    5x7
    Speed Graphic with 203 Ektar in situ, a black tee shirt & five holders in a Jansport Equinox daypack with a Tiltall strapped on board(if I want the luxury of a tripod) and some Wratten series something or other filters.
    8x10
    Gowland aerial focused for infinity with a 300 M Nikkor and one (1) film holder riding inside and a lightmeter 'round my neck (with only two shots I want to be certain of the exposure) a Tiltall Junior and seperate cable release (if I need a tripod) A few filters borrowed from my Nikon SLR. If I need more than one filmholder I can fit five or maybe six in the Jansport Equinox
    12x20
    You're joking, right?
    8x10 Deardorff
    Camera, with 240 G Claron reversed and folded inside carried in one hand, Ries tripod in the other. Light meter & loupe around the neck, extra film holders, filters & dark cloth in a Jansport Equinox(unless I either need a lot of them or maybe one free hand for support, then the 'dorff and film holders ride in GI surplus 5 gallon water cooler with a shoulder strap, but man that gets heavy!)
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.

    Boy I sure was a wise-ass back in 2008.

    Gee, maybe there should be an "extreme" "reality" TV show about LF photography. They could hire some bozo like Peter Lik.

    My mini kit is a Tech IV, Kodak Ektar 120 (the lens), small Manfrotto tripod, Grafmatic and a cable release.

    I don't play the piano, I don't have a beard and I listen to AC/DC in the darkroom. I have no hope as a photographer.

    My minimal back when this thread started was a Tachihara camera, G Claron 150mm lens or Schneider APO Symmar 210mm lens, Peak loupe, and two film holders carried in a little shoulder bag designed for a 35mm camera. Pentax digital spot Meter on belt, Gitzo 1325 tripod over shoulder.

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you do criticize them you'll be
    a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    I'll do it. But it has to be filmed in IMAX.

    Any reality show worth it's salt, especially if it's got to get young people into photography, has to have overtired drunken brawls (or catfights) Plenty of divisive issues to spill bad beer over; cindy sherman, pyro developer choices, bokeh, kodak versus ilford, perhaps some matlab calculus to show why wooden tripod are better than aluminum/carbon, etc...
