What's in your bag?

Hi,

several forums online have threads on camera bag contents and I've noticed RFF doesn't have one. It's nice to see people's camera's and lenses, but the combination of different gear often tells even more.

What's in your bag?

X100 and the M4-P with the VC 25mm. I'll be damned if I'm going to take a nice, neat picture of them, though!

Today I was out with the Rolleiflex 2.8e, and my new-old Nikon S3 with a 50/1.4, 35/1.8, and 21/4. I ended up doing most of my shooting with the Rolleiflex, for some reason the square format seemed more suitable for what I was shooting today.

This is gonna be a nice thread !!

Bizzardkid I also love those swing out Konica straps, I have converted a few of them into wrist straps by making 2 with 1 strap. Also the beater M4 reminds me my beater M3, same condition but soooooo soft.

This my bag below:



The bag is a 1975 Genuine Field jacket model M65 medium size, brand new and impossible to find as new unless you know me
Layed on top are:

-Leica Standard with VC 28mm f3.5 and small finder, loaded with kodak Elite film 100 ISO
-Leica IIIf with Elmar 50mm f3.5, loaded with Kodak Trix 100 ISO
-Leica 90mm f4 and associated Nikkor UW 80mm finder
-2 spare rolls of each film above
-Cheapo cell phone, does the job for me
-Olympus small voice recorder-a great performer even for recording concerts
-The famous Never-break-really reliable-unseperable-POLARIS lightmeter. I have it for 20 years in my pocket and I love to lure the kids saying this is the new generation satelite Iphone-hahahaha

Added on top of that is just pulled from my car: The Beastie boys anthology, Sounds of science

The contents of my bag change each time depending on where I go, the mood of the day and what I expect to photograph.

Sacrilege, but I haven't touched any of my rangefinder cameras in months...
So excuse the distinct lack of them in this photo:


There is a foldex 6x9 and a Demekin up on the top left, which I don't use very frequently, but I didn't want to appear too boring for only using 35mm SLRs. I did though use them this summer.

The rest:
Edixa Prismaflex
Miranda D
Yashinon 2/50
Miranda 1.9/50
Enna Lithagon 3.5/35
Soligor 2.8/105 + hood
Miranda WLF
Miranda M42 adapter
A wide angle auxiliary lens with a reversed front element
Various films - the Edixa usually has slide film in it, and the Miranda usually has B/W film in it.

Not pictured: boring stuff like straps and a cable release, etc.

Most of the cameras and lenses are sitting on a cabinet. I'll take the easy way out instead of digging stuff out to shoot it.

Bag 1: Canon 10D, EF 28-135mm, EF 100-300mm (sometimes an EF 70-300mm) Tamron 19-35mm, Sunpak 422D (sometimes), cheap radio shutter release, cheap radio flash trigger (sometimes) and various filters.

Bag 2: Olympus E510, 14-42mm, 40-150mm, cheap radio shutter release.

Bag 3: Olympus 35RC, Olympus OM2S, OM 50mm, OM 100mm, OM mount Sigma 28mm , OM mount Samyang 18-28mm (sometimes), OM mount DeJur 135mm.

Haha yes the pic is a real cliche isn't it?!

I don't carry a tactical knife with me, honest.

Yup that's a Paxette, one from my rather large collection!

Camera's:
  • Leica M2, black repaint. Belonged to a German press photographer once. I had it redone in really tough black paint (Thanks, Nobbylon!) and it's totally mine now.
  • Leica M4, Banged-Up Edition. A bit rough but it works!
  • Ricoh GRD-1. Had if for weeks only but it broke. Gone now. Loved it for the Tri-Xy look when converting 800 ISO shots to B&W.
  • Two nylon Konica straps that came with the AutoReflex T4 camera's and that I really love for their secure steel hooks, single buckle and 12mm width

Lenses:
  • Super-Angulon 3.4/21mm and finder. Acquired a set of lenses and sold the others for the buying price: free Super-Angulon!
  • Summilux-M 1.4/35mm. Made 1982, it had only seen five, six rolls of film back then and then was shelved by the first owner. I bought this last year after saving for an eternity.
  • Summilux-M 1.4/50mm pre-1st version. Made 1958 and serial from before the first batch.
  • Jupiter-9 2.0/85mm, prototype with original Zeiss optics, agrees with Leica: set to 83.7mm by the factory. It came with a hand-written passport in Russian, written on that typical 60 yr-old cheap Russian paper.

Various:
  • Some IXMOO cassettes in their canisters. Filled with Tri-X or T-max 400 most of the time, but often RolleiRetro 100 or 400S as well. I have a stash of 30 IXMOO's, hehe! Color film used is either rebranded Fuji Superia or Kodak Portra.
  • El Cheapo flash GN20 that fits all camera's.
  • Gossen Lunasix-3 with detachable semi-spot attachment. Brilliant and accurate exposure meter!
  • iPhone 4S with apps like Dev Chart, Simple DoF, VelaClock and the compass. Loads of music and photography documentaries on there too. Forgot to include the head set in the picture.
  • Some business cards, some pens.
  • Currently reading Curzio Malaparte's 'The Technique of Revolution', a 1931-published book opposing fascism.
  • A small Billingham that easily fits all the above. It's still a bit too new-looking for my taste but that'll pass too.
How do you like the Jupiter 9? I've been thinking about one myself...

This is my "no need to switch lenses" kit, just a bit heavy for walking around with all day.

28, 35, and 50mm

I don't carry a bag with me every day. Just a Camera and a lens.

Today I have a Voigtlander 50mm 1.1 on my M9-P. I never seem to use this lens so have forced myself by attaching the beast on to my camera today!
Also have the 1.4x mag on the back with a thumbs-up so I have chance of nailing a shot with the shallow DOF..

Thanks
Rich

no, the smith and wesson model 10 doesn't ride in my bag. just a visual joke. the knife also does not ride there. it does, however, ride clipped to my right front pocket.
this is a typical load for a weekend visit to see my grandchildren. sometimes i take a third camera, such as my me super, riding by itself. no room in the bag for three cams without dividers. gotta get some.

I bought a Canon EOS M today for a P&S type AF thing, so I guess if I had a bag, that would go in there. I was surprised in the difference in quality to the M9 and decent glass. I knew it would be different, but it's night and day..
Anyway, yes, a new bag entrant!

Wait- It fits in my jeans pocket. No need for a bag still!

50mm 1.1 swapped for Zeiss 1.5 so it's not so bloody massive

No RF gear, but I frequently toss my R3A and 28/3.5 in there for good measure.
