    I bought a largish nylon tool bag to carry the camera, lenses etc. and made some wrappers for the various pieces using 1/4 inch insulation wrapped in cloth and sealed with speed sew. Works just fine, but add it all up and somehow it gets heavy. So I use a jogging stroller to move everything about.
    I wouldn't worry about the levels. Mine are mostly dried out (I have a Toyo 45?) and I just got a level from Lee Valley that's about twice the size of a credit card. It works fine and is easier to see and use than the built-in ones.
    If I had been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better arrangement of the Universe.

    I'm using a Lowepro Computrekker AW to lug my press camera, et al, around. I only have it because I won it in a contest of some sort five years ago and recently reacquired it. There are many packs on the market that might do the job. But plenty of other means are available for the creative in mind.
    Thank you.

    Congrats on the new 4x5 explorations. I have done the same. Yesterday I got my first LF camera, a Toyo 45AII and Nikkor W 150mm/5.6. Need some film holders and BTZS processing tubes, and I will be in business.
