    Or the old, cheap and limited Linhof Color; or the newer (but out of production), heavier and superflexible Carbon Infinity. I recently upgraded from one to the other.

    Hi Ole,

    That may be true about the Carbon Infinity, but there seems that there were only between about 35?? and 60 or so ever made. They would be very difficult to find and quite costly as well. :rolleyes:

    As to the cumbersome nature of Monorail cameras the two that were mentioned the Linhof Technikardan 45 and 45S (mentioned by me and Roger Hicks has/had) and the Toho FC45X (mentioned as Roger's travel/backpacking camera) would not be that combersome.

    I would like to thank everyone for their comments. I am still in the decision phase, but because I am looking for both a landscape and portrait camera, I will probably lean towards a field camera. However, I have done a lot of research, and if I can find the Toho that Roger mentioned, that may be a fine option. I am not sure how much I am going to throw at this project, and if I can get a paying client to fund the thing, that may not be an issue. In the mean time I have enjoyed everyone’s thoughts and ideas. Thanks for taking the time to respond.

    Hi,

    Here is the link for the camera at Badger Graphic Sales, they are as far as I know the only US importer/distributor of the camera:

    http://www.badgergraphic.com/store/c...t_detail&p=147

    Our own Kerry Thalmann has used the camera, is a great proponent of the camera and has a review of it on his site:

    http://www.thalmann.com/largeformat/toho.htm

    There is much discussion of this unusually designed and operated camera through a search on the internet.

    Hope this helps.
