In your bag 946, Oleg Shchapov
Definitely later than usual, but finally online, we have a bag from the Ukraine. Come and check this one out.

Hello, my name is Oleg Shchapov and I’m from Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine.

I picked up my first Digital SLR two years ago and photography became one of my favorite hobbies.  It has been a while, and I realized that the DIGITAL is a regression of photography. I’m a big fan of black and white film photos and cameras.

In my bag I had:

– Leica M3 DD – the best 35 mm camera! camera with it!

– Leica CL  – my first manual camera, good in itself.

– Ricoh GR1 – without working LCD, sharp and small, always with me.

– Rollei35 – tesar 3.5, use it sometimes with color film.

– Leica Summicron 40mm 2.0 – mostly with CL, nice lens.

– Leica Teleelmarit-m 90mm 2.8 – one of the best rangefinder portrait lens on M3!

– Voigtlander 21mm 4.0 – love it! With M3 mostly.

– Sekonic 508 – spot meter 1 degree, my adviser.

– Red, Yellow, ND4 filters.

– handmade pinhole from camera cup.

– bulk 30.5m film on rolls. Double-x, Tri-x and Arista EDU 400; AGFAcolor100.

– Ipad mini, Koss Porta Pro, handy B2710, wallet.

    Great photos Oleg. I love that your Flickr photos are only uploads of your best photos, not everything you shoot. And it’s great that you post photos shot on the cameras featured in your bag above. All too often on JCH people are really just showing off their film cameras. I then go on to their Flickr photos and see 90% of their shots done on a digital camera not shown in their bag. So that’s refreshing.

    Hi Oleg,

    Great name for a photographer: Shchapov. Unbeatable, in fact.

    [ That’s SharpPOV. For those that have difficulty working that out, try: sharp point-of-view. Especially with the Leicas! ;-) ]

    Please excuse the joke and Best wishes,
