    I thought you were sayong that the camera came with a 4x5 back, if its a 4x5 reducing back i guess you'll nee dthe 5x7 back to make it work. Still, i want it!

    It has a 5x7 back frame, a "normal" front frame (I guess: it has the same size as my 810G), and two backs: a 5x7 back and a 4x5 back; you use one or the other, not one into the other; here are some more pictures to make it clearer:

    Stefan,

    How much does the 5x7 weigh? Is it close to the 810G?

    Hello Thomas,

    I did not weight it yet, because both cameras are now mounted on different tripods, but according to the general Toyo system brochure that came with it, the 57G weights 5.4kg and the 810G 7.4 kg.

    Stefan.

    And I thought my mintish Sinar Norma 5x7 with assorted extras (no lenses, though) for 275 euros the other day was a good buy... but this... I'd say the seller basically gave it away. Good steal!

    I'm very happy with it, and now I have a second one, that I'll sell. Since I promised Paul to offer it to him first, I try to contact him, but his PM box is full. I hope he'll see this message.

    Stefan.
