    The Intrepid website has no information about the 8X10 upgrade. No pictures, no model change.

    I am not ordering one until they supply details to all potential buyers.

    I wood also like to see a 'test' of one from the usual suspects, ASAP!

    Trust me, you will not go wrong with the new 8x10.

    Bear in mind that some of us have had very different experiences with the 8X10 Intrepid, experiences that were not ideal. I'm sure there will be some here who think this is just whining, but when I buy a camera, I do expect certain things, like: the focusing rail mechanism actually works (Entire base had to be replaced), magnets glued into the frame don't pull out when you change the back orientation, the lens board doesn't warp into a banana shape, and pieces don't fall off the camera.

    I was one of those guys who bought an Intrepid 4x5 and an 8x10 at the same time. Frankly, I dislike the 8x10 as much as I like the 4x5, which is a keeper. The 8x10 is flimsy and has soured me on my already negative 8x10 experience. I'll be going back to my 5x7 as my largest camera, and getting rid of all of my 8x10 equipment. It just hasn't worked for me for a variety of reasons but mostly because it's a specialist format that needs a commitment I simply don't have. My Cambo 8x10 is a solid machine so no problems there, but I really can't recommend the Intrepid in 8x10 . . . . it just hasn't the solidity or the design suitablity within the field camera category I was looking for - their 4x5 camera is much better and more a propos within the category, in spite of their family resemblance.

    I think I had the same opinion of the 8x10 Mk I. However, the Mk II seems to be in the right track, that is why ordered mine. Intrepid has taken the comments and reviews of almost everyone to make this second version a real jewel.
