Former Toyo Metal Field Camera Owners : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Why did you decide to sell your Toyo metal field camera? Your experience may be very valuable to those of us who faced with a buying decision. Thanks

Although I didn't sell the 45A-II I've replaced it in many usages with a Canham DLC45; compared to the Canham and quite a few other field cameras the Toyo is lacking in front rise and extension. Also the lack of a bag bellows limits use of indirect rise.

Within its limitations, though, it worked fine and smoothly.
