[pct-l] The Big Picture!!!

 I sometimes carry my Bronica SQ-Ai on dayhikes, but I
don't think I'll carry it in the backcountry. It's a
tank! Probably 4.5 pounds for the camera and
waist-level finder and 2 lenses. And of course, you
need the burlier tripod to support it.

 Most of the time, I'm satisfied with the results from
my Canon system.. Of course, I work in a photo lab, so
I don't have to pay for processing. That's always a
nice bonus..
