    I don't agree with you at this point, Richard. Everyone knows the Saber's price. They are different market target.

    Drew, it was priced in HKD which I translated (xe.com) to $USD. It may be worth the price bump to get it with the guarantees/protection(?) of the ebay marketplace vs. an asian marketplace, however.

    i tried to ask the ebay-seller 3d-krsc about the shutter but he didnt understand or didnt want to...
    a) can the plates be replaced? every shutter costs 80 usd.
    b) replaced e.g with zoneplates, zone-sives from skinkfoto.
    c) would it hold his 20mm plates? whats the diameter for the plates?

    It's a Linhof style lens board and interchangable.
    Its pinholes can be changed to 3 sizes (Diameter).

    Does anyone have further experiences with these camera? Especially curious about the 4x5 rangefinder, how usable it is and how durable.

    Re: New compact 4x5 camera from China

    I have just received the 18 camera. I live & work in Shanghai, China & it seems I have purchased the last ever camera that was in stock. I got completely black version with 2 cams (I have sent my 150mm (Xenotar clone) Komura 150mm 3.5 and Xenotar 135mm 3.5 lenses and received the appropriate cams for them!)
    Quality of work seems quite good. Range finder spot is contrasty enough, although the baselength seems short & I am not sure how precise it will be in real life usage... but hope to find out some time soon. It's already night here so I will be testing camera tomorrow. Waiting for some more info from Pierre about actual usage... but for sure happy to have a "Saber" style camera in 4x5.

    Milos, good to hear you got one of these. Post some images of the camera, and of stuff you shoot with it too. Did they indicate they were making more of these? It is an interesting design. I have a Saber so don't need one of these in an immediate sense, but it's nice to know people are still building cool stuff like this.
