Amazingly Affordable 4x5 Camera
When was the last time you bought a camera for less than $100? When was the last time you bought a film camera—much less a 4x5 large format film camera—for less than the cost of the film? Now you can do both of those things by pitching in to the Kickstarter campaign of the fellows behind the Travelwide 4x5 camera. This lightweight point and shoot uses standard 4x5 film and film backs, and with the addition of your own 65 or 90mm LF lenses, you've got a fully functional travel point and shoot camera that utilizes large format film. And while $99 is the earlybird price, it's only good for the next couple of days (the last in this already super successful Kickstarter campaign). After that, you'll have to wait until the camera goes into production, at a price yet to be determined.
