In your bag number 148, Azlan Ahmad
A very simple bag for you today, containing only the bare essentials. Some bag shots have tons of gear, and that is fine, but this is minimal. Lets see what is inside…


I’m a casual/weekend photographer of sort – started out in the mid 90’s with film and switched to digital in the mid noughties. Now it’s back to film for me as I find the medium having so much more to offer than digital – albeit a lot more work required (!). It was too easy surrendering your light-bending manipulation ability to the automation of digital.

In my bag:-

Leica M6 TTL with Voigtlander 35mm f/1,4 Nokton Classic
Leica CL with Summicron-C 40mm f/2
2x CR123 (for the SF 24D)
2x LR44 (For the M6)
Voigtlander LH-6 metal hood (fits both the 35mm & 50mm)
Zeiss 50mm f/2 Planar T* ZM
2x spare 35mm film rolls (at any one time)
Leica SF 24D
Sekonic L-308S
Messenger Bag by Massimo Dutti

The light meter in the CL is faulty – the meter still moves when exposed to light but reading is inaccurate. The Sekonic helps a lot. Currently waiting for the Voigtlander VC Speed Meter II to arrive which will help to save a bit of space. The Bag, which I absolutely love, lined with soft padding from my other Camera Bag, is already cramped as it is.

    Nice and simple Massimo Dutti bag. Do you share your images through the internet? Interesting words about film photography but although I really like film, I can’t see myself coming back and leaving digital.
