    New 'Affordable' 8x10 camera

    I'm not associated with the company, just passing on the info. I don't see the cost listed anywhere either.

    Looks nice... it looks like it focuses like my 14x17, by just sliding the front standard by hand...

    I believe CatLab sells it for about $2700.

    Always glad to see new LF cameras coming to market, but for the money and the way that thing was shaking around as he applied various movements I'd go with an Intrepid 8x10 for 480 pounds! Use the savings for travel.

    Looks like bellows and gg/filmholders are held on by magnets, don't they lose their integrity after a time?

    I noticed that too, but I think that might have been because he had it on a flimsy tripod with the centre pole elevated.

    I think a lot of it was because he never took the time to practice on it!

    To me, the front standard looks like it is forward/back “rocking” on the two bolts that attach it to the baseplate. If this is the case, it needs (at least) a third point of attachment, probably at the rear of the base of the front standard to stabilise the whole assembly front to back.

    (Am I seeing Light coming from underneath the brace on the back of the front standard assembly?)

    It looked to me like the video was a just a preview and the cost for the 8x10 hasn't been set yet, but the 4x5 version is 297 euros.
