    Mamiya RB67's are super cheap right now, get a body and a lens and a 70mm back, that gives you 50-60 images to a roll, that should be enough, and you can get Kodak portra and B&W 70mm for a decent price. (Cheaper than 220).

    The whole camera can be a throw away, it will be heavy but there's a light meter viewfinder attachment. The most expensive is the 70mm back but even those aren't too bad.

    Plus you can also get 70mm IR400 film and burning man in infra red would be pretty cool. The sun is strong enough you might not even need a tripod during the day.

    Or just use it as 400 B&W

    Best of all its new and cheap from maco.

    Anyway that's my idea, if the body gets destroyed, who cares.

    You do realize that the RB67 weighs like 8 pounds, and is not exactly a small & portable camera, right? It would be nice if I don't need to take 2 or 3 minutes to setup and check the shot before taking it, right?

    Good heavens! An RB67!? Come on, you do need portability at that event, rather than a wagon to tow behind you in the blistering heat...

    Discussed this with friends at lunch today. They've been twice (won't be going again as they had items stolen from their tent). Their digi cameras worked fine but battery life was their main problem with a lot of shooting. The cameras when not in use were stored in Sea to Summit roll-top hypalon bags and carried around like this until there was a good opportunity to use them. Personally I wouldn't take any of my own cameras to Burning Man; I have enough trouble keeping them dust-free in summer at ConFest and Burning Seed here in Australia, and it's nowhere near as severe as BM. Just take a few disposable 35mm cameras (no batteries to worry about) and be done with it.

    Clayne,

    You've obviously never been to burning man, if you put it in 3 ziplock bags, playa dust would still get in the camera, a bag won't help.

    It's heavy but not that bad, and 2-3 minutes?

    I use my RZ67 as a walk around camera all the time handheld...

    You guys need to hit the gym

    It's heavy with the viewfinder I'll give you that, I just use a WLF and have a light meter (spot) on my hip belt. Usually, but still, I do use it to walk around on trips. Hassleblad users do it all the time, it's the same thing just 1 more CM

    Or get an RB67/RZ67.

    I can happily carry one around with a left hand grip over many miles.
