... or My Affordable LargE Format Comfort Camera.

Looks like an expanded Travelwide, can use lenses from 45mm to 150mm

I like the idea of being able to use at least a 150mm lens. That TW 90mm was not optimal for me.

Another plastic helical! After the TW and Mercury I'm so done with those! Love the concept, haven't seen a successful execution of it and wouldn't lay out the money to see if this one will be any different.

Did you Google "malefic"? Very seasonal. Just not sure I'd want to provoke the spirit world!

The budget and schedule are just jokes. Look like they have been put together in less than one day, guesstimating everything. Test does not even agree with table:

About 24kEUR will be used to improve the design and tune it for all rewarded camera bodies and to invest on tooling and molding.

Table shows design improvement 6.5k + tooling 25k = 31.5k. A 31% difference. And I could go on with the ridiculous amount of contingency (3.6%) and the reason for that amount. First get the budget sums to agree to 3%, not 30%...
Speaking as someone who conducted several tech projects, including one specifically involving injection molding.
