      Such a shame... This is a really deserving project. I will contact you guys again to donate outside of Kickstarter.

      Creator Wayne Eastep on February 1, 2012

      It's rare that we have the chance to see history being made, this is one of those times when the marking of history (the upcoming 200th anniversary of the creation of the camera) is being marked by the making of a one of a kind jaw dropping 4.5 Foot by 6 Foot view camera. The use of this camera to document our unique and rich American culture is a righteous use of such a remarkable creation. I salute Dennis and his team. Go forth, Wayne Eastep
