It's hard to make just one camera design do everything. For versatility in studio use, car travel or on dayhikes when resorting to 4x5 (versus 8x10), I prefer a Sinar monorail. For airline use or long backpacks, I put a priority on lighter weight and signficantly better compactness, and carry an Ebony folder. In both cases I need well-built rigid cameras that will take wind and hold settings. There are lots
of good choices out there. The most important thing is to get familiar with your gear to the point of
using it spontaneously. That whole base-tilt vs axis-tilt debate is perhaps a bit overblown. Either is
easy enough if the equipment is well made.
