    I was about to comment that I wouldn't need the level.
    Being as I have the Photo Tools Pro iPhone App, that provides
    a horizontal, and vertical level. But I just deleted it accidentally
    from my phone. I always keep an assortment of levels in my box.

    I would be interested in such a camera if it's available as a low
    budget painted, no frills inexpensive version. But the larger knobs,
    and a groundglass with a grid would be helpful for us older folks.

    Ron. I've just sent You a PM.

    Ian C, Moki. All knobs will be in final model more than two times larger in diameter. This one at photographs are temporary. Similar situation is with ground glass. I think the grid is a must.
    Next one camera will be cherry or mahogany wood with polished brass metal elements. Prototype is mixed aluminium and brass. We (I use 'we' because I am not one and only member of the crew) want to offer possibility to choose between classic black or red color of bellows. Thank You for all of suggestions.

    Largely, Moki, David. If we find small, button-like and not neon green bubble level there is possibility we put it on front and rear standard.

    Moki, Steve. I think red and white version is very interesting. I have signals from our friends here in Poland that they also like this combination. So Idea of color version along with classic wood and brass Is good point. Thanks!

    Ulrich. Good point.

    David. In prototype bellows are mounted in permanent way with glue, but we want to give possibility to mount it with screws in final camera. Our main aim is to hit entry level first, but also We all the time thinking about adding custom options for additional fee in future.

    I agree, it needs bigger knobs.

    My fingers hurt just looking at those tiny things.

    Beautiful camera.
    If it is offered at an affordable price, I would definitely be interested.

    Good luck!

    It really needs a reversable back to compete with the Chinese cameras. Other than that, it looks like a champ!

    I really like the white and red too. Most other field cameras are so "same-y", and interesting aesthetics are half the joy of owning a nice creative instrument. I love my Wista, partly because of its beauty, partly because of its functionality...

    John. This camera has reversible back.

    Djacobox372. This knobs are temporary and they are as uncomfortable as they look ;-).

    You can actually see it in both horizontal and vertical positions in the pictures. What does make me wonder is how it is locked in place? I don't see any clear sign of a locking mechanism.
