Quickload holder on view camera

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Hello everyone,

I've just purchased my first view camera, a nice Wisner 4X5. I've got a Fuji quickload holder to go with it. However, I can't figure out how to attach the holder to the back of the camera. Does it slide it in front of the ground glass, or do I have to remove the ground glass? Thanks for any and all advice.

It should slide right in behind the ground glass just like a film holder; at least that's the way it works on my camera.

Sorry Katherine it slides in FRONT of the ground glass if you are looking at the camera from the back. Brian the quickload should load just like a regular film holder, pull the top lip of your ground glass and slide the holder in.

Yes, behind the glass. The glass is between the film holder and you; therefore, the film holder is behind the glass. I think we've got a positional semantic problem here, not a difference of opinion problem.
