About the Toyo 45AX Pro

The 45AX camera body is identical to the classic Toyo Field 45AII, and is equipped with a standard, reversible 4x5 Graflok back in place of the 45AII's deluxe revolving back, to economize on weight and cost. Weighing less than 6 lbs., the Toyo Field 45AX offers all metal construction, full featured movements, and portable, light weight, yet rugged design that are the hallmarks of Toyo Field cameras. For the professional and serious enthusiast, the 45AX represents the best value in a versatile and compact technical 4x5 field camera.

For the professional and serious enthusiast, the 45AX represents the best value in a versatile and compact technical 4x5 field camera.

In addition, the 45AX reversible back can be interchanged with any Toyo deluxe revolving back for added convenience at any time. For bright viewing, ease of composition, and accurate focusing, the 45AX reversible back comes equipped with Toyo's own acid-etched ground glass. It reveals translucent centimeter grid lines and discreet reference markings for 6x7cm and 6x9cm roll film formats. This permits critical composition and freedom from distracting black lines common on most 4x5 screens. The grids and markings even simplify composition with creative 6x12cm panoramic format. The 45AX reversible back also includes a precision factory-installed Toyo Super-Brite Fresnel Lens in front of the ground glass.

The 45AX offers creative image control ideal for field use, as well as many studio applications. The front standard offers rise, swing, tilt and shift. The rear offers tilt and swing. With these controls, correction of distortion, adjustment of depth of field, and manipulation of selective focus are all possible.

The Toyo Field 45AX features versatile tapered normal/wide angle bellows, drop bed and double extension construction for use with lenses from 47mm superwide to 360mm telephoto, and optional extension backs for macro and longer lenses.
