  1. Re: A good find on a fanny pack to carry 5x7 film holders in field

    Cool!

    I lucked into a zippered bag on a wide strap over the shoulder. The dang thing can swing round awkwardly when I am not moving on flat ground. The upside is that it does swing around to my...

  3. Re: How to keep film ending up wrong side of dark slide after exposing

    My last backpack trip (solo) I took the 5x7 and 9 holders. Twenty-seven and a half pounds of camera gear. Six pounds of food (two nights). But a relatively easy hike (but mostly up a creek without a...

    The OP is not checking to make sure the film is under both rails. After sliding the film in, use ones fingers to check for the end of the rails. If you can't feel the end of the rails, the film is...

    Re: What did you compose at Waters Edge?

    Just posted this over on the 5x7 thread, but it sort of belongs here, although I was not quite on the creek's edge...more out in it, but I suppose a small island of gravel has water edges, too.

    Re: Paracord uses

    I should -- handy for pulling back and securing branches that are 'getting in the way' of the camera's view in the forest. Usually just hand-holding them back is enough, though.

    Those cam handles can break if excessive force is used. One of the reasons these cameras were not successful as loaners to students where I worked.
