    9x12 inch stiffened felt squares from Joann’s Fabric Store.

    Kunin Stick’rz is the latest brand name I’ve seen at Joann’s. Michael’s has a similar product under the Creatology brand name.

    Thanks, I have found Joann's to be a very good and local source for many LF needs

    McMaster has some interesting felt too

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    I’m still exploring options. I have a quilted bag a fabric artist friend made for me. The camera fits nicely inside, there is an external pocket for film holders, and I just bought a large nylon duffle that protects the art quilted bag. This will be fine for working near my vehicle.

    The duffel also has a shoulder strap. I checked the weight today and the camera (sans lens) in the quilted bag and duffle is only 14 pounds. Easy enough to carry with the shoulder strap for short distances.

    Here is a link to the duffel:https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I also bought this pocket waterproof blanket to put on the ground to organize gear for unloading/loading:

    I liked the duffle so much I bought the smaller 50L size to carry film holders.

    Six years and six months from starting this thread....

    This was my first time getting the camera out of the house, lens and GG on, and getting to see what the world looks like on 12x20 and 8x20. Just a quick 5 min walk from my back door, carrying the Ries A100 pod with the A200 steel head on one shoulder, the camera slung around to my back in the ripstop duffle, and a case with the 8x20 reducing back in my other hand.

    The camera works fine, and I think I will enjoy using it very much. Having started out in 8x10 with a Kodak 2D, using this camera feels like coming home. However, my 11x14 BTZS Focus Hood is no match for this camera. I will be happy when my 12x20 BTZS hood arrives!

    The Turner Reich Series II No. 6 lens seems to cover 12x20 well, and stopped down to f22 or so, everything looked good, or at least as well as I could tell with half a focus hood.

    Didn't have too much time, as a storm was moving in. Within 30 minutes, the ground was completely white, covered in hail.

    Great!

    Slow work is best!

    I have restored motorcycles by doing something on it EVERY DAY for 15 minutes

    Amazing, but it works

    Your last image looks more like 8x20. Is that what it is?

    Yes, the last image shows the 8x20 reducing back I made as an accessory.
