In your bag 335, Francois Nadeau
Today we have a composer on the site, a composer who also happens to be a photographer. Check out his two bags, one lovely and simple one and then a huge monster bag.


My name is François Nadeau and i’m a music composer (for tv and documentary) living in Montréal, Québec. Beside music, my other passion is photography. I have 2 bags. One that i call the week bag and one is the week-end bag.

My week bag i always carried around with me during the week is mainly composed of 35 mm cameras and i shoot mostly in black in white. But i usually have one of the camera with a color film just in case. I have a bunch of 35 mm cameras but here is my favorite setup.

-Kata backback bag

-yashica Electro GSN

-Minolta SRT 202 with a 28mm lens

-Zorki 4K with a Jupiter 8

-Zeiss Ikophot Ligth Meter

-Moleskine notebook

-Bunch of films (i like to try and experiment but mainly, its HP400 or TX400)

In the week-end bag, its all digital. I use it mainly for outdoor shooting(i like to get up at 4:00 am and go anywhere) but for studio work too.

-Lowerpro bag

-Canon 7D

-Canon 70-300 mm F4-5,6 L IS USM

-Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM

-Tamron wide SP AF 10-24mm

-Tamron Macro SP AF 90mm

-Canon 50mm 1.8

-Lens baby

-Flash YN565EX

-Flash YN560

-Ring Flash

-Flash radio trigger

-Sekonic Ligth Meter L-308S

-Bunch of filters and flash gels

So that’s my gear. Hope you like it.

    Another Zorkist! That camera is a tank, with great results.

    Great set up!

    How do you find the 24-105mm on the 7D? I’ve been toying with the idea of getting one.
