    According to Intrepid's website FAQ, it already has a weather resistant coating.

    I have this camera as well and have certainly wondered what it would take to remove the water resistant coating that is already there and replace it with something like Teak Oil. Anyone have thoughts on that? I haven't subjected this camera to too much weather yet, so I'm not sure how well the current water resistant coating will hold up.

    Let's add the giveaway video here. http://www.largeformatphotography.in...view-Giveaway)

    FREE INTREPID DRAWING VIDEO


    I have a couple points to add to the video review.

    Inside there are a couple bare, meaning not blackened surfaces, I did what I could with magic marker.

    The GG removes quickly to add a roll film back mount after you have focused.

    A 360 mm Tele lens is easily fitted and will also focus to 9 ft or less. I prefer to not find the limit.

    The notch described in the video places the front frame at almost the right place for the almost standard Linhof drop center lensboard.

    Use a Golf umbrella in the Rain. Keep your powder (film) dry...

    Pics permanantly posted.

    Yes, there are many ways to blacken, next I will try India Ink with an actual paint brush to reach the corners.

    The flash made the Magic Marker look lighter.

    I have the Kickstarter 4x5, which is a bit different than Gen 2. It is a very well built camera and works quite well in the field. It is very light and my el cheapo Slik tripod holds it in place perfectly.

    Of course, like most cameras, the operator and the lens make the image. If you are inclined to hike into the outback but are not interested in packing a heavy camera, this one will certainly bring back the goods if you do your part.

    Finally, if you are interested in getting into large format this is a wonderful way to do it without robbing the rent.

    I used this on a project along the immigrant trail in Nevada last May and June. It performed perfectly. I also carried a very nice ROC Empire State 8x10 that is pretty light for its size. But, the little Intrepid was the camera I grabbed most frequently since it was much easier to carry on the trail.
    The Viewfinder is the Soul of the Camera

    If you don't believe it, look into an 8x10 viewfinder!

    Yes, I have seen FAQ page, but I wonder if this coating is enough for our cold and damp climate

    It might be worth contacting them to ask about the nature of the coating. At the very least, the UK is a very damp place, albeit not super cold.
