    Re: Toyo lensboard question

    Toyo field cameras like the 45A accept Toyo 110x110mm lens boards while Toyo monorail cameras accept larger sizes (I think 127x127mm from memory). So, no, you can not use both sizes on both types.

    Also, look at some supplier catalogues from circa 1880-1910 here and you will find lots of listings and illustrations on Zeiss lenses from the era.

    Re: Compur shutter questions

    I forgot to mention that as far as I can make out a Compur (dial set) with 44mm AND 50mm rear thread (two varieties) is a Compur II/5 model, ie. No 2 type with 5 tubes.
