In your bag 497, Rikard Landberg
Rikard is here to show us how simple it can be. No bag in sight, so I am guessing that it a case of stuffing it in his pockets and shooting. Check it out.

My name is Rikard and I live in a small town in Sweden. I’m starting to get close to 30 years old and has recently started studying again.

I put almost all my free time on my own photo projects although I occasionally do some work too.

I have enjoyed taking photos since I got a canon film point and shoot camera when I was about 8 years.

In my teen years I went through quite a few cheap digital cameras before I bought my first DSLR a canon 350d. In a fairly short time I replaced my 350d with a Canon 40d that quickly became a Canon 5d. My 5d was my best friend for many years until I stumbled across a Yashica Electro 35 on a Swedish auction site.

I was completely sold on the whole rangefinder concept and started saving for a film Leica. I sold my 5d and bought a Minolta CLE that turned into a Leica CL that turned into a Leica M2 and that is where I am now!

I use my Leica M2 with a SUMMICRON 35. I only use Kodak T-Max 400 and Ilford Delta 400th

Fuji X100 is my backup camera that I use for work. I have always photographed with prime lenses so a Fuji X100 was an obvious choice instead of a new DSLR when i needed a digital again.

I measure the light with my Seconic 208. (my photo blog)

    I really get what you’re doing here. If the M2 and 35 Cron is your regular camera, then the X100/X100s is the closest match in terms of focal length and in the way you use it, short of a digital Leica M body. For me, at least, it’s inconvenient to mentally ‘switch modes’ between two cameras of different focal lengths and operation.

    Sometimes I wish Fuji would make an X100MF and give it a full manual focus lens with direct mechanical drive. They could project focus peaking into the OVF. Anyway, enough fantasy; I love your set-up as it is.

      Users enjoy manual focusing X100S. It has focus peaking, but the split focusing is much better.
