120 roll film backs for view cameras

Some view cameras like this Linhof system allow a 120 roll film back to be inserted. While this means the camera can be used for smaller formats in this case, it also means removing the viewing screen between each shot and inserting the roll back.

The back is released and locked with a lever on the camera back assembly that slides across.

Removing and reinserting the ground glass screen is achieved by locking a sprung arm in behind a pin recessed in a slot on the camera back assembly.
