    Good Morning

    Hello. I'm a semi-retired Architect who has played with Nikons for the last umpteen years. I've always been aware of LF but never got off dead-center until I picked up a decent used TOYO 45G for an obscenely low price at an auction. It's missing a few items (lens & board primarily) but I'm actively searching for deals on essentials.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Although a wee bit on the heavy side, you have a very good camera system. If you don't already have one, you'll need a bag bellows . . . especially for architectural photography.

    This forum will be a good resource as you make your way into LF. Have Fun.

    Welcome to the forum, Karl!

    Since you are a Nikon fan, there are some great sharp and contrasty Nikkor large format lenses available to use on your Toyo!

    Thank you all for the warm reception.
    Is there a way around the 1-month wait to get to the Buy/sell forum?
    I'm looking for missing pieces of the TOYO-View sdo I can get started.

    No no way to access the FS WTB forum until a member for 30 days and we have good reason for this rule. All that said the guy who would probably supply or locate a Toyo bit would probably be B.S Kumar (a long time member/sells here & Photrio) and he has a photo gear business out of Japan and you can PM him for his email address unless it's in his personal page found here. https://www.largeformatphotography.i...1796-B-S-Kumar

    BTW Welcome to the club Karl & look forward to your future contributions to the forum.

    Karl, welcome to the website. I am also a professional architect - and practice in Washington State. As John says above a bag bellows for wide angle lens use is very useful for architectural photography. I have been able to find various parts for my cameras on: craigslist, e-bay, various stores that sell used cameras and parts. I buy lens boards every time I get a new lens.
