The Travelwide would be perfect for getting started, when it gets started.
They have raised so much money for the project, that it might be possible for
them to get it distributed sooner than expected, I'm being optimistic.
The next option, if you are looking for a low budget entry:
A Toyo Omega View Camera, that's on a monorail, a bit bulky, a bit heavy, but usually
more affordable than a folding field style camera. For landscapes, a 90mm lens would be a great choice, and the 210mm lens are usually available at
a great price if you're interested in doing portraits. A sturdy tripod, a box of film, some film holders, and a cable release will get started with the basics. and then you can get a focusing cloth, or use a light jacket. Then you can buy, or make a focusing loupe if you decide to get more involved. And you should consider getting a copy of " Using The View Camera " by Steve Simmons.
