    Yes Curt, I used the metal clips that come with the shoulder straps (KEH sells the metal clips separately) and made my own nylon short strap - long enough to fit my hand through - attached to the factory mounts. It stays clear of the WLF when open or closed.

    It gives me a way to pick the camera up with one hand, especially when it's tucked in a backpack. It also makes it easy to set it on a tripod, or just walking around with it in one hand.

    Nice. A group with a sense of humor. And in good physical condition, too.

    Lets's see, now. The camera weighs 4.5 pounds, so the tripod should weigh at least 9.0 pounds. Yup, got that covered with the old Davis & Sanford.

    Enjoy; Ralph Javins

    There's plenty of that. And plenty of good advice too. Wecome to APUG.

    I'm not going to offer any advice as I have just about all medium format formats covered and all of the cameras are good for their individual reasons such as a lightweight 6x6 folder for taking on walks, an RB67 for appearing eccentric with (actually, that last reason covers me with any of my cameras!).

    Steve.
    I prefer the "because I can" argument. If I did not need to purchase holders, dev holders, a dev tank, etc, I would have a 4x5. (I eventually will, but that is for another day.)

    I can, I like it, you can keep your little P&S cameras (digi, APS or 35mm).

    Ok, I just workup from a nap and will stop rambling.
