The Equipment
The equipment was set up by the side of the track. On the tripods we had: a Canon F1 with a 400 mm lens and 400ASA colour film, a Canon FTb with a 300mm lens and 400ASA B/W film, and a Canon AE with a 200mm lens and 400ASA colour film. Each lens had a special high density filter hinged over the front. These were used to aim the cameras but the photographs were taken with them flipped out of the way. The clouds were still gathering so we decided to start our Picnic!
