    The edit feature was gone when I remembered you need something to hold tight what ever you are putting together with epoxy. I carry two small C clamps. This is for a quick fix of small things. Major repairs wait until I am home with a larger range of clamps.

    Two small, lightweight C clamps is a great idea, John. I'm going to have to stop at the hardware store.

    I have 6 film holders, a filter holder with 7 filters (#s 8, 12, 15, 25, 58, 81A, and CP) and 2 step up adapters, a couple pens, a spare pack of cigarettes, meter, loupe, small straight/philips screwdriver, zip strips, and steel clipboard. The clipboard holds my shot record, but has some laminated information. That information is light color, reciprocity information, a Planckian color chart, and my homemade filter/color chart. The filter/color chart shows the scale of colors from 430-720nm with the color gradient, and the data from the book on Wratten filter transmission for each range. This helps me decide what factor to use for each filter based on the color/wavelength and filter transmissions.

    I use a laptop case for all that, and carry my camera separate. I only have 1 lens, so I don't need something to hold more. I'm not hiking far, or climbing mountains, so it's not too bad.

    How do you like your F1? I was considering getting the average no-back-movement folder like the N1, but wondered if I would miss back movements. I am a COMPLETE NEWBIE to LF. All I know is from reading Leslie Stroebel's view camera technique book and Dykinga's LF Nature Photography book, and imagining the geometry of shooting trees, shooting cliffs from close to the base, and so on.

    I've found these items indispensable when shooting at night:

    Red LED light: to set aperture/shutter speed at night and not loose night vision, http://www.gerbergear.com/Tactical/L...light_22-80016

    Green laser pointer: I can point the laser at the subject and focus till the beam is a pinpoint on the ground glass, very helpful in dim light or when using slow lenses. http://www.laserpointerpro.com/2pcs-...en-p-1237.html

    Night vision goggles/monocular: when I need to hike a few miles in the woods at night to get a sunrise shot and general nighttime use. http://tnvc.com/shop/anpvs-14-milspe...al-forces-kit/

    Gerber multitool: A must have! http://www.gerbergear.com/Industrial...-Tool_22-41470

    Chemlites: If I need to mark a hard to find trail out of or into the woodline, just hang them on a tree and they can be seen for a good 300-500 feet. They are also good for keeping in your bag to light it up at night. http://www.emergencyresponderproduct...rchwiroho.html

    I use one of four view camera, all of which are packed in their cases ready to go with a 24 hour notice. There's really nothing special to note regarding items packed. The Camera and it's lens, the required stops, three plate/film holders, a focusing cloth, a stop watch, some wooden clothes clips, a tilt plate & the tripod. The only thing I carry now, that is different from the past, is a piece of sheet-plastic that is about 1.5'x1.5' square. Instead of setting the camera bag in the wet grass/ground, I place it on the sheet instead. Wet camera bags . . . not good.

    It's a great idea. I carry a small tarp in the bottom of my pack as well, it fits in where the rain cover is stored. Keeps your bag and gear dry plus you don't get your back wet when it's time to pack up.

    With a Crown/Speed Graphic or other range finder camera, shine the laser pointer through the eye sight hole of the range finder and focus the spot.
