In your bag 440, Buck Pago
Todays bag is simple and pure, as it is a bag that is totally focussed on getting the shots that Buck wants from the street. This is a fantastic bag because of purity of vision. There is also a great picture of Buck at work. I wouldn’t normally feature a bag with this little information, but this one is good enough to go up.

Good day mr. Japancamerahunter,

perhaps you might be interested to see whats inside my bag, Im Buck Pago from the Philippines doing documentary photography on human conditions here. heres my online website/blog

I have a very simple set up, I carry only one pouch with 400 films and 1600 reloaded films, as well as a notebook and pen. I carry my camera in my neck all the time.

here is a sample of my work

    Would be nice to know what camera he was using.

      He is using a Fuji Natura. Thanks.

      Sorry, you are right. I am having a bit of a brain freeze right now.

    I will love to get one

    The Klasse W seems like a great camera, along the same lines as a Ricoh GR1/s/v I would think. Interesting photos, nonetheless.

    This is as simple as it gets, but soooo good.

    looked over his site, incredible work.

    I notice the tape over the flash. If you did that because the flash is frequently automatically flashing when you take a low light shot (I have a Klasse S & W and experienced this) there is a way to program it not too. Go to this site:
    And, scroll down to “hidden functions”. There is instruction on how to turn off the flash.
    Of course, if you taped it because that’s how you like it, kindly disregard my comment.

    This is inspiring stuff. Like Chase said this makes me think I’m over complicating this photography thing. Please, please, please go look at Buck’s images!
