Anybody knows if I just broke my camera.
I just got it yesterday and play with it. And the back fell off. I checked everything but there's no sign of break. My guess is it is assembled by clips or some sort of spring.

I'm not familiar with your camera, but the focusing screen on my Cambo 4x5 may be similiar. Those two brackets in the bottom of the photo normally hold the glass focusing screen to the back of the camera, but allow the film holder to be pushed between the camera and the screen. I've never tried to remove those two brackets The screen is normally held in place by spring pressure with those brackets and can be removed by sliding the screen in one direction to disengage the screen.
I don't know if any of this info helps.

ps. I don't think you broke it. Think of it as a puzzle. I would love to get my hands on it.

Fixed it. thanks.
FYI, it's not broken.
It is just held by s long sturdy metal across which acted as a spring. Never realize it.
