In your bag No: 695, Carlos Cabalu
I am not really sure if this is the coolest,or strangest bag shot that I have featured. If you could call it a bag. Whatever it is, I like it. Check it out.
Greetings from Philadelphia!
This is my budget kit.
The camera was new old-stock, having only seen the sun for the first time this spring. Even though it was packaged in its original box and sealed plastic sleeves, it still reeked of patchouli of all things.
I love the simple film transport. It might just be in my head, but I like to nudge it before shooting to take up the slack. Its simple lens takes great swirly photos.
The film case is just perfect for the day-to-day! Though I still transfer my rolls to a clear bag for airport security.
The bag itself is pretty bare bones. No padding, no protection from the elements; it needs to be supported from the bottom on humid days. Still… it’s fairly cheap, pretty low profile, breathable, and comes in a pack of 100 pieces. You can’t beat that.
This simple kit would be pretty effective for upskirts, but I mostly take pictures of my dogs.
Hope you enjoy my submission and keep up the good work!
Thanks for sharing this awesome setup with us Carlos. It is a weird kind of low budget, ultra stealth for the street.

Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on Japancamerahunter.com. Send me a hi resolution image of the bag (please make sure it is horizontal) and its contents, with some details about yourself and what you shoot. Oh and don’t forget your contact details (twitter, flickr, tumbler et al). Send the bag shots here. Please understand that there is a long wait now as there is a backlog of submissions. Not all make the cut, so make sure yours is funny/interesting/quirky. And please make sure the shot is of good quality, as the ones that are not do not go up.
