In your bag number 243, Luke Ding
A great bag from Malaysia for you all today. Luke has a great collection of Nikon cameras and he is happy to share them with you. Come and have a look at a street photographers bag.

My name is Luke and I live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I am a street photographer and really got obsessed when I met Eric Kim.
My photographic journey thus far is a short one and although I started in digital, I have now ventured into film.

So here is my gear. I dont carry all of it at any one time but will have at least one of these setups in my bag at all times.

The Bag:
I have the Crumpler 5 million (not pictured) and the Crumpler 7 million (pictured)

The Film setup:

My Pride and Joy:
Nikon FM3a with Carl Zeiss 50mm Planar T* f1.4 ZF. Artisan & Artist Strap and Opera Act 2 soft release.
Well not much more I can say about this setup apart that it’s absolutely beautiful. Got the FM3a brand spanking new. It was still a virgin and had to pop its cherry.
The Zeiss lens is gorgeous and sharp and contrasty.

My Everyday:
Nikon FE2 with Nikkor 35mm f2 AFD. Artisan & Artist Strap and Opera Act 1 soft release.
The FE2 is showing some wear but the absolutely gorgeous brass top and bottom plate is beginning to show.
The 35mm f2, well, just a classic all round great lens.

My No Brainer:
Nikon N90s with Nikkor 50mm f1.8 AF. Artisan & Artist Strap.
Fast autofocus for those times you just want to go brain dead. Will go through a roll of film in 8 seconds. Gotta be careful with this one.
The 50mm f1.8 AF. Got the Made in Japan version instead of the Made in China version.

My Digital:
Olympus EP3 with M.Zuiko 45mm f1.8. I also have the 25mm f1.4 Lumix Leica Sumillux (not pictured)
VF2 Electronic viewfinder and handstrap. Extra Battery and memory card holder.

Fujifilm Film Holder
Currently I am shooting Kodak Portra 400 or Agfa Vista 400. If i run low on these I shoot Kodak Ultramax 400.

Cigarettes…..well can’t go without these…

Lenspen and dust blower and cleaning cloths. Spare LR44 batteries and AA batteries (not pictured)

IPhone 4s 16g
