In your bag number 113, Jason Scott
Todays bag is cool because it features some of my favourite cameras and lenses. And of course it features the film cases that I was selling. It is nice to see them in someones bag. So, let’s see what Jason has in his bag…
Hey guys! I’m Jason Scott all the way from Sydney, Australia. I’m 20 years old, currently living the uni life, studying electrical engineering. However in the spare time i get i try and go out and shoot as much as i can. I guess i would call myself a photography/street photography enthusiast…
This is a shot of what I more or less lug around while shooting when I want to bring more than one camera. Here’s the break down from left to right:
Ari Marcopoulous Incase Bag. Very comfy, and fits a lot of things in without being too bulky. Thanks to my friend Sully for showing me his one.
Polaroid 680 + Custom suede leather case. My go to ‘night-time’ instant camera. I carry either this, an SX-70, Konica Instant Press or Rolleicord IV with my Leica in my bag depending on what I plan to do that day.
2 Fujifilm 35mm film hard cases. Got these off Bellamy and they’re awesome! (sorry guys, all sold out)
Beats by Dr. Dre Solo HD headphones. Really nice headphones when travelling or just chilling.
My much loved Leica M6TTL LHSA x0.85 in its black Luigi half case. There’s nothing else like shooting with it. It’s an M6TTL with the trimmings of the older Leica’s like the long lost ‘Leica’ script, black paint and brass top and bottom plates. It’s the best of both worlds. Something I think I will keep for life.
Leica 35mm Summicron (V4) Pre-ASPH. My default lens on my M6. Its small, fast, light and close focus to 0.7m. The images it can make are just darn incredible.
Konica Instant Press. This is now my go to ‘Daylight’ instant camera. It has built in close focus to 0.6m which comes in VERY handy.
Boheme Leather journal + Fisher space pen. I use it for jotting down ideas and such. The space pen is handy as I know it’ll never fail even in crazy temperatures.
Sharpie with fine felt tip and fat tip.
Starburst Sucks lollipop. These are amazingly addictive.
Canon 50mm f/0.95 lens converted to M-mount + 6bit coded. My dream lens. It looks super sexy on the m6, does nice soft portraits and makes things just GLOW. Its 72mm lens barrel and long-ass focus throw means I don’t use it as much as I’d like, especially for street photography.
Leica 5cm Summitar. My go to street 50mm. It’s tack sharp for being about 70 years old. Does nice swirly bokeh too!
Original Canon 50mm f/0.95 metal lens hood. It was really hard to find. People are probably saying I’m crazy for using it over a cheap $5 hood. But they were meant to be used. So I do.
Gossen digisix. I highly recommend this meter for peel-apart film because it has built-in countdown timer, thermometer etc.
Mijonju’s custom Gundam fujipet. Its an awesomely fun camera! Here it is with Mijonju before he sold it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_2srq0DOu4
