    Toyo Robos system information is sought. I remember reading someplace about how amazing and great this ROBOS camera was with bi-axial yaw-free..yada yada.. I also recall the article mentioned that Sinar held on to some of the patents that the ROBOS may have infringed upon or vice-versa. Can anyone give me more insight into this camera and why it was discontinued by Toyo so fast in 1997. thanks.
