In your bag 746, Stephen Haber
A proud Canadian bag for you all today. Stephen shares his simple all-digital bag with us. Come and check it out.
Hello from Canada to your readers. As winter sets in my thoughts turn to my ideal travel bag for wandering the streets of a warm foreign destination.
My mainstay would be the Ricoh GR using f8 and snap focus at 2m… simply brilliant for anything moving.
When I want more flexibility I can fall back to my Fujifilm X-E1 with a set of Canon new FD lenses: 24mm f2.8, 28mm f2.8 and 50mm f1.8. There’s something special about the tactile feel of these beautiful old manual focus lenses in combination with the manual controls of the Fuji X system.
For me, the feel of cold black metal and the smooth dampened twist of a manual focus lens makes the act of photography so much more enjoyable. Taking the time to slow down, see the sites, then capture those moments with beautiful tools. It’s a nice thought to look forward to!
Thanks for sharing your bag with us Stephen. I wish you had sent us a weblink or two though.
Please make sure you guys come and comment.
