    Toyo Question and Hi from Manchester, U.K.

    Hi guys,

    I a photography student here in the U.k. I got into large format photography last year as part of a project. I am currently looking at buying my own Large Format camera and using it in a project for this year and next. As well as for my own enjoyment.

    In the local shop in town there is a Toyo view camera, with a sironar 150mm lens. Does anyone have any info on whether this is a good set up?

    My previous experience is with a Wista field camera another monorail. (forget the name)

    Here are a couple of examples of my work:







    Thanks for reading. Any info on the toyo and lens combination would be greatly received.

    Which model Toyo? Which type Sironar 150?

    Toyo makes several models of their cameras. There are different types of Rodenstock

    Sironar 150mm lenses.

    You need to be more specific in order to receive informed opinions.
