Thanks Thomas. I'm putting my time into a new acrylic 4x5 field camera at the moment (currently making bellows) but will be back on the InsTLR back over the next few weeks.

Great job! I have a similar idea of hacking the Belair Instax Wide to fit on 4x5 cameras. Can I know which parts of the Belair back you removed to achieve this? Does the modified back require the ground glass to be moved further back to accommodate for the change in film plane distance?

Cheers!

The back has been sliced to 1.5 inches with slots to fit the Graflock tabs. On the Graphic it's easy to find lens infinity position and use the rangefinder. On a field camera you'll have to have to make a linear focus scale, since the back doesn't have a dark slide for mid-pack attach/remove.
