When I joined APUG a few months ago I learned of you and your plans to build a new camera system. I was very excited to see how things turned out for you, and have quietly watched in the background, read and re-read the threads documenting your problems, and waited very anxiously.
This new thread speaks volumes to your dedication to a quality product, and also being an individual with integrity.
I am sure your venture will have a few more pratfalls (give me a project worth doing that doesn't...), but you have shown the tenacity to succeed.
I have been looking for a 12x20 for a couple of years, but have recently switched my interest to 7x17.
I will hopefully be one of the early ones to sign up and pay for one of your cameras soon.
Best of luck!
