In your bag 1098, Andrew Smith
Well, I know yesterday I said I would not be featuring another shot without a bag, but this one has a fairly good excuse. He has a custom baggy/strappy thingy. Check it out.
As some one who has traveled most of the world with a camera, I can definitively say less is more! Over the past five years I have lived in the U.S. Spain and Japan. Traveled all across Europe, Australia and south-east Asia. It is around the practical need to travel light I built my own custom bag… or strap…just see for yourself.
I love my Fuji x100s, I have had it for over a year and dragged it all over Europe. It’s small size and quiet shutter make it great for street shooting, or just tossing it in to a suit case and hitting the road. With that said I have never been big on camera bags so I built this custom leather strap that has two small pockets to hold spare batteries while not cluttering my pockets. I normally carry one spare battery and one microfiber cloth for cleaning (the screen more than the lens). My friends have been so impressed I have made a couple for the as well, If I get enough interest I just might have to do a Kickstarter project.
Not your ordinary bag by any stretch of imagination, but definitely something refreshing in a world of heavy bags and big cameras.
Thanks for sharing your interesting strap with us, Andrew. Very cool.
