Lo Fi COMPLETELY REVERSIBLE Polaroid 180 and 195 to Graflock 2x3 conversion kit
Lo-Fi 3-D printed Polaroid conversion kit for the 180 and 195 to 2x3 graflock. Included are the 2x3 adapter, the front standard focusing strut, and the ground glass(plastic). Those of us who have manual packfilm cameras like the 180 and 195 suffered a great loss when they discontinued packfilm. The Lo-Fi pack film 23gl is an adapter that you simply rock and lock into place- almost as simple as putting a film cartridge in. This will allow you to use your camera like a graflex 2x3 press camera! This conversion kit allows you to accept 2x3 backs and accessories. 120 film backs like the Graflex23 graphic back and the Mamiya Pro S 120 back, the 23 Grafmatic, and just about anything that works with the 2x3 Graflock system. The kit comes with a ground glassplastic! So you can dial in the focus. Though you can continue to use the viewfinder to get a general idea, the original rangefinder will not function with this kit. There is a quick and easy strut to install on the front standard that allows you to dial in your focus. Install of this kit is a breeze, and(for you purists and collectors) it does not require ANY damage or permanent modification to the original camera. If you decide later to undo this kit, reversal is as easy as the original install. To install, just open the film door and rotate the back in, opening the release lever on the back of your camera, and letting it lock in place. Installing the front strut is just as easy. Use the bulb function combined with the ground glass to get it in focus-twisting the focus knob on the front standard strut, attach your choice of back to it, then shoot! If you choose, you can remove the back door by pulling the hinge pin. It can always be put back on later if you have an electric timer, you may want to crimp on some removable leads so it is easy to reattach. A couple of other notes: This option is not designed for plastic pack-film cameras. It does fit metal automatics like the 250,350, and 450, but you will have to cover the electric eye to create a "bulb" setting for using the ground glass.
Once you have converted your camera, you can get creative with the build. The addition of some acrylic paint or model paint can make them look even more original! I sell mostly Polaroid cameras, shoot mostly analog, and love to hack things.
