    Very, very good pack.
    Ari, besides the Cooke, what are the other two lenses?

    Thumbs up Re: camera bag for 8x10

    Choice of bag for me is determined by:

    How much stuff to take

    How organised do I need to be (according to amount of stuff)

    How far to walk

    For me the Photobackpacker system has changed everything for the better. It works differently from the usual camera backpack in that it is a suspension system rucksack, similar to those used by serious hikers and mountaineers, but inside it has a looped backing board onto which with hook panels (Velcro style hook and loop) you hang padded boxes that protect your equipment. I bought one a while ago for 8x10 and liked it so much I bought another for my whole plate set up.

    Easy to cope with extra stuff if needs be.

    Very organised indeed. (As a chaotic person by habit this system gently imposes order, with a SAFE place for everything and everything in its SAFE place.)

    The system fits so perfectly to the torso that it feels as though one is carrying less than is really the case. This reduces fatigue and/or increases range.

    Just saw this now, Alan.
    There's a Sinaron-W 210 and a Schneider 150 XL.

    I had a Photobackpacker custom case made for my Ritter... it works, but it really tests the bag. The width of the Ritter is JUST wide enough that is basically looks like the bag is pushed to its extreme dimensions. When carried it looks like a giant rectangle on my bag, there is no play, just hard angles. It fits my glass, supplied by Bruce for 2 6x6 lenses. All in all the bag is amazing, weight distribution is amazing and it blows the pants off the f64 XL.
