Well, I just looked up the tour details http://www.lowerantelope.com/aboutTheTour.php and it says

"Photographer's pass is 2 hours in duration. One photo pass for each individual with the required equipment. You can purchase the pass at the booth. The REQUIRED equipment are a SLR camera, medium or large format WITH a tripod. No guide is provided for the photographer, but a Canyon Monitor will check on you periodically for questions or assistant.

Things to bring:

• SLR camera (medium or large format) required
• Extra film or memory cards.
• Batteries
• Tripod required
• Plastic bag (for windy days to protect camera or lens)"

Seems a bit stupid, but an m4/3 is not an SLR (bolding is theirs, not mine).

So just take a tripod and any old DSLR (smaller the better....old Pentax APSC fit the bill or better still a film SLR like a Spotmatic) AND your other camera.

How did you get 7 supporting votes for you ignorant post?

same way you got two for yours I guess!

Do you know what medium or large format is? it is not APS-C and it is not 35mm. it's bigger.

I took that as being a dslr including medium format and large format...if it is not I made a mistake....guess I am not perfect like you huh.....but then I looked up the sight and saw it said SLR (comma) medium or large format.....which makes a lot more sense given that there are no large format SLRs and many medium format cameras are rangefinders.

I know perfectly well what medium and large format is (I have a medium format camera but it is not eligible as it is a rangefinder).

What LARGE format SLR would you bring?
