Susan: I traveled in Italy with a Mamiya 7 rangefinder and a small, light 'pod (a carbon-fiber model that was really strong and really light). Seemed to me ideal because I backpacked with it and still got nice large chromes. I do not have suggestions other than we found that staying outside of San Giminiano (sp?) in a villa was lovely and using Florence as a home base for Tuscany seemed to work well too. From Tuscany, it was eay to train/bus to various small places for day trips or to rent a car or to hire a driver. Hope this helps. Jim

  Subject: travel in Italy- from a photographer's view

  Dear List;
  I hope I am doing this right... I am enquiring as to whether there are Italian photographers on this list that could advise me/ other travellers recommending nice, small cities for 2 weeks in Oct. 2005.
  I don't want to stay in 4 star accommodations-(no hotels) and wish to find out about type of camera (is the 6 by 9 ideal) that is easy to travel with.
  I like Umbria and or; Tuscany areas.
  I know this a big request- any suggestions are very much welcomed.
