    Hello there.

    I'm late to the large format party, but was interested in possibly buying a Fotoman 45PS. Alas, they are no more. Or at least Fotoman Limited is no more? I'm a little confused. I've tried emailing both Paul at Fotoman Limited and the email listed in another post for Fotoman China and have received no response.

    Does anyone sell these cameras anymore? Anyone know how to get one?

    Thanks in advance,
    Christine:confused:

    I thought Photoman went out of business. I'd recommend a Crown Graphic instead.

    I'm the owner of a 45PS. Today I feel like the Gaoersi would have been the better choice, because there are more possibilities to attach different backs. The only backs I can use without mechanical changes are 4x5 slide film backs (Due to the fact that there are no parts anymore available).
