    Hello from Holland

    Hello everybody,

    since I/m new to LF photography (and this forum) let me frist introduce myself: I'm Francois and a photofanatic for ages, done virtually everything exept....LF. So a few months ago I puchaced a second Sinar F2, WAUW.... you can do really great stuff with it.
    Next month I'm off to Iceland, and that;s where the troubel begins:
    -how to get my (bulky) camera and tripod overthere (shipping it of seperately, or simple regards as air luggage and see what happens..)
    -anybody having recent experiences in Schiphol and Reyjavik related to x-raying of filmmaterial...??????


    Hope to get some answers, and ofcource I will share my expercience one back from Iceland.

    regards


    Francois

    Welcome Francois!
    What an adventure!
    I took a 4x5 on a flight to Hawaii awhile back---I carried the camera, film, changing bag and holders in my carry on (they all fit into a day pack) and checked the tripod with my luggage.
    Everything went alright.
    Have a great trip!
    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.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Thanks John,

    but I'm afraid I'll have to choose: on my Iceland trip I'm planning to taking with me:

    -nikon D300 + 5 lenses
    -hasselblad 553 ELX + lenses
    -Sinar F2 + 2 lenses
    -two tripods
    -a number of unavoiable things like underwear and socks...

    However: did get some good results from your Hawaii trip ? I'd like to go there myself ones.

    regards

    Hoi Francois,

    So you are new to LF photography as well? Maybe we can get together since you live in Maastricht as well. I take it you have a 4x5 camera?

    Groet,

    Peter

    He Peter,

    sorry, I do not live in Maastricht, both my parent were born there and I spend quite a lot of time in my youth in Maastricht (at present I do have about 50 family member living there)... so I do understand Mesteerchs (and when drunk, feel able to speak up in that beuatifull language)....... All the same, of course we can meet, I do visit Maastricht rather frequnetly.....


    cheers
