    Hi Nick, great work and dedication!

    Got a question for your RZ: some say the pro II is the preferred model because the added focus fine tune knob will allow more precise focus, since depth of field tend to be razor thin. Do you find it challenging to nail focus on your Pro I model?

    Thanks in advance. Trying to get an RZ myself but can't decide on which.

    I live in LA as well and go to Joshua Tree to do Milky Way Timelapses! This place is awesome! Just found your channel and I love it!! Keep up the good work!

    Man, your RZ seems to sit much nicer than mine when you carry it on the shoulder strap. I should try turning my lugs around!

    can you tell me what filter do you use ?
    and why did you use holder filter instead of using filter diameter 77mm ?
    seriously your pictures remind me of adam ansel's work !

    How do you work out your exposure on a fully manual medium format camera. I am thinking of buying the RB67 but I am unsure before I buy. Thanks for the first on location I have seen anyone do with this type of camera

    Very nice work on the triptych! I started shooting triptychs with my phone when my Linhof 617s was damaged. Each approach has its place and time. I have watched a number of your videos and enjoy your presentation.

    How did you meter these? I'd love to jump into medium format, but i don't really know how to meter externally, unless the rb or rz67 have a built in light meter.
