Dheorl: I just realised how much weight he carries! How can anyone possibly call that ultralight backpacking?

@Dheorl I have no doubt that you're in shape, I didn't mean to insinuate otherwise. I admit I do carry luxuries with me. At 6'3" I carry a larger than average sleeping pad, my tent is bigger than necessary (3 man) and I don't dehydrate most of my foods however I am getting serious about moving that route.

I meant to say that weight is relative and perhaps to that author 40 lbs is ultralight, even if its not. Some go to extremes with cutting handles off toothbrushes and removing zipper pulls from bags and tents.

~42 lbs? I would argue that its not Ultralight but it's certainly encroaching on the ultralight category. Personally with tent, food, and gear I sit at 45lbs myself however I am also a fit 230 lbs male so it's relative.

probert500: Hmm - without roll tops - or a drybag interior (see Kreiga) I don't see how these can be truly waterproof.

@Tazz93 I stand corrected, when it comes to this category of bags details are key.

I agree, I just swamped a canoe full of camera gear this weekend past and I have been lucky enough to have them dry out and work 100%. I saw this bag and was excited until I noticed the poor closures and the IPX3 rating.

IPX3 definition from Apple regarding their products: , IPX3 means it is protected against spraying water so in effect [it's] splashproof, it will be fine at the beach as long as it isn't immersed in water, and sand won't cause any harm either.

Hardly waterproof

CortoPA: Hope they make some money from this so that they might re-release some other Films too.

Not from me tho, I shoot roughly one roll a year these days. With a Olympus Infinity Stylus. And in B&W.

The monthly payment for Lightroom and Photoshop is less than having one roll of film developed and scanned.

And the Film Art Snobs......Remind me of Squidward from Spongebob....

One roll plus development in my area is about $40.00 before taxes ... that's 2 and a bit months of lightroom.

Kavu: Now if only we could do that with the actual sky. Sun disappears for a few months in the winter in Happy Valley. C'mon Adobe....

Happy Valley - Goose Bay?

With that massive 6 NEF buffer. 1 second of Continuous Shoot? Why bother?
