    What Kind of animal I have

    I just bought for 200 Euri a strange animal (without the bellow): the back is Toyo 8 x 10 GII (all black), the front is a Toyo 4x5 C (all black) , the monorail is chromate. It is just a matter of name or I lost something?

    Thanks for your help

    A Toyenstein?

    Toyo employs a fairly modular design on their cameras, so many of the parts are somewhat interchangeable. The rise/fall rails on the 810G/GII front standard are a bit longer (and heavier) than those on the 45C, but the bellows attachment and lens boards are the same size. Thus, with the 45C front standard, you might be rise-limited, but it should be OK for most things.

    IIRC, that's a Toyo 4x5 with the 8x10 conversion. Replacement bellows are available from Toyo or retailer.

    Thanks to everybody. Very helpful.

    Now I understand that I have a big 4 X 5 or, putting in a different way a small 8 x 10
