    Nice looking camera and a great review video from Matt Marrash.

    Welcome and congratulations. I offer one comment, which you will hopefully take as constructive and not critical, as you enter this market.

    Textiles tend to absorb and hold odors. While some people like the smell of pipe smoke, others, who have very sensitive olfactory systems, might be put off by them. Please consider not smoking when making/installing bellows in your cameras. Thank you for listening.

    The camera is of high interest to me. It appears to be well-built, but not too heavy. I like the long bellows, and almost unlimited front movements.
    I will be looking for the announcement of the price.

    Look up eBay listing 255905297774 (8x10" Large Format Camera - FASQUEL CAMERA), 3900 euros.
