Pros and cons of 45 CX

The Toyo was my first camera a few years ago (yeah I learnt to drive in a Land Rover, too).

It doesn't have geared movements but fine focus is geared. To use the common Linhof sized lensboards it is necessary to use an adaptor. The fittings for rear and front elements are not metal, but a rugged plastic which has been durable. The ground glass doesn't have fresnel, but I'd imagine that for studio use that this would not be a problem. The Toyo film holders are good.
