    Talking 15lb 8x10 Studio-in-a-bag

    I'm traveling to NY next week and decided to take the 8x10. So, the question of the day: Can I fit absolutely everything I need into one carry-on tote bag?

    Answer: Yes!

    Contents from left to right in the exploded view: Gitzo travel tripod, camera rails, loupe, Gowland 8x10 on darkcloth, 2 holders, 2 boxes of film, Harrison tent sans poles.

    Total weight, including bag: 15.4 pounds.

    No tripod head or light meter?

    The ballhead is hard to see, but it's on the tripod in the photo, and the DSLR serves as meter

    Assuming you're doing all you can to shave items off the "to pack list", you could leave the ballhead at home and adjust your view by tripod only. Cumbersome but effective.
    Nice job on going portable. I'm looking to do the same with my Ansco 5x7 ... finding a bag that fits all I need. My Seneca is in a small bag, but I lack a portable tripod that fits in a bag. No way is the Majestic crunching down that small!

    As the man on the bag might say, you're one of the heroes; the it-getters! Alpha photographer of the week!

    Haha! I wondered if Colbert's face was readable in that shot; some people who see me walking around compliment me on my Bob Saget bag.

    The ballhead I'm using is very tiny and lightweight, so leaving it off would really be shooting myself in the foot! I would be better off leaving one of those boxes of film at home and really being more careful about the shots I take!

    Will they let you carry-on tripods? If so,how about mono-pods?

    Gale, they don't care about tripods, but they will ask to hand-check virtually any bag with a bunch of camera stuff in it. It just looks pretty sketchy in the X-ray.
