In your bag No: 916 – Tim Heubeck

Posted on by Bellamy


In your bag 916, Tim Heubeck
Tim is rather fond of two things. Fujinon lenses and very strong mints.

My name is Tim Heubeck and I am a amateur photographer based in Germany.
I have already been featured on JCH (link), but since my bag changed quite a lot I wanted to entry a new submission.

I still like to travel a lot and use these trips for several different things such as street photography, landscape, architecture,… But if I go out shooting here I mostly go for street stuff, which is what I like most.

Last year my bag was just a Hadley Large, X100s and some random things.

It has changed quite a bit. I first made the switch from the X100s tot he X Pro 1 and the 23mm lens, because I wanted the faster aperture of F1,4 in comparison to F2 and also the possibility to change lenses when needed. Then I bought the 60mm Fuji lens, which I did not like too much because of the slow auto focus. So I sold that and bought the 35mm lens. A backup Fuji Xe-1 is what I will buy pretty soon too. In order to create better quality video and just as a second camera.

Also new in my bag is a Minolta Hi Matic 7 SII. This is my first real film camera, since I am too young for having experienced film in the past. I cleaned and repaired it and now it runs perfectly. I usually carry some color and black and white film (mostly 200 and 400 speed). Film just lets you slow down and also has a positive impact on your digital photography. And some Fishermens Friend to keep refreshed.

The bag is a Hadley Pro and I also have a Hardcase whenever I need extra protection.
I usually do not carry a Laptop, just if needed for backups sometimes. My ipad and nexus 5 serve me well for most of the time.

Here is a summary of my camera bag:

- Fuji X-Pro 1

- (Fuji Xe-1)

- Fuji 23mm F1.4

- Fuji 35mm F1.4

- Minolta Hi-Matic 7 SII

- Couple of rolls of film

Lightmeter and cable release

- Ipad Mini with camera connection kit (not on the picture)

- Ray Ban sunglasses

- Nexus 5 (not on the picture)

- External batterie for charging on the go

- Spare batteries and memory cards for the camera

- Hadley Pro

- B+W Type 40 Hardcase

- Notebook

- Fishermen´s Friend

This represents my maximum kit, usually I do not go out with all this stuff.
For example when shooting on the street I just take the X-Pro 1 and the 23mm lens to keep things light.

Nice and simple dude.
I am trying to decide between the x100s and xpro-1 at the moment.
I already have substantial nikon digital gear and are pursuing something lighter while I travel.

What really made you switch?

Nice bag Tim.
I`ve considered the XPro many times myself as a digital alternative to my M lenses.
The couple who own Fishermans Friends live across the street from me :)

Some wonderful shots there!
Thanks for sharing.
Any thoughts about the Minolta 7sII?
How do you like it, especially the lens quality when wide open?
Cheers!

    Hi,
    Thanks a lot :)
    The lens is very good even wide open.
    All in all a great camera, even though I sold it yesterday and now look for a Konica Hexar Af.
