    Perhaps they thought, “If they haven’t purchased one by now, they’re probably not going to”? Seems a reasonable business plan to me. Manage for the rule, not the exception.

    I agree. Let's keep our expectations in line with what we know of Intrepid's mission, providing low cost large format cameras. Keeping parts and accessories for old models for an extended time has a cost. Probably prohibiting for the mission.
    You pay for what you get, not only in build and quality but also in long term support and availability of older models. Not negatively reflecting on Intrepid in my view (and I own a 4x5 and is pleased with it).

    I agree. I own a version 1 (Kickstarter) 4x5" and its very crude compared to their latest version - I wouldn't expect them to carry upgrades to that with their business model, and when I'm brave enough I'll probably have a crack at modifying it myself. It's only plywood after all (and I have the Wista should it all end in tears)...
