Re: [Rollei] Cut Film Back

Well, for what its worth I thought I'd share my experience in trying a cut film
back set with seven holders.  To get to the chase, the back with the ground
glass didn't fit either my 3.5 E (two bodies) or my 3.5 F.  It seems the width
of the mounting pins were too wide to mount onto the back of the camera body.  I
guess they were made for an earlier model of camera.  Does anyone know the
cutoff model for using these backs, or whether there was a later edition of the
back with a narrower hinge?  I should mention the Cut film back itself was
inscribed with a reference to being made in Germany (vs W. Germany).  It was
only about 2mm or so (1/32 of an inch to put it in perspective for our English
measurement participants) too narrow.   Well, that's about it.  No photo results
to report, just pure Rollei parts info.
