Miniaturization skills, and engineering reverses

Silver Fir detail, Joyce Quadrangle, March 2009

I’ve been working on a new camera, so I’m taking a small hiatus from hikes and snaps. It is another 5×12, thought hopefully will be considerably smaller and lighter than my current one- which was designed in haste for an impending trip and  erred on the side of… modularity.   Researching the format only compounded every possible contingency; I put a meter of bellows on the damn thing and rarely rack it out more than 200mm, to name one example. Most of these DNR roads just go on and on and up and up, so the lighter the much better.

In the interim, another silverfir image. Pushing it but I can’t help myself.
