    Toyo 45A- tilt stop lever

    Hi,

    I just received my Toyo 45A, it didnt came with any instructions, however, I downloaded one. The instruction that I have downloaded is not really clear and I cant find how( or why) to use the -tilting stop lever- any clue?

    thanks,

    Daniel

    On the rear?

    When it is set the back should then open up to the zero position - i.e. it is perpendicular to the bed.

    When the stop lever is released, it let's you tilt the back further than 90 degrees.

    Having the lever set allows you to open up and set the standard quickly

    As Tim pointed out. It also lets you know when the rear standard is in the neutral position.

    To further Tim's statement. Allthis assumes the 45A operates the same as the current AX and AII which, AFAIK, it does:

    1) Front tilt is managed by two levers on either side of the front standard; flip either one DOWN and the standard is locked, both is the tight lock.

    2) Rear tilt is managed by the knobs at the bottom of the rear and little levers right above the knobs. Loosening the knobs gives you forward tilt ONLY and the back will stop at 90 degrees from the bed. To get back tilt you need to flip both of the levers right above the knobs UP. Default position of the levers is down, as Tim noted, allowing quick setup and takedown of the camera.

    Even assuming that you can, you probably wouldn't want to. When I got my AX a few years ago, it was abundantly clear that the manual writer's native language was anything but English. It was better to futz around with the contols myself rather than trying to understand what the manual was trying to say.

    Agreed. I have a 45AII I bought new, and I have the manual for. However, the English in the manual is so bad it makes the manual basically unreadable.
