    That's a pretty neat setup for carrying the 8x10" Norma, bearing in mind that there are no filmholders in the pack. I don't think I'd want to be lugging my 8x10" Sinar P on my back.

    Packing the Sinar is a snap. Disconnect the bellows at one end. Rotate the front and rear standards until they are parallel to the rail, lock them down and place in a padded backpack. My Norma has many miles on it this way. When being transported in the car it is in its original hard case.

    It's form a French photographer using it's Norma 8x10 in the filed packed in a Decathlon rope backpack (for people climbing...) to pack it up.
    The backpack is nice, cost about 50 € and has a removable sheet of plastic which is usefull to lay on the grass before unpacking cable releases or filters... Last but not least, it open from the back, so you won't put the part which goes on your back into the mud or wet grass....
    I own one, just missing the 8x10 Norma back and bellows ;-)
    P.S. the lens case is made from plywood glued and nailed.
    Yep, thats the genious way I have been looking for backpacks that will zip all the way but most of don't. What kind of pack is tha? where do I get one.
    Kind regards

    Søren,

    How rough is the terrain that you will travel? If it is climbing I can’t help you. If trails and fields you might look at a babyjogger. http://babyjogger.com/performancesingle.htm Mine has 20 inch wheels and 100 pound capacity shock absorbers. I bought it to carry my Technikardan 45, but it has worked as I moved up to 8x10 and 7x17. The film holders go under the seat. A bag of lenses and stuff goes in the seat. The camera mounted on the tripod rests on top with tripod spikes through the foot plate and camera held in place with bungy cord.

    An alternative is a bicycle trailer. http://babyjogger.com/trailermain.htm
    I chose the jogger because the bike speed and distance is a little too hard on the Labrador Retriever who goes as my assistant and body guard while under the cloth.

    How about a Husky
    Well in fact we do have a bicycle trailer, a Burley D'lite, and I'm planing to use that for town tours. actually a front wheel can be mounted making it a baby jogger
    The terrain here in Dk is relatively flat (except for "Moens klint") but we may encounter narrow tracks and places unsuitable for wheeled carriages + There might not be room for such equipment when driving to more remote locations.
    Kind regards

    My pack is an internal frame pack made for camping/hiking. I have had it several years. I have another similar which will zip closed with my 7x17 Korona. They were not made for cameras, but for clothes, etc.

    i was tickled by the the thought of carrying my new monorail in a leather catalog case. detach the bellows, swing the standards flat, and put it all in a snazzy korchmar.

    Hi Søren!
    The Decathlon brand has many shops in different countries. Have a look here :
    http://www.decathlon.com/new/en/010_...0-10_home.html
    The bag is the Vuarde it is made in two sizes, the 30 liters which is nice for a Norma in 4x5 (I've to test it in 5x7) and in 40 liters size, which is the one pictured above with the Norma in 8x10.
    http://www.decathlon.fr/FR/vuarde-30-3106709/
    Hope this helps !
    BTW, I'm unable to store the Norma with it's two standards one above the other on the base rail. In my 5x4, either the rear standard or the front one are at an acute angle, and in the case of the rear standard, it touches the front one on a single line making me anxious about the wear and longevity of the paint.
    I really prefer to assemble it on the shortest rail availlale with the bellow totally compressed. it is a really small package ! Of course, one can buy the original Sinar case and the backstrap device making it into a backpack ....

    Thanks George
    That was what I was looking for. Now I also have the Vuarde 40 on my wishlist.
    Kind regards
