I've developed a degenerative neuromuscular disease. As such, my days of long hikes down rough trails hauling my Hasselblad H4D 50, 28mm, 50-110mm, HTS, tripod, etc are over.
Just trying to tote the H4D 50 with one lens on it while trying to stroll down a city street is impossible.
No, my photography days are not over - I just have to adjust and work on finding my issue "entertaining" rather than limiting.
That's the given.
The question is what camera do I transition to that is dramatically lighter than the above - in short, even my wife could tote it for me with one or two lenses.
Having been sooo pleased with the images I have been getting from my Hassie, I expect it will be impossible to find anything to equal the files that I'm used to working on, but I'll learn to adjust - I just want what as close to what I've had without all of the weight issues.
Suggestions are appreciated as I've only been using the Hassie series of digitals for many years. (Did take a quick journey with the Canon 5DMk II several years ago and did not like it! Afraid the lack of 16 bits and low resolution was the biggest problems for me in my B&W work - lost those smooth gradations in the clouds, etc.)
