In your bag number 13, Rizal from Singapore

Hi my name is Rizal and I’m currently a Sociology undergraduate from Singapore. I try to shoot street photography in my free time with either my Minolta x-500, a Lumix G1 or even my iPhone 4.

My bag is an army surplus bag I got from eBay for $20 (I think I got cheated for it) but it’s good enough for my usual walkabout kit. It’s quite small but since it doesn’t have a shape, you can actually stuff quite a bit in it. I usually carry my cameras (you can fit both in it, but it’s a tight fit) in separate soft neoprene pouches (the black rectangle in the top right) that I got from this $2 shop from Japan called Daiso.

So what’s in my bag?

Left half of the picture: from left to right, top to bottom.

– A plastic bag for me to bundle everything up in case it rains
– My notebook and pen for me to jot down my notes for my thesis or other Eureka! moments
– Lens tissues and keys in 1 front pouch
– Lip balm and tester sample of some perfume (Singapore’s really humid so you need something to keep you smelling fresh)

Top Right half:

– Gatsby facial wipes and blotter paper because my face gets really oily as the day goes by
– Olympus mju ii camera. I just got it for a great bargain a few days ago. My first test roll is in it.
– Generic iPhone earbuds
– Another great Daiso buy – my $2 wallet
– All these sit on the neoprene pouch I was talking about

Bottom right:

– iPhone 4. That’s a picture of me and my lovely girlfriend as the wallpaper.
– My trusty Minolta X-500 with the 50mm f1.4 mounted on it. It’s usually that or the 50mm f1.7 or 35mm f2.8.
– I made that wrist strap out of my girlfriend’s head band. Couldn’t justify paying money for a wrist strap so I stole her head band and made my own.

Thanks to Rizal for kindly sharing his bag with us. I am particularly loving the coating on the Rokkor lens, I am a total sucker for them.

Keep them coming folks, get your bag on Send me a hi resolution image of the bag (please make sure it is horizontal) and its contents, with some details about yourself and what you shoot. Oh and don’t forget your contact details (twitter, flickr, tumbler et al).
