When you go to a shooting, what are the essentials you take everytime, something like the core equipment? what kind of bag or case do you use for your MF gear? do you always take a laptop? what kind of backup do you take (that is a tough one considering the cost of a second back, maybe the business card of your MF Rep with his mobile number is enough?)

is the amount of stuff you take much more than what you need when working with 35mm?

Flashlight is very important. Headlamp is very useful for hands free use. I use a Pelican case or smaller backpacks when hiking.

35,100, 120, 210 lenses

P45+ back
firewire cables

gaffa tape
swiss army knife
spirit level
some film stock (out of date now, so a bit for the sentimental side...)
lots of CF cards
some straps
6 H2 batteries
6 P45+ batteries

And it's friggin heavy too, but the lighting cases are the killers

Then again, it is the MFDB forum, so its pretty obvious people have some expensive stuff lying around.
