TOYO-VIEW - 45C

The 45C is a studio camera but I use it in the field. The camera, big old tripod and back pack I lug around weigh about twenty five pounds.























































Using a full blow view camera is unlike all other photographic endeavors. There are knobs, levers, gears, tilts, swings, rises, falls. Many adjustments need to be done under a dark cloth so you need to know where things are purely by feel. Ha ! That's kind of racy.

To say that LF photography is a slow activity is pretty accurate.
