    Anywhere from 1lb (Zeiss Ikon Nettar or similar) to 30lb (full 4x5 outfit). The 4x5 rarely goes walkies which me up any steep hills (or more than a mile or so on the flat) - a job at which the Nettar excels...

    Cheers, Bob.

    I always try to take only the absolutely "necessary" material, but it seems I always end up taking everything!

    Cheers

    My "package" of equipment always is the same and all travels with me in the car. It's about 150lbs/68Kg.

    Now don't get me wrong, i don't try to carry all that crap. if i must backpack in somewhere it's about 45 lbs. but thats a much more restrictive set of tools, and only what i think will be needed. And i only shoot 4x5 for what thats worth.

    25 lbs is usual for me. That includes the pack, all the photography stuff (6 holders - 2 lenses), rain gear, and a 9 lb tripod. In winter the pack gets heavier as the temperature drops.

    Like Peter, I use only 4x5

    Last phototrip, about 0.2kg: Bessa-L with 21mm lens.

    Next phototrip, probably about 80kg: 9 LF cameras from 6.5x9cm to 30x40cm, holders for all and more, two tripods (unless I find the third), about 20 lenses...

    I keep packing until my wife stops yelling and stands in front of the van with her arms folded....

    In July that meant my 4x5 Crown Graphic with 8 film holders, my 124G, my Minolta X700 w/ two lenses and my 450 si with 1 lens, tripod, light meter, about 10 pounds of various film....Oh, and my son wanted to bring his manual 35 too...

    ...she made me go back and pack the digital camera, so that she could use something...hehehehe...

    My 4x5 kit including pack and film holders is 7kgs, and another 4 for the tripod (I swear it doesn't weigh that much!). I can get to some pretty good spots with that little weight.

    My street walkabout kit consists of a Yashica TLR and a few rolls of film in my pockets, so less than 1kg.
