    Thats a.... VERY minimalist design!

    I think 800 euros is a bit over the top for it and also makes it sit in this no mans land of not being cheap enough yet also expensive enough that a cheap secondhand camera with higher quality is not that much more.

    Cant imagine this will be as successful as the Intrepid to be honest.

    I agree, a very good used camera is cheaper.

    Interesting!
    I don't recognize the shutter on that Fuji lens and that 8x10 Woodyman on a selfie stick looks, well, courageous!
    What is the story on those bellows? I don't understand French
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    It's a "white face" Copal 3. Actually, IIRC it's a 3S. I have a 250 Fujinar SC that I purchased long ago. I have a vague recollection that at the time the price was low and I bought it thinking I wanted it for the shutter, but then when it arrived it was so nice that I decided I didn't want to take it apart.

    I read it over and they don't address the bellows.
    Spend more time discussing why LF and the camera in general

    The Fujinmar SC lenses came in COPAL #3 shutters. Details are at:

    I don't speak enough French either to get all the information off their site, but that design looks like it has more in the way of rear movements v. the 4x5 Intrepid, not sure about the coming 8x10 intrepid. I'm just excited that a lot of innovative thinking is being put into 8x10. I'm also curious what they might come up with in film holder technology, too.

    The decline of film coupled with the flood of used cameras will continue to depress the market for new large format cameras for many years to come.

    The weight (3.2 kg) is certainly appealing. If the construction quality is any good and the camera is decently rigid - hard to tell from what's shown - then I'd consider it good value at the price.
