Yes, it has some limitations, but for the costs and weight I think it's going to be great.
    I have to agree here. I've had several disappointing purchases from CatLabs including one where I paid for an item and found out later it was sold to someone else. He did refund my money later but the communication left a lot to be desired and I will avoid purchasing anything from him in the future. I don't see CatLabs as a unbiased or trustworthy source for information.

    I have had good experiences with CatLabs. Omer is not chatty but he has been extremely helpful to me, often giving me good advice when there was nothing to be gained by doing so.

    Likewise.

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

    Seems he might be selling the camera with lens and film holder at quite a markup on flea bay...

    Which is really only to be expected, considering the nature of his business. There was quite a lot of similar activity with the LOMO russian "Petzval" for those who were "lucky" enough to get hold of an early one! It is certainly a good piece of public relations for Intrepid - if it sells!

    Attacking stores or sellers for their pricing is Against LFPF Valuation Policy!

    It's also an attack on free enterprise.

    well Randy no offence intended at all........................

    I was just making a point, calm down, to say I'm "attacking" is pretty strong and has the potential to 'whip up' something from a cold start - I'm not trying to flame anyone, just making a valid point and at the same time possibly helping some potential buyers out

    My regards and btw I always appreciate your very knowledgeable posts on here

    just to add Randy that I'm not sure whether your comments were aimed at me or at 'Tim V' too...........?

    anyhow here's a link to his non-eBay store so that everyone can see:-

    and I also should have said that I'm a big fan of "free enterprise"

    Good morning
