  1. Re: My new backpack, Seek Outside Exposure 5000

    Ha, been there, done that--not the worst fate for any of us!:) FWIW, I've got a brother up in The Woodlands, but haven't explored your part of the world very seriously other than a quick trip to Big...
  2. Re: My new backpack, Seek Outside Exposure 5000

    I think the classic weight distribution for externals is light on top, light on bottom, with the dense stuff being placed in the center, closest to your spine--of course you'd want to do several...
  3. Re: My new backpack, Seek Outside Exposure 5000

    That's a neat idea--IIRC, there's a gent here on LFPF who does precisely that: I remember that he's out in Colorado, shoots a lot of tele, but sadly can't remember his screen name. (Perhaps I should...
  4. Re: My new backpack, Seek Outside Exposure 5000

    For myself, I wouldn't hang up on top-loaders vs. panel-loaders as much as I would make sure that I had a big enough pack that I could segregate my minimal 4x5 kit--either in a dedicated camera...

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    Wonderful work--the first especially is evocative...:)
  6. Re: My new backpack, Seek Outside Exposure 5000

    Excellent, I look forward to some more reviews when you put some miles on it!
  7. Re: My new backpack, Seek Outside Exposure 5000

    Excellent, that looks quick to work out of as well.:) BTW, what is your shelter system? I've gone to a Six Moons Lunar Duo, but I must admit that my humid conditions here in the SE can stress even...

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    I definitely keep being more impressed the more I look at this one, especially since it seems to be a scene where contrast could get on the wild-and-wooly side. Did you do much special with the...
  10. Re: Backpacks for 4X5 with 3 small lenses and Chamonix F2

    Excellent, as I said in my original reply, I don't think you'll max out any pack with your current load-out, so hopefully you're set to hit the trail.:) However, if that also applies literally, ;)...
  11. Re: Backpacks for 4X5 with 3 small lenses and Chamonix F2

    Very cool--definitely an "agile" pack it seems.:) FWIW, I've become a fan of Hill People Gear packs--if your days afield involve a bit off-trail scrambling, I haven't come across a better shoulder...
  12. Re: Backpacks for 4X5 with 3 small lenses and Chamonix F2

    +1 on Dana Designs/Mystery Ranch--is that an old Bomb pack? Classic if there ever was one.:) (FWIW, I've got an old Boseman-era Astralplane--don't think the old Arc-flex suspension as ever been...
  13. Re: Backpacks for 4X5 with 3 small lenses and Chamonix F2

    This is a question that gets asked a lot, but I always thought we should take it from a different angle: given your list of possible travel scenarios, what is your minimum load-out for hiking safely...

    Ah, I'm digging this one as well. A question: assuming you were locked in to an "N" development for a 10-frame roll of 120, did you alter your exposure knowing you were going to go "high key," or...

  18. Re: Your Best Photograph from the Previous Month - Critique and Discussion Encouraged
