    A Peak Inside Intrepid's Large Format Camera Factory

    Hello, I thought a few of you might be interested in seeing inside our factory, a few people from this forum have come for a visit but obviously being on the south coast of the UK does limit access for some of you! The video is only short and to show our new 5x7, maybe we will do a full video tour one day.

    Thank you for posting that. I love seeing workshops in use and don't even care what's being made. In this case, however, I'm getting a serious case of G.A.S. That's one very nice set up you have going there and I really like the end product.

    The plywood makes it look cheap and home made. However, the special black edition makes it look like a camera twice the price. Are people buying the black one?

    Not a lot wrong with wood as a material used for building a camera. Depending on the wood used, it can be remarkably strong, resilient to damage, tough, lightweight and dimensionally stable. These are the same reasons why aircraft and LOTs were made of wood. To believe metal is alway superior to wood is ignorant of the strength and weaknesses of both. Materials used to make stuff should depend on design requirements, not simple perception alone.

    Encouraging to see LF cameras being made on this scale.

    Nothing wrong with wood but I was looking at the edges of the wood where the laminations are seen. A little bit of veneer to cover that would make the camera look like one twice the price in my opinion. That is constructive criticism, by the way. I'm glad to see a film camera on the market. In fact, if they were making this ten years ago when I got into 8x10, I'd have one. Though I do prefer the special black edition.
