    Impressive work, thanks for the reference, I did not know her.

    Sounds like a great plan.. Be mindful of the shaking anyway. I don't have hard evidence, but since I started to take my lenses on the bike, two of them started to fail (an old dagor jammed, and perhaps also a newer Fujinon is showing some issues with the T mode). I think they were in need of a CLA and the general harsher conditions on the bike ride accelerated the process..

    The "lightweight" setup is discussed in another video (link).
    Cool Video, Marcookie!!

    I spent 5.5 months (1986) on a bicycle with a 4x5 and a relatively new Caltar IIN 150/5.6. About 2200 miles on the bike with the camera. Miles (days) on of gravel roads, etc. Fortunately no issues with the lens...still using it without a CLA, though not much these past years as the camera is a bit small. I spent a lot time routinely tightening all the bolts, etc on the bike, though!

    These are pricey, but I'd get rid of a car...

    Nice video, great editing.

    I grew up there - is that the bridge across the Allegheny to Lawrenceville? I had to look at a Bridges of Pittsburgh website to research it - there are so many.

    I've always hoped that carrying sensitive equipment (laptop, cameras) on my back on the bike is a little better than carrying it in panniers or a trailer, because of the extra suspension of my body.

    Maybe a recumbent Trike? More stable than a bike and seems as if it would be easier towing a small bike trailer as well. Some look as if they are designed for rough roads and should last.

    Prices for good ones seem high - more than I paid for a very good Ford F150 4x4 SuperCab(used).

    Maybe you could use the seat post for a tripod column :-) I've got a 1970's vintage Campagnolo seat post that has a heck of a clamp
    27.2mm if I remember correctly.
    Seriously, beautiful shots.
