Also, on a side note, anyone have any tips for a low profile tripod that can support a bolex with primes? Or maybe to keep lower profile I could just use the handle and rest it on a tree or a ledge or something?

I'm taking a trip soon and trying to figure out the logistics before I get there.

Thanks!

You might check out the Australian "Cinesaddle" or a similar product - holds your camera and a can of Foster's...

You might want to look into a monopod. Cheaper and lighter to carry than a regular tripod. I've seen some walking sticks or hiking staffs that can be converted to a monopod with a 1/4"-20 camera screw under their handle.

Yes I had forgotten the monopod. That could work.

Thanks!
