Great field camera and extremely tough

By Matt the cat

from Eastern MO

Comments about Toyo-View 4x5 45CF Field Camera:

these cameras are carbon fiber and don't have tons of features. But they are tough. Mine fell off the tripod at 4 plus feet and didn't break anything but the ground glass. They are not the precision machine like Sinar but it gets the job done.

    Comments about Toyo-View 4x5 45CF Field Camera:

    I'm a senior photo major and purchased the camera when I took a 4x5 Photography class. I figured I could always sell it after the class if I didn't wish to continue to use it, but I'm so keeping it! It's easy to use and lightweight!

    Comments about Toyo-View 4x5 45CF Field Camera:

    It was a bit difficult at the beginning to open the camera, but after several tries, it was ok (a knob was blocking). The camera seems to be fragile, but if you're careful, there's no big deal. You can make all the tilt-shift movements you want, except for the back, but for this price, it's really really good. Also, you can draw your own measure on the focal rail. The plastic is robust and all the mechanical parts are in metal. The design is, for that matter, excellent.
    In the other hand, the knobs and triggers are not precise, such as the movements. You may need time to seek the angle you want.
