In your bag 468, Andrew Englehardt
Andrew is only 14, but he already has the film bug, and a bag for many to drool over. Come and see what this new entrant to photography keeps in his bag.
I’ve finally got to it; I’ve spent too much time just drooling over the other bags… why not contribute!? My name is Andrew Englehardt and I’m a 14 year old student in the U.S. I am usually busy with school and music, but I ALWAYS find time for cameras and photography. It was just a year ago when I got into it all; I was taking the regular flower/sunset “beauties”. I was trying to find my niche and I quickly found that street photograpchy was it. Shooting, reading, and immersing, I was beginning have more and more fun. That was when ThatNikonGuy and Eric Kim spoke on spree-cast and they critiqued my photo. Mind I say it was a crap photo, but it got me motivated and here I am today. As for the gear:
1. X-Pro 1 w/ 35mm 1.4 18mm 2.0
I find this to be an outstanding digital option for one looking for a more discreet option, but can “do work”. The 18mm is my solid lens but the 35mm is growing on me. It’s really made me more comfortable taking photos.
2. Olympus Infinity Stylus
Those looking for an almost disposably cheap point and shoot might want look into this. I picked mine up for five dollars, really cheap. As digital has become almost boringly perfect, I have had a strong pull to shoot that film “stuff” . I see this as a good stepping stone to get into it.
I bring the basics: battery, memory, and cleaning supplies. Along with that I’ve got a printed copy of “The Photographer’s Rights” (thanks Bellamy!) as I’ll be traveling to NYC this April. Like a gun, hopefully I won’t have to use it, but it’s there if I need.
4. Incase DSLR Sling Pack
^^^ It’s just that. A nice little bag.
Thanks to you (Bellamy) and everyone else for this little community. This is a great resource and it’s a lot of fun!
Thanks for sharing your bag with us Andrew. Lovely little mix of film and digital you have there. Jolly good.

I’ve got mad respect for you starting to shoot so young! Keep up the great work man!
Dang, an X-Pro1 at 14, nice work!!!
Just curious, you use a sling bag for DSL even though you have a non-SLR system camera? Doesn’t the bag have way too much space and dividers for your needs?
