    How about the whole groundglass? Try it. Make a film exposure and make a cell phone exposure of your groundglass. Compare. Trying things yourself versus asking questions is part of LF learning.

    When I want to go light, I use a Benro C227n6 with a RRS BH30 ballhead. Together they weigh four pounds. It’s a nice Gitzo-like CF tripod. I like it even better for medium format.
