Marquardt International Pinhole - The 4x5" Large Format Pinhole Camera, Hand-Made in Germany
News (Jun 5 2014) - Nine Down, One To Go
Making the MIP has been an exciting journey and we thank you all for being part of it! Since its release in April, nine of the ten hand-made one-of-a-kind MIPs have been sold. There is only one camera left from the first production run of ten: MIP serial #7 (Service Tree).
Thanks to all of you who believed in this project from the start and who helped make it a success! After MIP #7 has been sold, we will take a deep breth and start planning the future of the MIP.
Some of our early thoughts are to make the camera more modular, so instead of selling you the whole package (camera body, box, pinhole, strap, cassette) we might offer all the parts separately, so if you don't want to get the transport & presentation box, you can go with the camera body itself. This will bring the price down and make it more accessible to more people.
Again, these are early thoughts, and I can't guarantee we'll do it this way, but I'd love to hear from you with any ideas! A second production run will take at least two months, probably more, so there's time for your inputs to make a difference! Let me know your thoughts at email@example.com
The Service Tree is native to Europe, its fruits are used as a component of a cider-like drink. The long-lived tree is known to get 400 years and older and its wood is characterised by its beautiful tones.
