    Why should they be Nutcases 20 x 24 is a fine format Kenro Izo has been mentioned and many 19th century photographers used what we now consider Mammoth Formats, we are so accustomed to small Formats that we forgot that not so far in the past 4x5 was considered a small amateur format and 35mm wasn't even a consideration for a pro.

    I would bring it to a different place than that..
    Yup, it's a Ritter. The film holder likely weighed almost as much as the camera.

    Longest I carried my 5x7 was 2 miles on flat pavement in the Keys and did 3 exposures.....I had my girlfriend carry some film holders to lighten the load, I also had a 5D d*****l and ultra-wide with me.

    Was worth it despite dropping the lens and lensboard and having my shutter buy the farm, if I can't sort it out this week it will be in the hands of one of our trusty members.
