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!

Best regards,
Stephen Haber

    Great bag, exactly the set up I am currently considering for the digital side. The Fuji Xe1/2 is intriguing me more and more.
    Would have loved to see some of your work though.

    Are there any example shots using that xe-1 with that lens turbo? Im curious to see the results.

    Stephen, the XE-1 now my camera of choice. Would be interested in chatting more about your use of the canon lenses with the Fuji system.

    Kyle – I use lens turbo with manual Pentax lens – here you can see some results:
    Hope that helps you.

    Thanks from a fellow Canadian – Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON.

    Am just moving from a D300 system to one based around an X-E2 so on the search for a bag. Looking at a Domke or a ThinkTank but what model Mountain Equip is yours. Suspect however, it’s bigger than I want as I am determined to stay small!

    Interested in the lens turbo. While I asm considering the Fuji 14mm (or possibly upcoming 10-24) using my Nikon 10.5 could be an option and certainly my old pre-VR and relatively worthless 70-300.
