    A little more Intrepid news (es bueno news)

    So I get an email on my 6th or 7th week wait. And Intrepid says "good news everybody, you are getting the fancy new model!" (please add another 2-4 week wait

    Here are the specs, not yet on the web

    * Notches to zero the front standard
    * A ruled guide for accurate front standard movements
    * Reinforced front standard controls (a weak point of the previous
    model)
    * Stronger ground glass clips
    * A much more refined base design
    * A new stronger locking system to secure the rear standard


    These are things I've seen Youtube Vids complain about so they are listening!

    Hope some of the things can be retrofitted on older models.

    Excellent! Just what I hoped you’d write.

    Thanks.

    Glad to hear it! I've been eying one of these for a possible eventual adventure into 8x10. In 4x5 there are ample good quality used cameras I may go for (my elderly Tech III has been retired, tired of fooling with it) or even a new Chamonix is not THAT much, but new 8x10s other than the Intrepid - well, an Intrepid is do-able new. Anything else, not, and the used selections are older and generally more a lot more heavily used than I'd like, at least in the price range of the new Intrepid.

    so far, it looks like the website still shows the mark II - hopefully they will update that soon, I'd like to see the changes - and will they offer a black or hardwood version of the new 8x10

    2 weeks ago I got the canned email that said I'm on the 6th week. This Friday will be the 8th week. Was expecting original to be this week or so? But when they upgraded me, they said "add to 2-4 more weeks ADDED to original timeline. So I'll update again at end of month. I expect I'll get the canned email this Friday for my 8th week. It's just a generic email, doesn't have lots of details or details about the new model.
