Try searching previous messages on this list for Calumet C-1 or Orbit. You'll find there are quite a few! I have a black Calumet C1 8x10 and have profited a great deal from these past discussions. By the way, I've only seen the C-2 designation used in reference to the 120/220 film backs for the 4x5 camera. Good luck! You've got a great camera!
