In your bag 824, Eddie Miyoshi
Straight over to Japan, and Eddie shares his bag with us today. Full of lots of film goodness. Check it out.
My Name is Eddie (volcomeddie) I moved to Tokyo about 3 years ago after the Great Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami to help run our Japan subsidiary as President/GM for Volcom Japan (An Action Sports ( Surf/Skate/Snow) Brand originally based in Costa Mesa California). While Expats were fleeing, I was moving the family to a country my ancestors left over 3 generations ago. Now I look back, and think, probably the best decision on my life!
Being in Tokyo is such an inspiration for any amateur photographers and camera collectors. The numerous vintage camera shops, film developing boutiques and just the overall beauty of the culture, scenery and seasons. I started off shooting digital with my 7D as a means to document all of our events, contests and parties but fell in love with film after purchasing my first film camera a Contax T2 and experimenting with lifestyle shots of our professional riders. Since then I have collected a number of cameras from Rolleiflexes, a Canon AE1, several Polaroids, a Leica as well as a Hasselblad. I think I need therapy…
Basically what I keep with me on a daily basis, Ive included below..
MY Incase Ari Marcopoulos Camera bag ( I added a little Volcom screen to the front for personal flare and Brand support)
Hasselblad 500CM with Zeiss 80mm F2.8 Lens
Leica M6 Classic with Summicron 50mm F2.0 and a Zeiss 35mm F2.8
SF20 Flash( Just for the Party/Bar shots)
Iphone for those handy digital moments as well as the Light meter application
Lens pen and a Volcom/ES Goggle wipe for wiping down the lenses during the rain/snow flurries..
And of course my Japan camera Hunter film cases both Meidum format and 35mm.
Oh and just to throw in the pocket an old vintage 2 film canister I found in a little camera shop in Ebisu.
