    Hello from Germany

    Hi everyone,

    since my plan for this year is to venture into LF, I thought I better register at this forum

    I have some film experience in my dark past, but never really tried LF. in recent years I mainly did landscape work (usually on longer backcountry hikes off the beaten tracks), some architecture and wildlife, and some abstract.

    So my idea is to get myself a lightweight 4x5 field camera such as the Tachihara, some b&w developing chemistry and then scan the negatives.

    Anothe option for a camera might be the TOHO monorail, but I cannot find it anywhere for sale.

    Anyway, that is my current struggle

    Cheers,
    Alex

    Welcome, Alex. You probably will have more luck finding a field camera... and they set up faster.

    Welcome.
    Toho is no longer in business but there are still many choices.

    but those choices are twice the weight of the toho... so I guess I am looking for a 2nd hand toho

    Welcome. If you're looking for an ultralight monorail, check out the Gowland.
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.

    Thanks! Looks like it could be a good alternative indeed! Will check if they are available somewhere.
