In your bag 851, James
James has a really great bag, with some amazing kit in it. But that is all I know. I am going to make a guess at Australia, going from personal experience. Come and check it out.
My first IMB shot ever last night, prepped the bag to go up the coast today to shoot some bushfire early regrowth.
That’s a Crumpler Dry Red, which has lasted two years now as a daily bag. Has a perfectly sized outer side slot for the Sekonic L398 light meter, and front pocket for the Velvia and ND filters.
Thats a Polaroid 195, with a crack sharp and contrasty lens that lends itself nicely to producing a Pola-neg from Fuji FP100C. Perfect combination for rendering skinny char-grilled trees in a sharply delineated manner.
The other curiosity is a 6x12cm Holga wide angle pin-hole camera body, with a Copal #3 shutter housing the f180 pin-hole. Mounted on top is a 14mm viewfinder and spirit level. The 6×12 image has the same horizontal field of view as a 14mm lens on a 35mm camera.
Shutter speeds (in good daylight) are usually 1sec for 100ISO, 1/4s for 400ISO, 1/8s for 800ISO, so it’s totally not mental to put a large format camera shutter on a $15 piece of plastic, for the sake of getting exposures right. Six images per roll is not cheap!!!
Thanks for sharing your bag with us James. We could do with some links or something though. And a complete name.
Please make sure you come and comment.
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.
