Utilizing the standard Toyo 39mm diameter 18" base rail with micro focusing, its interchangeable bellows permit the camera to be folded into a very compact package when taken from the studio to outside locations.

Both front and rear standards offer center 45° tilt movements, 30° swing movements, and 80mm rise. The shift movement of the front standard is 30mm. The rear standard's is 45mm. The minimum bellows extension is 80mm with a flat lensboard, 76.5mm with a 12.5mm recessed board.

Its reversible Graflok type back accepts all 4x5 cutfilm holders, Kodak Readyload and Polaroid 4x5, as well as 6x7 and 6x9 rollfilm holders.

The rear standard also features a dual axis spirit level.

Balloon bellows, for wide angle photography and most of the Toyo modular system accessories can also be attached to this model.

All this in a modern view camera, which will have a "street price" of about 600, will make the Toyo 45CX an exciting tool for established as well as aspiring professional photographers.
