    OP - did you ever do that video review of the camera? If so, please point me in the right direction!

    I purchased one of these cameras a couple of months ago and am, at the early stage, very happy with it. It's not the most solid camera in world when set up but I haven't used any other light 8x10 cameras before so I don't have any comparisons. The only comparison I have is with my previous Toyo 810G and that's a little unfair, stability wise. I like the fact that the back slides forward to enable accommodation of very wide lenses without having the rails in the image. I can even get my 90mm Nikkor 4x5 lens on it. GG is pretty coarse but I put a fresnel over it and it's fine. Also, the back is not reversible; this would be a very worthwhile modification by the manufacturer. So, at this early stage, everything seems fine.

    Here's a couple of photos taken with it using a Super Angulon 165 and Portra 160NC...

    Not reversible? You have to turn the camera up on its side to shoot a vertical?

    That's a complete deal killer for me in any view camera. Reversible or rotating, one or the other.

    That can't be right. It'd be silly.

    I went and looked at the web photos and the last photo shows the rear frame with the back removed. It looks like they built it as a horizontal-only camera, like the ultralight Phillips.

    Yet if they intended this to make it simpler and to save weight, why didn't they make the entire rear frame and bellows smaller to match?

    Rumors rumors rumors.....
    The back on the 8x10 Wilderness camera that I have in my possession is completely and easily reversible for horizontal and vertical formats. It is a very sturdy well made back on a very sturdy well made camera. It is a very modest sized camera for an 8x10 - feels more like a big 5x7 or whole plate camera.

    Would you kindly tell us a little bit more about it?
