Intrepid have announced their first ever limited-edition large format camera – the Black Edition Intrepid 4 x 5.
The boutique camera maker, based in Brighton in the UK, announced the new model on Friday (27 March).
Intrepid said: “The first ever limited edition Intrepid 4×5 camera features a sleek new ‘all black’ design.
“Made primarily of high quality 3D-printed parts and anodised aluminium, produced and assembled in-house. The focus is rear controlled for precision, and as on the 4×5 MK4, the front standard movements are fully independent.
“The ideal companion for any situation from the studio to a mountainside, and at just 1kg, you will barely notice the weight.”
Intrepid said the cameras have a building time of approximately two to three weeks after orders are made. They cost £320.
Intrepid also released technical specifications of the new camera.

A great idea – could this be used as an enlarger as well?
