The second day he carried a hasselblad 6x6. He said in his younger days he often carried an 8X10 Deardorf into the field. I agreed that it was a young man's camera outside of a studio. I was 20 years old at the time and I wouldn't want to haul one of those around. He didn't mention an Arca Swiss monorail but it is certainly possible that he used one.
