The weight of large format equipment can create a lot of headaches (and backache s) as well as a lot of discussion on this forum. I have a functional but well wo rn field camera that looks terribly overbuilt.
In an effort to reduce weight, has anyone been bold enough to literally dr ill and/or carve on the framework of a camera? Were the rusults what you expecte d? Is the name "Arca Swiss-Cheese" copyrighted?
