As I walked around with my Toyo View VX-125 film camera, I chatted with people about photography. Most had no idea about large-format film photography, but this guy actually said he had a Cambo 4×5 at one time. I told him “so did I, before this Toyo.” I was really glad I got rid of the Cambo and got my Toyo. It is SUCH a better, more versatile camera. Much more expensive, but after owning it and shooting with it for over 25 years, I felt it has been well worth the money.
