What a cool item - I'm jealous!
The camera eye view of you upside down was so cool!
Pleased you enjoyed it - That was definitely the most magic part for me when I first handled one of these :)
you're so cute. i love using 4x5 film cameras. i'm not sure if you mentioned the name/brand/model of your field camera, but i would love to know it!
Hi there :)It is a Toyo 45AI love how rugged it is (it's what they stocked for loan at my uni, which says a lot about how hard it is to break one of these babes), though it is a heavy beast to carry around. I hear it's not amazing on movements (only a little rear swing and tilt but no shifts), which has never bothered me as soon as I use it almost exclusively for portraiture.The bellows aren't interchangeable, but again, it suits me for portraiture just fine :) Occasionally I get a hankering for an 8x10 but I am definitely deeply in love with my toyo :)
aahhhh so cool!!
AMAZING. You have posted this camera in photos in the past, and it is great to learn so much more about it.
