A couple years ago, Wanderlust put out a pinhole lens for Micro Four Thirds. And now, they’re back with this super cool 4×5 KickStarter camera. The Travelwide is a 4×5 camera meant to be ultra light and yes–shoots 4×5 film. The camera is touted as being lighter than a DSLR and not much larger. There are a couple of different versions. The TravelWide 90 is based on the Schneider Angulon 90mm ƒ/6.8 lens while the Travelwide 65 is based on the Schneider Super Angulon 65mm ƒ/8 lens which is basically a 20mm wide angle equivalent.
It’s much more than just a standard setup though: support bubble levels, viewfinders, rangefinders and flash units, they placed hot shoes around the camera.
The company needs to reach $75,000–and hopefully they’ll do it. 4×5 is positively beautiful and at that size the quality destroys nearly any digital equivalent. Check out their Kickstarter and the video after the jump.
