Is there anyway to shoot 6x4 negatives on a Seagull TLR? The default seems to be 6x6.

The 4B-1 I had came with a 6x4.5 mask. Drop it onto the film plane before loading the film. The two film counter window on the back will allow you to tell when to stop advancing the frame. To compose, the focusing screen has two guidelines to aid 6x4.5 composition.

When I bought the camera a few years back the seller recommended that I avoid using the mask... something about the quality of the construction, might scratch the film or something. Not sure about QC now.

More specifically, the window which shows the frame counter for 6x4.5 format (16 frames).
