one nikon f3hp + 20mm 2.8 Af with Focusing Screen Type E Grid and a soft shutter
one 45mm 2.8 gn modified ai in second lens

one lunapro + Variable Angle Attachment in a Minolta IV pouch

some tx 400

swiss kniff

and the cheap version of on very nice book of Raymond Depardon ( from Magnum )

this bag is “ordinary musette bag” with “MATIN” Partition camera insert and MATIN Air Cushion Strap Pad

Bests regards

ps: i have no blog, no thumbl , no FB…. nothing :)

Thanks for sharing this simple setup with us Damien. I have to confess, the Nikon F3 (any variation, but the F3/T) is my personal favourite SLR of all time. There are many others that I love, but this one was my first serious camera that I owned.
Check out the links…..wait, there are no links. So just come and comment.

Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on 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.

    I very much like the photo. Perfect depth of field and exposure. Perfect developing and scan.

    As for the bag, that’s very much my ideal philosophy for solo street shooting. Tri-X and one camera. I normally just carry one lens, but if I did carry two it’d probably be a 28 and 45, as these are the only two lenses I have in AI.

    Anyway, I loved the bag shot, but I’d also like to see your portfolio!

    What a great setup for classic photography — everything you need, nothing you don’t. And I agree: The F3 rocks! I have three of them: non-HP finder (really beat, but still working 100%), T and P variations. I usually carry 24, 35, 50 and 85/105 lenses, but often drop one at either end to lighten my load. Anyone looking to go back to film days couldn’t do better than an F3 and a couple of lenses, at least in my opinion.

    The F3 is brilliant but bulky. I’ve got an F3 with the DW3 waist level holder: it’s a brilliant camera that I run a 24mm on.

    Champion SLR and I don’t think you can do much better than an FE/F2/F3 for hardy travel/reportage cameras. It’s a shame the glass is still so expensive.
