    First 8x10 - Stenopeika or The Italian Camera

    Hey

    Im looking in investing in my first 8x10 camera, been shooting 5x4 for a while now and would like to jump to a bigger size. Been looking at the Stenopeika Hyper Camera or The Italian Camera Bellatrix these look miles ahead from the intrepid 8x10 and was wondering if anybody has shot them or got any ideas about either of them? The stenopeika uses magnets to hold the bellows in place which worrys me but apparently he has never had a problem or complaint and I havent heard of anyone using the bellatrix camera. Or does anyone have any recommendations for other 8x10 cameras looking for under 1000 and based within england or europe

    Magnets, provided they are well distributed, might just be a touch of brilliant design.

    Just unsure how well they will hold and be light tight
