In your bag number 98, Carsten Schouler (LucisPictor)
Now that we are back rolling I have a bag for you that I have wanted to show for a long time. This bag belongs to a guy I know as LucisPictor and has been sitting in my ‘inyourbag’ file since the great crash. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Hi there,
I really enjoy your series “What’s in your bag” and would like to participate with my present “daily bag”.
As a Canon EOS shooter for several years, I always was carrying around large and heavy bags with two DSLRs and at least 5 or 6 lenses, sometimes more, inside.
But the Sony NEX-System has changed my photo bag a lot.

This is what I have in my daily bag at the moment:

It’s a CCS Hertiage bag in brown. I love the way it looks and its quality.

Inside I have:

Sony NEX-7
Sony NEX-3
Sigma DP1s
Metz 24 AF-1S Flash
Sony SEL 2.8/16
Sony SEL 18-55 OSS
Sony SEL 55-210 OSS

and those manual lenses adapted to E-mount:
Pentax-110 2.8/18
Tamron 2.5/24
Fujian CCTV 1.7/35
Olympus F-Zuiko 1.8/38 (PEN F)
Konica Hexanon AR 1.8/40
Jupiter-3 1.5/50
Leica Summitar 2/5cm
Konica Hexanon AR 1.4/57

and sometimes another lens, depending on what I plan to shoot.
That could be a Pentax-M 2.8/28, a Minolta Rokkor 2/45, a Leica Elmar 4/90 or perhaps a Leica Hektor 4.5/135.

The blue pouch holds replacement batteries and additional memory cards, filters and a viewfinder and a lens hood for the Sigma DP1s as well as some other smaller stuff.
There is still some space left in the bag to put in a compact film cam such as a Leica C2, a Minox 35GL or a Ricoh FF-1. Sometimes I also bring a Leica Digilux 2.
All that stuff is not as heavy as it appears to be. It’s perfectly alright to carry this bag a whole day.

    Would love to see an internal shot of this bag. That’s a lot of hardware to have just floating around – is an insert being used here?

    Great bag, enjoyed seeing the Jupiter 3 in there, interested to know you’ve found it. I am so pleased with mine on the M9. Cheers Jason

    What kind of bag is it?

    Thanks a lot for adding my bag.

    In the meantime some things have changed again. The Tamron 2.5/24 and the Konica Hexanon AR 1.8/40 are in the bag only occasionally. But instead I have the whole set of Pentax-110 glass inside (18, 24, 50 and 70mm) plus, since two days ago, a Sigma EX 2.8/30 as a “standard lens” for the NEX.

    The bag is a British CCS Heritage which I really love. And yes, I have separated the internal space with different dividers taken from other bags. I would hate to see my lenses jumping around inside the bag. ;)

    The J3 is an amazing lens. Not “exzellent” by today’s expectations but very characteristic. I enjoy using it.
