In your bag 488, Daniel Cuthbert
Daniel is about to go on his travels (at time of writing he is probably well through them now) and has selected a pretty cool bag to share with us. Come and have a look at this great setup.

About to head off to Bangkok, Hong Kong and Japan and after a long deliberation as to what would work, this I feel is the right combo.

The Leica’s have been with me on numerous documentaries, they are rock solid workhorses. The Mamiya 7 is just one of those cameras that produce images that make you sigh whilst scanning. Leica might have the glow, the Mamiya has oomph.

In the Bag (Billingham 445)…

Leica M6 TTL

Leica M8

Summicron 35mm

Summicron 50mm

Summilux 24mm

Mamiya 7 + 80mm lens

Iphoney, notepad and 1940’s Parker Duofold fountain pen

Film wise, I’m running low but the Mamiya has to be Ektar (sexiest film I’ve shot with) and for the Leica, Fuji Acros 100/400 with some sneaky Velvia thrown in there for good measure.

My main site is at and my daily is at

Might see you on the streets in Tokyo!

    Good equipment in the hands of an excellent photographer (as the website prooves). I’ld like to know: when do you use the analogue mf-camera and when the digital equipment? What are the criteria of your decision?
    Kind regards from Germany

    Thanks for your kind words. There’s something about medium format that appeals to me. The Mamiya produces these images that just blow me away. Whilst I love my Leica’s, I find for some projects, such as my Bushman one, MF had the look and feel I was going for.
