    Toyo View Lensboards

    Hi,

    I've just bought a Toyo View 45Aii and my lenses (mounted on the Wista/Technica lensboards) don't fit into the lensboard area. The Toyo catalogue says that the lensboard given with the camera is a 110x110 size 0 - but I tried to attach a 0 lens onto the board and it didn't.

    Which lensboard adapter should I consider buying?
    Am I doing something wrong when I'm trying to attatch a lens onto the Toyo lensboard?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ashok

    You can buy an adapter to use Linhof boards on a Toyo field camera. I was just looking at this and see that B&H was selling this on a discount for around $170for a real Toyo product. Ebay shows some Chinese knockoffs at around $120. Cheaper used ones may be hard to find. I didn't see any currently on Ebay. This has discouraged me from getting a Toyo as my lenses are on Linhof boards to fit my other cameras. So considering the adapter cost I would probably be better off getting a Wista metal field camera.

    Thanks ChuckP. I did see that adapter on B&H - I think that seems the best alternative. Most second hand lenses are on Linhof boards.

    First problem: the 45A II is a Toyo-Field, not a view. Different size lens boards. View are 158mm x 158mm. Field are 110mm x 110mm.

    The adapter for Linhof/Wista boards are #180-635

    Second problem: maybe the board you got was mangled at some point? A #0 hole should be 34.7mm diameter.

    I got a #0 view board from KEH and my Caltar 130mm fits perfectly in it.
