Oxford: Intrepid 10×8 street portraits – part 1

Written by Nasir Hamid on August 23rd, 2022

The Intrepid 10×8 is the lightest 10×8 camera I own and after you add the weight of a lens, film holders, tripod, light meter, dark cloth, loupe and rucksack it’s on the limit of what I can comfortably cycle with. Here are the street portraits I made on my first trip into town with this kit. On the first shot I used a little front swing to bring both people into focus – the first time I’ve done this.

[Tech info:] Intrepid 10×8, 300mm f6.3 Komura lens, Fomapan 100 (expired), developed in HC110 1+63 for 10mins.

    How do you like the 8×10 Intrepid? I am
    tempted by the light weight as a more
    convenient option to carry around.

      Hey Jan, I really enjoy using the Intrepid as a lightweight option but you need to use it carefully. You get what you pay for in terms of light weight and build quality but it’s certainly a very capable camera. Your back will thank you for it.
