    Thanks everyone for your comments. Glad to see another Nova Scotian pop up. I think that makes four of us here that I've noticed.

    I guess the RB67 is a little heavier than My F3 with motor drive but not by much. The back for the RB67 is still a bit lighter but that may change. I've seen the cart/strollers mentioned for LF but it may be a good idea, I'll have to give it some thought.

    Re darkroom set-up. If fact almost all my darkroom work has been sit-down. Especially at the enlarger, some how I like being close to the baseboard.

    Thanks again and like I said this is a really nice place on the net.

    George- I had a terrible left knee for years. After 14 surgeries, on it, I had it replaced 2 years ago. Smartest move I've ever made... When it gets to the point where the pain keeps you from leading the life you want, do it. The rehab is rough, but worth it.

    Eddie, all I can say is OUCH! 14 surgeries! As I have said I cope. I was on a waiting list for a partial replacement but by the time my turn came the damage was too much. I need full replacements on both knees, the trouble is the surgeon says I'm too young and have to wait a few more years. Yes the rehab scares me, being a bachelor living in the country I'm not sure I make it work, likely have to move in with my sister for a few months. The good thing is that I was able to take and early retirement with full pension, so if I need a day off no problem! Besides I get to use all those nice parking spots!

    Welcome George, from the west coast of Canada. I also have an RB with 3 lenses, a 4x5 with 3 lenses, and a few Nikons. My solution (and I don't have bad knees, just an aversion to hard physical labour) was a jogging stroller. A three-wheeler with big wheels, and it works great.
