In your bag 267, Adrian Ong
Todays bag is going to inspire a lot of gear envy, I have no doubt about that. Especially when you consider that Adrian is only 16 years old. Check it out.
My name is Adrian Ong, a 16 year old student from Singapore, a great fan of this blog. I started photography with a Canon EOS 400D in 2006, when I was 10. But I knew nothing but to keep shooting. I read forums, blogs to learn, and fell in love with photography. But using it for couple of years, I found out I needed something for special. And less mainstream. A Rangefinder.
Thus I sold my DSLR, got myself a Leica M6 Classic. I love the way it works, a minimalist’s camera. I fell even deeper in love with photography. My dream camera was a Leica M9, and I had been saving for it since it launched in 2009. Finally saved enough, and I got the Leica M9-P instead. I am now a happy boy (with an empty bank account :D).
I’ve been wanting to post a picture of what’s in my bag, but was held back by my busy school work. Finally a chance to submit my bag after months and months, so I hope you’d like it!

I’m still quite new to Rangefinders, so I believe there are much more for me to improve on. I shoot everything and anything, because I believe one way to improve, is to keep doing it.
Thanks for sharing your bag, I have to admit that I am pretty jealous of your gear. You have a very impressive set up there.
Check out the links and make sure you comment too, we love that.
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.
Happy to see that you got what you wanted.
Such patronising remarks ^^ You have some great shots on your flickr, great work and keep shooting no matter what gear you have!
Thanks Jim! ;)
Very impressive bag Adrian! Really cool setup, all the best with the photgraphy
Also I’ll follow you on Flickr. I’m Lightworks UK.
Take care matey!
You have some really nice work on your flickr. Keep it up. And please tell me how you can afford an M9-P and an M6 and lenses with only 16? Puh. That’s impressive.
I saved for very very very long… My parents are supportive for my passion in photography. Thus most of the moolah comes from them. ;)
Impressive bag and work. Keep shooting.
Man… You doesn’t even have a drivers license yet, but you already have my dream setup
Nice set up, and also nice parents. If they ever need a very older brother to look after you, I am ever willing up for adoption.
That’s crazy! 16 and all that gear, great taste too!
when i was 16 i was happy to just afford a dreamcast :/
SIngapore continues to prove it’s interest and prowess in the world of photography. Maybe in 20 years..he can tell about his vintage M9!
Don’t you hate being envious?
So what if his parents can provide for him? Was it at your expense? Not your money, so shut the F up.
Well done to Adrian’s parents for being able to support their son’s passions. Chances are that he will turn out to be similar to his parents and do the same to his kids.
Just a kid playing with his dad’s equipment. Relax. The M6 is his though.
My dad does not have any common interest as me. ;)
