    Aero Ektar 178mm Filter Solution

    Designed something simple to hold two lee filters. Working through a few versions but getting closer. Similar to what 20th century offers but itís like 6 bucks in material vs 200.

    Hence no reason to pay the photo tax... half the bag, twice the cost.

    Better off with brands like Mystery Ranch, Kifaru, Stone Glacier. All American made, insanely overbuilt.

    Good bag for just walking from the car to a shot real close by. That bag will demolish your back if you walk anywhere. Practical for storage, but otherwise a useless bag.

    Best of both worlds... Arca Swiss.

    Itís just a smaller user base due to cost.

    Arca Swiss Bellow Frames

    Re: Are you shooting more than one format

    I've bounced around a bit but seemingly always come back to 8x10... my biggest issue has been navigating some mental issues with nearly all of my mentors being single format people (almost all 8x10).
  37. Re: Arca Swiss 8x10 - The Ultimate Carry Solution

    A friend donated a few Kelty classics locally and they're great for many things but the Arca definitely presents some packing challenges with the 141 frames having bellows extend the frame.
