    I recently purchased an Intrepid 4x5 MK4 camera.
    When folding the camera, the screws on the lensboard clip press the edge of the focusing bed.
    So there was a crush marks on the edges of the bed.
    Has anyone experienced this problem?
    And is this normal?

    I experienced a little of same on one side. Since then, I haven't folded but maybe once more, just kept it open and covered since. Then I forgot about it till you sent this. I meant to check whether it was related to how everything was dialed in prior to folding. Now I'm away for a week, just me and my Crown Graphic. Interested in whether you can determine if it is related to how it is adjusted prior to folding. And others' input. Thanks for raising.

    I think the screws should be inside the lensboard clip like Chamonix.

    Aha! Intrepid is very responsive. I wonder what they'd say. Bummer.

    I wanted to ask other users if this was normal.

    I canít imagine any manufacturer designing a camera where this would be common or normal. After all, wasnít it folded when you first received it and, if so, were there already crushed areas?

    I don't remember exactly.
    But I felt something strange when I folded the camera.

    Yes, I agree. That's why I said earlier that I assumed I must have refolded with the settings not being adjusted properly. Then, due to a change in my short-term priorities, I got a Crown Graphic and set my Intrepid aside for the moment. But my gut says the cause was my folding steps.
