    A viewfinder like a TLR but 35 mm type film camera?

    A plastic 35mm SLR that kinda looks like a lomography-fied Nikon F1 with a waist level viewfinder.

    A 35mm DIY TLR like the Holga TLR: i436.photobucket.com/albums/qq88/khloe3074k/holga_tlr4.jpg?… maybe with masks: square, 4:3, sprockets, ...

    The more I look at the silhouette the more worried I get that there won't be a flash hot shoe on it, or it might have a non-standard connector like the Diana flash or the Fritz

    A dual format 35mm & 120 waist level finder Sprocket Rocket type camera.

    Let's hope it will take interchangeable lenses so you can stick the Belairgon glass on it!

    @clickiemcpete In a perfect world I'd like it if it was just 35mm and was M42 mount. Keeping one format would hopefully make it cheaper for us to buy, and having an M42 mount would mean LSI don't have to worry about making their own lenses as much, as there are loads of M42 lenses available if you look around.

    I also believe that it is a TLR version of the sprocket rocket! :)

    i think it's a looky downy slr thingy. like the Ihagee EXA... but DIY obviously, and probably sprockety

    I'm thinking DIY Ihagee Exakta-Kamera inspired camera. This should be interesting. It will be even more interesting if it can use interchangeable lenses. It will also be the only DIY camera with a swing mirror of which I know. This is definitely not a TLR because there's only one lens mount. This type of viewfinder in an SLR is simply called a waist-level viewfinder. It does seem to have a rewind lever which implies 35mm, but I think I saw a frame counter window in the silhouette of the parts which would imply medium format. Interesting. I guess we just have to wait and see.
