In your bag 377, Imsouchivy Sous
Looks like we have a completely digital bag today. In fact two different completely digital bags. Come and have a look and Cambodia native Imsouchivy shoots with.
Greeting JCH and JCH followers,
Thank you so much Bellamy for doing such as incredible/inspired blog!
I really enjoy looking at different people’s bags in “In Your Bag” series and I think it’s time for me to contribute to this fast grow community!
My name is Imsouchivy Suos (aka G.V.) and I’m originally from Phnom Penh, Cambodia. I’ve been traveling, studying and living in different parts of the world since I was 16 years old and recently I’m studying at Luther College, in a small mid-western town in Decorah, Iowa, USA. Apart from studying, I’m working at various places and one of my part time jobs is a freelance photographer for my college.
I’ve picked up a Casio exilic point and shoot camera for the first time when I left home back in late 2008. At first, I just take photos of random things for a record/log of my journey. Soon after that, I found out that photography is not just a hobby, it was actually passion. Just like many other photo enthusiasts out there, I’ve been exploring various types of photography for the past 3 years but my true passion is travel/street photography.
After my first camera broke down, I picked up my first dSLR in 2010 while I was living and studying in an international school in Hong Kong. It was Nikon D3100 that I’ve been shooting along with Nikkor 35mm 1.8, 18-55mm and 70-300mm. After I moved to US and got a job as a photographer for my college, I wanted to get a little bit more control from my camera, so I decided to switch to Canon system which were Canon 5D mark ii and Canon 5D as a back up. My favorite lens was 50mm 1.4 but I’ve upgraded to 50mm 1.2L and 35mm 1.4L recently.
Beside this two dSLRs, I also picked up two other cameras this summer for my street photography project which was Fuji X100 and Sigma DP2s. Both camera are great but they are still point and shoot to me and they don’t have the look that Canon lens render. They are still my great back up and good for a short street walk while I used my dSLRs for serious projects, assignments or any other things that would required large print.
My bag has been changing almost every year and it’s hard to decide which configuration is the perfect one though I use different sets for different purposes as stated above.
My first bag is dSLRs set up for my assignment and intend street shooting.
Case Logic SLR backpack (it was on a discount two years ago):
1. Canon 5D mark ii with battery grip
2. Canon 5D mark with battery grip
3. Canon 50mm 1.2 L
4. Canon 35mm 1.4 L
5. Sigma 17-35mm 2.8
6. Extra batteries and CF cards
7. B+W 9 stops and 2 stops ND filters ( love shooting wide open therefore I also include B+W 2 stop ND filter in my bag.)
8. Kindle Paper white (for books when I spend my time on the train or other public transportation)
9. iPad 4th Generation (internet and photos gallery, photography right and to do list)
10. iPhone 4
11. Rayban Sunglasses+case and Rayban case for my prescription glasses
12. Moo Facebook name card (they are great!)
13. Camelbak Eddy insulated water bitter with neoprene cover
I usually find myself walking on the street in different countries during vacation for almost 13 hours per day shooting.
If I want to go out with something more compact, I would go with this set:
Lowepro Exchange Messenger Bag (good/light durable bag with a really good price):
1. Fuji X100 (with square lens hood, thumb up grip, and Arnuvo Srap)
2. Sigma DP2s (with Grip)
3. Extra batteries and CF cards
4. Other gadgets from the first bag.
