A year ago i put a post out asking which 5x4 camera was recommended to a complete beginner of 5x4..
I ended up buying a toyo view +75/90 and 150 lenses and a 6x9 mamya roll back..
anyway what this leads me to is - I like the results of 5x4 and have achieved some wonderful images... but didnt think I would have a problem travelling with it nor had i considered or thought about it when i bought the camera...well about travelling on a train or a plane..in a car with the big black magic box is fine but take with anywhere else forget it...
I am back at the old drawing board
I will start to photograph specialist hotels in a month and need to travel on a plane with equipment..which means new camera body all over again...i want to make the right decision this time and i dont want money to be an obstacle as I will pay for it longterm...
the options that have been provided to me are
1/Toyo vx125 5/6
3/Arca swiss metric range with geared movements
most important that it can
1/pack up into a dedicated bag or a lowprow style bag .
2/ be useful for architecture possible geared movements but not essential
3/rise and fall is important
so all advice welcome
