In your bag number 141, Jon Ellis
Today we have a shot that is way different from the norm, and I love it! My friend Jon has submitted a shot that is going to make others think about how they put their shots together. This is the game changer. Check it out!
This bag feature is a bit different because it features the bag of a friend of mine, the very talented Mr. Jon Ellis. Now Jon is a man of few words, as he prefers to let the pictures do the talking, so the information that I can divulge to you is scant.
But, in Jon’s words…
Hasselblad XPan II w/45mm, IR filter (there is SFX 200 in the camera), a roll of Paradies 100 reversal film (cheap german drugstore re-badged Kodak Elite Chrome), and Yoshida & Company Porter bag. Taken through a Hasselbad 503cw, Distagon 40mm FLE, mounted on a Gitzo explorer tripod, with a Canon 5D mk II, EF100mm ƒ2.8 Macro.
Another happy amateur, now living in Northern Germany, after ten years in Tokyo.

Thanks for sharing the fun and interesting shot Jon, this is very cool. The viewpoint really makes this bagshot standout. Go and check out Jon’s links, he is a very talented photographer and I am a big fan of his work.
Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on Japancamerahunter.com. 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). Send the bag shots here.
Trust Ellis to do something clever.
Love the “digital” strap on the Xpan, so meta ;)
extremely clever shot.
Jon you are ahead of the curve ;)
