    It looks like rear tilt would be a very simple thing to add if the plastic part of the rear standard had the necessary threaded inserts built in. You might consider doing that, and also drill the matching holes in the metal supports. This would allow owners to make their own choice regarding stability versus flexibility, and even switch from one configuration to the other to see which they prefer.

    That's more or less my thoughts on how to implement it. I am working on coming up with a solution that wouldn't change the hardware requirements, so people could upgrade/swap over to a system that includes rear tilt for next to nothing. It's super nice to hear you had a similar thought - power in numbers and all that!

    Best of luck! I'm not in the market for a camera but more choice is a good thing.

    Neat looking camera, very tidy. While not in the market I also applaud your effort to share your knowledge and effort with others.

    This is great. I love how you (younger) guys are keeping film and "old" tech alive!! Kudos to you. Hope this will be a great success. Looks like it's pretty sturdy to be carried around.
