[QUOTE=David Brown;622081]Well now, this is interesting! My wife decided this was the "thing to do" a while back. She just bought a "pochade" box http://www.dickblick.com/zz528/03/ and I had to donate a tripod to the effort. We've only been out once, and it was successful, but we'll see ...
Trouble is, I shoot medium format. Is this gonna drive me to sheet film?
You got lucky. My dear sweet bought one of those boxes and none of my seven tripods was a correct fit. Not only that but she had to buy their canvas stool for the right height. Did I with umpteen lenses, cameras, and near terminal GAS say a word. NADA! Not one. She is happy, takes half the workshops and gatherings I do, and encourages me in my projects. Not the time to say a bad word. As a boss once said when I was over sales quota and my expense report was a little high, "just the cost of doing business." If I had had the same expenses and been below quota, it would have been time to post my resume.
Yes, unless she is very fast you need to go to sheet film. You will be much too fast with 120 film. I would say you need a 12"x20" at least. I think you may owe me a dinner and drinks for that suggestion.
