Well, since I talked about the system to catch the back, I'd like to be precise 
regarding my previous post, I saw that even the Rolleicords had changes, after 
the Rolleicord IV (my camera), the system was modified for the Rolleicord V, Va 
and Vb, it was added a locking lever on the left, it's necessary to swing it 
upwards to take the back off.
The point is that the different ways to catch the back are built in the camera 
body and they don't modify the backs compatibility, at least for the several 
cases I could verify it.-
