In your bag 1016, Jansen Tang
I think Jansen has probably got the most pinhole cameras I have ever seen in one bag. Check them out.

My name is Jansen Tang, a travel and landscape photographer based in Singapore. Like most photographers, I have multiple camera bags for a variety of occasions, and as I recently developed a photographic fetish for wooden pinhole cameras, I thought I would feature something unique just for the fun of it.

Not too long ago, I funded ONDU ( on their Kickstarter endeavour to make wooden pinhole cameras widely available around the world, and got a medium format version for my contribution. It shoots 120mm film in 6×6, 6×9 and 6×12 formats. I got myself the Lumu light metering device ( also via the Kickstarter channel.

I had so much fun that I decided to embark on my “larger than full frame” collection and ordered the 135 Pano and 4×5″ versions as well. Though I started photography some 5 years ago using a variety of digital bodies, I soon realised that film photography helped my appreciate the art even more. I develop my own film now (B&W, C41, E6 and Caffenol); it is a truly immersive process.

Anyway, in my Think Tank Photo Shapeshifter (chosen because of its many pouches) I have:


* Ondu 4×5 Large Format Pinhole Camera

* Ondu Multiformat

* Ondu 135 Pano (used in Pano mode)

Small bags:

Think Tank Photo PowerHouse Air (for film storage)


* 35mm – Assortment of B&W and color

* 120mm – Fujichrome Velvia, Fuji Reala 100, Lomography Purple 100-400, Ilford PanF Plus 50

* 4×5″ – Ilford Delta 100, Kodak Ektar 100 (in 4×5″ holder)

iPhone 5s + Lumu light metering device

Joby Gorillapod + ballhead
