What's In Your Bag Right Now?

Just brought my A&A 'Oskar's One Day Bag' up to the office, and don't want to change a thing. I've been carrying the Voigtlander 667W (with a yellow filter on it) loaded with HP5+ and the M9 with an old 50/1.5 and a 35/2.0 ASPH for a few days now. There's an extra battery, a few cards, and an extra roll of HP5+. The little Leuchttrum notebook, a few sharpies, a lens cloth, a pair of drugstore reading glasses. Seems about right for the time being. I could get plunked down about anywhere and work out of that bag.

I have not unpacked my bag from yesterday, when I shot animals at a zoo during the day and cityscapes after dark. I carried the following equipment in a backpack:

Fuji X-Pro1 body
Fuji 16-55mm f/2.8
Fuji 50-140mm f/2.8
Rokinon 12mm f/2
Cable Release
Spare Battery
Spare Memory Card

I used a monopod for the zoo shoots and changed to a tripod for the cityscapes.

Which bag? I have one for some different systems. One of my favorites right now is a Contax 167mt, which has a 28mm-70mm mounted, a 18mm-28mm, 75mm-150mm, and a Contax 50mm f/1.4 in the bag. Also a Yashica FX3 as backup, and a small dedicated flash. Not to heavy, covers a lot of focal lengths. Unfortunately I have forgotten to bring if for the last three days. There is a photo outside I really want to experiment with taking. It is a reflection of our building on another building.

Fortunately it seems you don't have my memory problem.

I do like your idea of small not too heavy bags. My fujica bag or my Super Press 23 bag are best carried by a wheel barrow.

Sepiareverb, I have a very similar bag to yours! Generally, my bag never changes, unless I upgrade a lens (which is rare).

In my Domke F2, currently carrying:
  • Leica M2
  • Canon 35mm f/2 LTM
  • 50mm Summicron (v3)
  • 90mm Tele-Elmarit f/2.8 (fat)
  • Pinhole body cap (28mm, f/150)
  • Sekonic L-308s
  • Ilford HP5 Plus (3 rolls)
  • Red Sharpie
  • Leuchttrum notebook
  • Ear plugs
  • Ray-Ban Caravan sunglasses

My Bag today is my 'every day' Bag.

Well, not much interesting stuff:-
M2 (with Tri-X @ 3200) + CV 35/1.4SC
Water Bottle
Breath Mints
Wallet
Pens, Notebook
Baby Wipes (I don't have a Baby, these are phenomenal at removing dirt + stains from Clothing.)
Many Keys for Several Shops that I run on occasion
Headphones

when I'm not working it tends to be a bit more Photographically oriented

It depends on what I feel I need for that day. It's never the same. Sometimes, I don't even use a bag.

My bag came from Value Village, cost $3 and contains an Olympus Pen F, (film) 20mm f3.5, 25mm f4, 38mm f1.8 and 100mm f3.5. A set of 43mm close up lenses, 43mm R25, Y2, and X1 filters, small manual flash, Gossen Pilot meter and a couple of rolls of film.

Yeah, I'm stuck in 1974.

The A&A is a very nice bag! I have had one of the Black Label Bag developments of that one, the "Oskar's One Day Bag Mark II" since 2010 and it is just a terrific piece. It's gone all over the world with me.

Right now, the two "ready" bags in my closet are a Billingham Alice L2 and a Tenba DNA 8. The DNA8 has my Leica M-D fitted with Color Skopar 50mm f/2.5, spare battery, and an SD Card to Lightning adapter cable (so I can quickly transfer photos from camera to iPad or iPhone). The L2 has the SL fitted with Super-Elmar-R 15mm f/3.5, spare battery, and another SD Card to Lightning adapter cable. Which one I grab right now depends on the caprice of the moment.

Which reminds me: I should swap batteries in both cameras and charge the ones that have been in use for a bit. :-)

On my way to a wedding in Brooklyn, unfortunately I'm the best man.... meant in the nicest way possible.
Have my mamiya 7, 80mm, and a bunch of film thrown in a book bag with my shoes. Doubt I'll use it, I'm pretty lazy.

Today's bag (Hadley Pro) has:

M240 + ZM Distagon 18mm
Elmar-M 50mm
UC Hexanon 35mm
Spare battery
Spare SD card
Lenspen (for the brush)
Rocket Blower
Microfibre cloth x2
Work laptop [I'm primary on-call support this week ]
Power supply and cord for laptop
USB cable for work iPhone
Binoculars (Zeiss 8x32 FL)

It would be a different bag (with no stinkin' laptop) if I weren't on-call. Likely a Domke F8 or F3X depending on gear.

My current "bag" is A Tenba DYOB 7 (a very compact, self contained insert) that holds: a Fuji X100T, strap, lens hood, two spare batteries, extra cards. It holds all of this in a tight, compact form that can be inserted into any bag that I am carrying - right now it's an old Orvis messenger type bag. Tomorrow it will go into a Hadley Pro along with some other non-photo gear.

I have several bags with gear for different purposes. However, I've been using the stuff in one particular bag most often lately. It's the lightweight general purpose bag that holds a Fuji X100S, Fuji X-E2 with 35/2 lens and Ricoh GR II. Also in the bag is the Fuji 60/2.4 and the Ricoh lens converter (equivalent 21mm), Lenspen, microfiber cloth, spare batteries for everything and a few SD cards. All this fits easily and carries comfortably in the Think Tank City Walker 10.

Sounds like a pretty cool set-up. A lot of bang for the buck there.

For the time being, most of my gear is in storage and all I have and carry is the Leica M-E and the 28 and 35mm Zeiss lenses. Together with my work stuff it all fits nicely in the Hadley Large shoulder bag. Great bag but it should have a carrying handle...

I have the same bag, twice. A Tenba messenger in large, and a Tenba messenger in mini.
The large is for full digi 5Dii kit - pancake 40 on the body, 20 2.8, 50 1.8, 70-200 2.8, laptop, flash, too many triggers/cables/hard drives/etc in their made to fit accessory case and pockets.
The mini is for everyday - Bessa R3A with a 50 2.0 on it, lens cloth, spare batteries, some film, notepad and pen, plus any bits and bobs I've got with me.
Got a lot of love for their bags. Well made, perfect layout for my style, and the best shoulder straps I've had in years.

No bag.
M6 with a 21/3.4 SA in my hand loaded with a fresh roll of Fomapan 400.

It was a fresh roll so didn't take another, light was typical so didn't take a light meter. It's pretty typical for me, although usually I have the 35/1.4 summilux pre-asph mounted. But it's getting serviced at the moment, so the SA takes centre stage.

Thanks for playing all! Nice to get a feel for what is in your hands and what is running through the film cameras.

I only made a two frames today with the 667W, and about twenty with the M9 & 50/1.5.

I don't often shoot a lot here around home. My small town walks are certainly repetitive now.
