The Intrepid 4x5 is an analog large format camera that sells for just $200

The Intrepid 4×5 Large Format Field Camera will definitely get the attention of analog photography enthusiasts. Especially at the $208 (£129) price tag, it is an incredible steal.

The Intrepid does little to innovate how its vintage predecessors function. The creators just wanted a camera that takes great photos in the legitimate old-fashioned way. As they pointed out, the Intrepid 4×5 is not an an instrument of convenience but of art.

Because of the high-quality plywood used to make the the camera, it weighs just around 1.2 kg, which makes it very portable, spare the bulky size. The design makes it look more like a period film prop than a functioning camera. The bellows (the midsections that look like accordions) comes in black, red, blue and green.
