I don’t recall how I came by this kickstarter.com post, but I remember knowing it needed bookmarking and sharing, both for kickstarter’s way of getting projects off the ground and the monster camera San Diego based photographer Tim Mantoani’s using. As a fan of medium and large formats I’d love to see what my father would do with such a beast.

Kickstarter looks to have done its job nicely, as of November 6th the site says “This project will be funded on Saturday Nov 12, 1:51pm EST.” yet  also shows “$16,005 pledged of $10,000 goal”.

The camera is massive, as you’d expect for something that takes photos on Polaroid film 2 foot tall!
