Ben said that, just for asking, they will also ship the 65mm front plate to backers who ordered the 90 version. This means that with a screwdriver and a little effort you could convert the 90 to a 65mm pin hole camera, and then switch back to the 90 if desired. Quite a sweet deal for those who backed the project.
    I don't disagree with you, just pointing out that the Titan comes with a few extras that have monetary value.

    You also buy into the quality of Ilford, Harman, and Walker cameras.

    But either way, yes, the Travelwide looks very appealing. I'm already thinking about what to do with my tax refund...

    I already have the 90mm Angulon and backed the TW. Got my cheap but adequate Israeli viewfinder laying right here on my desk. Just waiting patiently for my camera.

    They just posted another update today regarding progress. It's looking like they're pretty close to assembly and delivery, but it may still be June/July before they ship.

    Which is pretty much what I figured all along given the complexity of this project. People set optimistic time goals because they're swept up with enthusiasm, and no doubt feel pressured to make the goal as early as possible to encourage backers, but then reality happens.

    I'll be happy to have it whenever it does show up; I just wish it could have been here in time to demo it for my Intro to Large Format class. Actually, I really wish it could have been here in time to take to Paris as a dedicated wide-angle camera, last October, but obviously THAT didn't happen.

    At least it looks like it'll make it by the September trip to the Grampians!

    Now I just gotta decide what to do with lenses. The 90SWD probably won't fit, so it's either SA90 on the wrong shutter with guesstimated aperture markings, or the 90 Angulon (keep one, sell the other, leave the SWD for the Toyo).
    I scored a centre filter for my 65SA the other day for only $50, definitely getting the 65 kit...
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    I wonder how hard it would be to modify it to fit a Graflex film magazine or a Polaroid 405 holder...

    I should have checked the website, question answered!

    Can I attach a Grafmatic / Roll film holder / other holder?
    Yes, most likely. The Travelwide features a standard international 4×5 back. You may need to unscrew the spring back and use ball bungees or heavy rubber bands to attach the camera to the holder.
