During my last trip on Japan, I spend a lot of time in the camera shops ofcourse.
I found one camera that I am not familiar with, it was Tokistar TZ-45 IIB.
The overall look was bulky and bit unfinished, but what was shockint was the price, it was 178,500 yen. That's more than 8x10 Tachihara and over double price of Tachihara 4x5.
Overall finishing of Tachihara looks way better than bulky Tokistar, so what's behind the price. Is it much more sturdier camera?
