As an extension to a question I asked previously regarding how you use LF camera s in the field:
I want to mount my 5x7 view on my tripod, fit the legs with foam padding, and ca rry the camera and tripod balanced at the fulcrum point on my shoulder while I m ove from place to place. I may close the camera bed while doing this.
I'm trying to avoid the tedious delays in breaking down and setting up the camer a every time I want to use it.
Other than the possibility of the camera falling off the tripod (which I will tr y to double secure), does anyone see any serious problems in using this method.
I did this with a heavy MF camera (RB67) and there is almost no weight at all wh en balanced correctly.
Anyone use this method?
