Or maybe you were talking about installing a bag bellows and forgetting to secure the clip at the bottom to the front standard? How about pulling the darkslide and hearing "THUNK" as the film fell out of the holder into the camera? Oh yes, lest we forget... How about shooting with an empty holder!?

    Nah... Large format is absolutely FOOLPROOF!

    hehehe

    I was laugh so hard, my co-worker think something went wrong with me.

    Here is my story. It was a foggy day, and there were some swans in the bay, the pier was covered with fog, dreamy scene, I had thousands of pictures in my head, so, before the inspiration runs out, I just started shooting like crazy... When everything calmed down, I just realized I had only 10 shots left on the roll, how come I can keep shooting like the film never ends. My heart gone ice cold. got home, examed camera, I know the 10 frame were wasted when I noticed I had the camera on multi-shot!

    ...Hearing the "clink" sound of a glass plate falling out of the holder when you're trying to reinsert the dark slide?
    I was lucky and had only 10 minutes walk to get back to my darkroom. Carried the camera very carefully, back down inside the darkcloth back to the darkroom, removed the lens, pushed the plate in with a finger through the lensboard opening, inserted the darkslide, and finally started breathing again.

    I must be getting old - I can't remember any of my LF mistakes. Selective memory at play, no doubt, or maybe self preservation: why would I tell you guys all the stupid things I've done?

    Incidentally, did you know that 4x5 film holders don't float and are not water proof?

    Putting the quick load in backward makes for a funky red image.

    Realizing you took the lenses out of the bag to clean them and did not put them back into the bag. you only realize this after a two mile hike and an hour drive.

    Of course Jorge, that "never" happens. lol

    I guess one of my favorites is leaving the lens cap on, on the inside of the bellows. I look at the front, it's ok, nothing! I make sure the film holder is out, NOthing, I make sure the shutter is open, NOTHING. Then after that brief moment of sickness thinking my lens is broken, I remember to check the rear lens cap. <naughty word here>

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Rangefinder pains

    Oh, a story with my beloved Fujica G690... an excellent weather, flowers all around, me shooting like mad. The roll should give 8 exposures, and I took much more... how comes? I just forgot to switch a small freaky control from S(heetfilm) to R(ollfilm), so my faithful Fujica shot half of frames (it takes two strokes for 6x9) without any doubt. More, in my rage I forgot to take off the lens cap That was for better, because I finally found out what's wrong with my head, and rewound the whole roll back, using my zipped jacket as a changing bag ))))
