In your bag 467, Anthony Frattaroli
Anthony runs a camera store, he also has a love of MS-Optical lenses. Just like me then. Today we get the chance to see inside the bag of someone who can have any camera they choose. And what did Anthony choose? Check it out.
My name is Anthony Frattaroli and I run a camera store in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
I see strange and wonderful equipment come and go every day, so I’ve had a chance to try a little bit of everything. We work with cameras from large format to subminiature, from the oldest plate cameras to the newest DSLRs, and our rental business dips into the video waters. It’s a blast, and the best part of the whole deal is that I get to mess around with all of it.
But when I go out shooting, I try to keep it simple. It keeps me thinking, and it keeps me honest. And I never have to worry about batteries.
In the bag:
Leica M3 DS
Voigtlander 12mm f5.6 Ultra-Wide Heliar & viewfinder
Voigtlander 25mm f4 Snapshot Skopar & viewfinder
MS-Optical 28mm f4 Perar Tpirlet (SIC)
MS-Optical 35mm f3.5 Perar Triplet
MS-Optical 50mm f1.1 MS-Optical Sonnetar
Original Fuji film case
All in a Domke F-5XB.
The MS-Optical lenses are my favourite things ever and I don’t know how I ever lived without them. The film case is stuffed with Rollei Retro 80s, Ektar 100, and Tri-X.
I carry a medium format Fujica GW690 from time to time, but that doesn’t even come close to fitting in the bag, so it rides on its own strap.
Thanks for sharing your bag with us Anthony. I notice you are missing a couple of the MS lenses though…haha.
