It interests me, being a Graflex nut, how many folks are using them. My minimalist kit is a 4X5 Pre Anniversary Speed Graphic with 135 Tessar or a 135 Eurynar. It is housed in a small aluminum box with 6 film holders, a set of series VI filters, a magnifying glass and a lens hood. Very compact, about 6X8X12, and light. I always carry an old lightweight tripod in the car and one in the van.
