    At 75, I started 4x5 LF this year and my back is giving out. My heavy medium format kit isn't helping the situation either.

    My biggest anxiety when shooting film is that something will happen and I'll not get a usable shot, whether due to a light leak, a shutter mishap, or similar. I don't have a lot of time to do LF photography at the moment, and wasting time, effort and money is a sadness. I haven't shot my 8x10 since my last outing, where light leaks ruined all but one shot due to a camera fault.
    May tomorrow be a better day.

    It's not anxiety, but concern. As I approach 92 years in the next month, I find it harder to carry the equipment and get it on a tripod. I also don't have the energy to make more than 3 or 4 negatives per day.
