A friend of mine in our local LF group is trying to put together the ultimate lite weight LF (4X5) outfit. For example, he's selecting a focusing aid based on which one is 1/2 an ounce less weight than another. He's looking for the historically smallest lenses at various mm sizes. He's entertaining ideas such as a combination tripod/hiking sticks where you take two legs off for hiking sticks and only pack the remaining leg and the head. Using dark cloth for lens wrapping. Taking plastic bags to fill with dirt as weights to offset really light tripod. Also, a combination camera backpack/portable changing room. Possibly using sheet film with only two film holders, rather than a ton of ready loads. The idea is less weight, cost and time aside. If you have any ideas about the best lite weight equipment, or ANY ideas about how to pack and make things super light, let's share. No wild ideas are unwelcome. Thanks.
