"I would not give a moment's consideration to any of the wooden field cameras. They might be light, but that's about it."
I agree with Lachlan! That's daft - I've carted my very wooden Wista around the world with a variety of lenses (65/135/300mm) and have never had any cause for complaint beyond my own forgetfulness or idiocy. Heaps of movement and flexibility, and when you're lugging stuff up a mountain, I would not be discounting weight so easily
Still - you'll soon find what you like - years ago I lugged an old Graflex View 'art deco' monorail around, and that did me fine, even though it was as ergonomic to cart about as a sack of flour with spikes sticking out of it. Folding cameras are a bit kinder in that regard.
