Show and Tell: My awesome field camera


I have run out of re-recording steam, so without further ado and with many a jump cut, here is a little show and tell for you guys:



I didn't go into much detail, but if there is anything particular you'd like to know or see, just shout me in the comments :)

Have a fantastic weekend!

  5. Hi there :)It is a Toyo 45A
    I 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 :)
