  2. Re: 75mm Super Angulon 5.6 - Lindhof Master Technica - SOFT EDGES

    The front cell unscrews from the shutter, just like the rear cell.

    A clear photo of the front of the lens board without the shutter would help us figure out the problem.

  3. Re: 75mm Super Angulon 5.6 - Lindhof Master Technica - SOFT EDGES

    I'm not sure what to make of this. The cells go into the shutter.

    1. Separate cells from shutter.

    2. Mount shutter into the front of the lens board and tighten the retaining ring.

    Yes, Toyo is still in the business of making cameras, film holders and accessories. They also make machine tools - which is actually the larger division of the company.

    If you ship the film, customs duty will have to be paid, so you should factor that into the cost. None of my customers have reported any issues with X-ray scanning.

  10. Re: Comparing the Toyo 45CF and the Super Graphic

    Toyo bought the rights and perhaps tooling and inventory from Graflex, after which they made the Toyo Super Graphic.
    The Toyo half plate "Original Field" camera used Graphic lens boards.
