Guy B, sleeping in the upper bunk, lept out of bed in the morning, full of motivation to go out and shoot 10 shots to beat Ansel Adams, and put his heel through guy A's GG, which formed an effective photographer trap, the various shards of glass around the central hole digging into his heel and preventing him from removing same. You could say that the moral of this story is - fit an acrylic screen if you don't want to be taken to A&E with an LF camera stuck on your foot. On the scale of things, this is considerably less embarrassing than a vacuum cleaner stuck to your **** (I speak only from hearsay evidence), but still an experience you might prefer to avoid.

I think I'll give it a go.
Thanks all for the reply's.
