    New article: What's inside QT Luong's general purpose camera bag

    Inspired by Tuan's great article, I've added a page to my website which shows, in gory detail, what I schlep around.

    It's at http://www.butzi.net/articles/largeformatkit.htm

    This is an amazing thread. I especially love seeing how other folks have attacked the problems of hauling gear around.

    New article: What's inside QT Luong's general purpose camera bag

    When experienced professionals like Tuan Luong and Kerry Thalmann do extended articles on some aspect of LF techniques and technology, they fill a knowledge gap seldom addressed by equipment manufacturers. This thread and Kerry's extended review of the Toho Shimo FC-45X are vivid examples.

    I am impressed with the forethought and high-tech containers described in this thread. It seems that many who responded do their work in remote locations where backpacks are the only reasonable way to move equipment. I do most of my work in towns and cities where I face a different set of carrying needs and some security issues not typically encountered in the mountains. I've outlined my strategy on one of my sites.

    You might call this strategy "champagne taste on a beer budget".

    QT Luong, I just saw your photos online and can't believe the colour that you get on them. I swore for a time that it was digital but it's not. Reckon large format film deliveres better colour shades than digital up to maybe 14mpx.

    Hi Amund,

    I agree. He hasn't seen original color transparencies or large drum scans and output from Chromira/ LightJet/Lambda printers from color transparencies and negatives.

    Love the article and love 5X7, what I'd give for a 5X7 Canham. I have the Schneider 210 and it's really a great lens.

    QT- Im curious as to why you have/use both the 110 XL SS and the Nikkor 90/8?- I personally own both and am considering selling the Nikkor as I dont see an advantage to keeping both these lenses for 4x5 work- are there any situations where you take both into the field?
