It’s been about 4 years, 7 months and 18 days since I’ve used a slider. We have a complicated relationship. I love the shots a good slide can produce, but in my travels, I can rarely justify carrying the extra weight and equipment to get that shot.
I’ll be the first to admit that I have way too many backpacks. I’ve got one for backcountry hiking, one for backpacking, one for all my cameras, one for one of my camera, one for my cameras if I want no one to steal it and even one that I can pack inside my other packs.
