Toyo oh boyo


First camera was defective. Sent it back and Adorama took care of it--no complaints. Camera is well built and looks rugged enough to withstand the outdoor use it is about to get. Camera is pretty big for lugging around outdoors. Oh well, it looks really cool.

Questions about this item:

Skaught G  can one put a digital back on this camera?
Carol H  I don't see why not. The film holder is standard and if the digital back is designed for a "generic" 4x5 it should work.
