    Climbing the highest European and Russian mountain with a large format camera

    Climbing Elbrus (5621 metres) with a 13x18cm (5x7'') Walker Titan XL camera in September 2018. Also with a Hasselblad and Leica. Only black and white - only hardrock!

    Please click on English subtitles on Youtube.



    Enjoy!

    Great video mamanton!

    Can't believe that you guys humped Elbrus with canned food but when you are young you can do stuff like that. Nowadays it's all freeze-dried for me and even that is too heavy!

    Loved the video! Great to take that 5x7" to the top. Wonderful results!
    I own the gear, but those don't make masterpieces. My everyday experience.

    Mont Blanc is not so high, but the idea is great! I like when the people are living with a passion of something!
