In your bag No: 1172 – Joe Morrissey
Joe shares with us not so much of a bag really. In fact I think this one is going to prove rather controversial with some of you guys. Is this really a camera bag at all? Still, it is what Joe uses to shoot, so check it out.
This is the contents of my “camera bag”.
In truth, i don’t use one, but theres a good reason for that, I primarily shoot with an iPhone.
I guess my “bag” would be my pocket…
I love shooting with my Fuji X100, but even a camera that is promoted as being so portable, is an inconvenience for me.
I like to capture the moment and being prepared for every moment, isn’t the easiest thing to do.
As they say, “The best camera is the one that’s with you” and if you have your Leica M6 is with you, then use it!
But my iPhone always happens to be with me, so it will always be the best.
In my bag, we have:
iPhone 6 Plus: A recent upgrade, I’ve used iPhones for photography since the 3GS and I like to stay on top of the tech.
Beats urbeats headphones: Aside from listening to music while shooting, they’re perfect cover for have your phone pointed at people. Also good for remote shutter action.
Moment Lenses (18mm Wide & 60mm Telephoto): In my opinion, Moment make the best add-on glass for iPhone. The wide angle lens has very little fallout or curve distortion and the telephoto makes up for the lack of optical zoom. Sturdy lenses with a bayonet mount.
iPad Mini (With case by Takeover UK): Essential for on the go editing. A little more redundant since my upgrade to the larger screened iPhone 6 Plus, but I’m including it as it has been part of my “essentials list” for a few years now and I’m yet to phase it out completely.
