    WTT: Shen-hao PTB 4x5 (chamonix clone) for Toyo 45CF

    Hi !

    I have a almost unused Shen-hao PTB 4x5 camera (almost 1:1 chamonix clone) which i would like to trade it for a nice Toyo 45CF.

    Yes, I'm fully aware of the fact that the Toyo get some bad reviews, lack of movements etc. But I was the happy owner of one and would like to get back the compact clamshell with a 135mm or 150mm lens mounted on the camera, great for the kind of travel I do. The Shen-Hao PTB offers more movements and has better spec, a very good camera, but needs to be better packed than the toyo.

    So any how would want to trade?

    BTW I'm located in Norway.
    Morten :-)

    Yes, You are right, and then not.. :rolleyes:

    Yes, the PTB (Chamonix) have better spec as a viewcamera in almost every point.

    But, my aim with the Toyo is to have sturdy well protected clamshell package with a lens mounted for traveling. To get that I'm willing to let go of the better features on the PTB. So for my requirements for this camera usage the Toyo is a better match.

    And I have a nice Shen-Hao 5x7 FLC (with 4x5 back) and a 8x10 deardorf when I need to do all the other stuff wich the PTB does.
