In your bag 368, Za’im Azmi
We have another fantastic bag for you and it is a young persons bag too. Za’im may only be 15 but he certainly knows what he wants to do. Come and have a look.
My name Za’im Azmi and I’m 15 years old. I live in Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia. I’m still a high school student and still learning photography. I’ve been into photography for 2 years now and I mainly shot street photography since 3 months ago. I’m part of the school magazines team and I shoot photos for it.
I started my interest in photography when I was 13. Been doing some research on camera gears and skills. I started with a Nikon D5000 with a kit lens and I’ve learned a lot about the basics from this camera. I’m not really get into street photography at this time and just started my interest in street photography 3 months ago. I’ve been seeing people over the place shooting street photography using a rangefinder camera and I decided to pick up a Canon Canonet QL17. Just started to shoots film 3 weeks ago. To be honest, using a rangefinder camera is pretty hard in the beginning but you’ll get used to it.
I’m now shooting film and digital but I still mainly use my DSLR because the price of the films and the developing process is expensive. But I’m sure, I will shoots more film in the next few months. Me personally likes film cameras more because it is quieter and a lot lighter. The colours also better than my D5000.
So lets start.
Here is what’s in my camera bag :
– Herringbone Atlantis Medium – It is a great bag! It is also a good looking bag. You can put up to 3 cameras inside. It got a really great comfort. If you want to buy one, check out www.storks.co .
– Nikon D5000 – My first ever camera, great for beginners and it is also pretty easy to use.
– Tamron 18-270mm VC – A great all-around lens! The f/ stop is pretty slow but the lens is pretty sharp. If you’re looking for and all-around lens, this lens is one the best in the market.
– Canonet QL17 and case – My first rangefinder camera and just one word can describe it, Amazing! I got this for pretty great deal, and this camera also got light meter built-in. The lens is rad and fast (40mm f/1.7). Get it now!
– Kodak Ultramax 400 and Fujifilm Superia Xtra 400 – Both are great and cheap tho! The colours are amazing.
– iPhone 4S
– Extra memory card
– USB cable
– Marker pen
No Leica M in my bag ahaha but sure will buy soon.
That’s all what’s in my camera bag and sorry for my bad English! I hope it was clear.
Thanks Japan Camera Hunter, loving your site! Keep on shooting!
