Yesterday I took delivery of my new Wilderness 8x10 from China. I was not sure what to expect as I could find no information at all from anyone who had bought or handled one. So when opening the box I was a bit nervous. When I took it from its wrapping I knew that I had bought the right camera. Its an all metal 8x10 field camera built in with a design not unlike a Phillips Compact . For an all metal camera it's light at around 8-9 pounds..I have not weighed it yet. It has been engineered like a tank with every part being a metal of some sort. It was easy to erect, locks off to become very stable and has all of the movements that I will ever need. I put my 360 onto it which it seemed to handle fine though my work horse will be either my 240mm or my yet to be purchased 300mm...over 360 I am not sure if it would have all of the extension required. As of yet I have not had it in the field...it just came yesterday but I cannot wait to do so. I wanted a camera that was a modern and had all of the advantages of the best cameras on the market today... and I think that I have found it. I have no idea who designed or built it or where the factory is...but whoever you are thank you very much...I think I have my 10x8 for life..
