In your bag No: 626, Daniel King
Dan shares with us his bag today. A nice simple Domke rig with a versatile range of film and digital gear. Come and have a look.
Hi! My name is Dan King, a 24 year old civil engineer with a dangerous photography addiction from Liverpool, UK.
I carry a camera wherever I am and city life dictates my subject matter. The urban environment is something that interests me as an engineer and photographer.
I’ve been guilty of chopping and changing my setup ALOT over the last few years, but I’ve had this setup for a while now and I am managing to resist the temptation of new gear. I’ve had SLRs, rangefinders, TLRs, polaroids and just about everything in between, but I found the gear was over complicating the process, so my setup is a lot lighter and simpler now.
I shoot both film and digital, digital if I am feeling impatient but I have a soft spot for film and absolutely LOVE shooting analogue. I shoot both colour and B&W film, developing my own monochrome when I have the time. I haven’t quite nailed down the process yet, but I’m getting there. I don’t take all 4 cameras out with me, normally picking either digital or film:
Domke F-XB Bag – A cracking small bag for what I need, just wish the velcro wasn’t so loud!
FujiFilm X100 – Probably my favourite digital camera purchase ever, love it
Sony RX100 – A great digital compact which packs major image quality in a tiny body
Yashica T3 – My most recent purchase, it was an absolute bargain for Zeiss glass that I couldn’t resist
Ricoh GR1 – An absolute dream to use, snap focus addict
Film – I shoot with a mixture of film really, whatever I can get my hands on. Would love to shoot portra all the time, but it’s just too expensive!

Thanks for sharing your gear with us Dan. Great to see that mix of film and digital going on.
Check out the links and make sure you come and comment.
Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on Japancamerahunter.com. Send me a hi resolution image of the bag (please make sure it is horizontal) and its contents, with some details about yourself and what you shoot. Oh and don’t forget your contact details (twitter, flickr, tumbler et al). Send the bag shots here. Please understand that there is a long wait now as there is a backlog of submissions. Not all make the cut, so make sure yours is funny/interesting/quirky. And please make sure the shot is of good quality, as the ones that are not do not go up.
Same bag (agree with the velcro ‘loudness’ haha), same x100 and same gr1 (except mine is grey/white cream).
Portra? I shoot most of the time with hp5 but recently bought some portra to try some colors to my photos and yup, its quite pricey.
