    I've never regretted carrying the RZ.
    I have only one lens and rarely find it a problem.

    A twin lens is something I've never used, but why not. Size does matter when it comes to negs. I always carry a 35 as well. The small size and weight is a small price to pay for the ease and flexibility of the format.

    Skip London and head North. Yorkshire and Scotland for me every time.

    Is it worth the pain? No.

    Worst case scenario => your camera gets lost or stolen. Result, you will buy another for less than you spent for the equipment you brought years ago [when you put it today's money].

    Thanks for all the advice...I leave on Saturday! I'm bringing the TLR and a pocket digicam. The TLR will stay in the hotel room when I don't feel like carrying it! Taking about 15 rolls of HP5 and a few rolls of color.

    I have $275 invested in my Mamiya C220 + 55mm lens + 80mm lens + 135mm lens. Not a big loss if it gets stolen . The other nice part about bringing inexpensive cameras is that I'm not gonna lug around a bulky, heavily padded camera bag. Everything is going in a small canvas shoulder bag that doesn't have any bulk. Sure, no protection, but I really don't care if it gets dinged up.

    Mike,

    Enjoy your trip! Glad you decided to take whatever gear you decided to take! I've been to Europe 6 times (4 to the UK, 1 to France, 1 to Czech Republic) in the last year and I've taken my Hassey and 3 lenses each time in a small Lowepro backpack.

    Regards, Art.

    Tough choice but I think you made the right one. If the whole kit gets too heavy or clumsy, just take the 80 along. What's that stat? 70% of all (good?) photos are taken with a 'normal' lens?

    After being a bit disappointed by my 35mm negs at 11x14 I took my much heavier c330 w/ 1 lens (the awesome 80) to Prague and every negative is beautiful if not noteworthy.

    That being said, a super light and inexpensive Rolleicord IV accompanied me to Ireland and I was very happy with the negatives and my back thanked me.

    Have an amazing trip. Theyre all such incredible places.

    I don't take photographs when I travel in order to have souvenirs from the trip. So I don't travel in order to make photographs. I carry a camera because I never know when I will see a picture. That's no more or less true when I'm traveling than when I'm home. What's different is that if I don't travel with a camera, unlike when I leave my house without a camera, I've no opportunity to run home and get my camera...or come back another day to make the photograph. Traveling without a camera means a high likelihood of missed opportunities.
