Toyo introduces 23D view camera for digital photography

200609bc_toyo23d Press Release—Toyo has introduced a new state-of-the-art view camera that is designed exclusively for digital photography. The new Toyo 23D has been developed from the ground up to meet the needs of today’s discriminating photographer.

Compatible with all current digital backs, the camera is available with either a Graflok adapter for use with backs featuring Live Video (such as Leaf) or a sliding adapter for those digital backs that do not. The Graflok adapter allows a digital back to be securely attached to the Toyo 23D just as if it were being attached to a roll-film camera. The sliding adapter offers two positions: one for focus and one for recording the image. Simply make your camera movements in the focus position and slide the back into the capture position to take the shot.

The Toyo 23D works with all view camera lenses, as well as those designed for higher resolution of digital backs. Standard lens boards will be available #0 & #1 shutters. There are also future plans for additional lens boards to support Hasselblad and Mamiya lenses.
