Hi all,

I'm about to buy my first changing tent and have been advised to get one big enough for 1000' 35mm loads.

Is the standard harrison 35mm tent big enough or do I need to get the jumbo (65mm) tent?

Any advice would be appreciated.

The standard size is big enough.

The larger tent can be useful on a remote shoot, since it sleeps two.

The standard (35) tent is a bit cramped when working with 1000' mags with hinged doors that are not completely removable (435, Arricam). However the Jumbo (65) tent is often too large when loading in strange places (back seat of cars etc.) Go with the standard.
