I havent decided yet. I have collected some guides and got some know-how from the net but I still have a few questions.

- As for me in Europe is to expensive to get the Graflok back, can I use Sinar back? I have old Sinar Norma back that I can sacrifice :smile:

- Is it possible to change the lens on this land cameras with something like Linhof lenses?


I think this is it for now, I am sure that it will come more questions and I will share my knowlage with you as my project develops.

PS-

I am sorry for spelling mistakes...:smile:

Best regards
Neno.

I bought a Mamiya RB 67 revolving back adapter from KEH and it had the sliding locks on it. got it AS-IS for less than $20. Whether you could adapt something like that I don't know. It is limited to 6X7 though.

Mounting a lens isn't difficult it's getting the focus set up. I did this once with a Polaroid & it was just annoying to fiddle with setting infinity. To use more than one lens you would have to have movable infinity stops like a graflex
